Trump touts environmental leadership in speech

Trump touts environmental leadership in speech

"I'm always amazed that people would say that", Perry said, in response to a question about critics wondering why Trump spoke about the environment in a recent speech.

"We want the cleanest air, we want crystal clean water - and that's what we're doing", Trump said during a speech at the White House.

Trump is "the most anti-environmental president in US history".

"We can have arguments about it isn't happening for this reason or that", he said.

In his interview with the Journal-Constitution, Marcus said that while Trump "sucks" at communication, the president has "got a businessman's common sense approach to most things".

"From day one my administration has made it a top priority to ensure that America is among the very cleanest air and cleanest water on the planet", Trump said in the East Room.

Trump delivered remarks Monday afternoon in the East Room of the White House alongside Cabinet members such as Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Interior Secretary David Bernhardt. We need to live in a world that has cleaner air. "Punishing Americans is never the right way to produce a better environment or a better economy". He highlighted acts of environmental stewardship his administration has taken to improve the environment. But they also show increases - since Mr Trump took office - in fine particulate matter emissions such as soot and smoke from the combustion of coal and oil.

"I feel very very emotionally wedded to the vets", Trump said in a call with military veterans last month.

Environmental advocates called the episode surreal.

"It's absurd for President Trump to claim any environmental credentials when his administration continues to drive a destructive pro-polluter agenda at the expense of the American people", said Ms Jill Tauber, who is vice-president of litigation, climate and energy at Earthjustice, which has filed 120 lawsuits against the administration.

More recently, a growing number of cities, states, businesses and even some utilities have pledged to try to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions - a trend in direct conflict with the Trump administration's support of fossil fuels.

White House Council for Environmental Quality Chair Mary Neumayr repeatedly emphasized during the call that the President's message would be focused on touting improving environmental protections alongside a thriving economy.

John Matze, the libertarian CEO of Parler, a Twitter alternative used by Trump supporters, said he had tracked the IP address to ensure his invitation was real.
