Trump’s Speech Full of More Hot Air Than His Policies and Rollbacks

Trump Fails to Mention Climate Crisis in Speech

Jonathon Berman,

Washington, DC -- Today, Donald Trump gave a speech attempting to change the narrative surrounding his rollbacks and attacks on clean air, clean water, and climate safeguards. While attempting to spin his deadly and dangerous policy and administrative actions, Trump, who entered office as the only world leader to deny climate science, failed to mention climate change even once.

In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:

“Donald Trump’s speech today was full of more hot air than his dangerous policies and rollbacks  are pumping into our atmosphere. Attempting to greenhouse gaslight the American people with a single speech -- one that fails to even acknowledge the climate crisis -- won’t help the families and communities suffering from the toxic pollution caused by Trump’s dangerous agenda. No amount of speeches, lies, or stunts will ever change the fact that Donald Trump has the worst record on the environment and climate of any president in American history.”
