President Trump ripped the Green New Deal today, saying that the plan for fighting climate change “might be a bigger hoax” than the Russia probe.
“The Green New Deal is a hoax like the hoax I just went through,” Trump said during a speech promoting a liquefied natural gas export facility in Louisiana. “I’m not sure, it might even be a bigger one. And mine was pretty big.”
Trump also added that if the AOC’s plan was implemented now, “everybody in this room gets fired” because backers of the plan “don’t like clean, beautiful natural gas.”
“Everybody go home, you just lost your jobs,” Trump said.
As you probably know, the deal calls for the quick elimination of using fossil fuels and achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it also calls for universal healthcare.
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said Republicans are spreading misinformation about the Green New Deal because they fear climate change is a losing issue for the GOP.
“The reason why you hear constant disinformation about the Green New Deal is because they know how vulnerable they are,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “If it really was just a silly little fairy tale they would have just let it rock. But they know the knowledge and energy that is behind this.”
