President Trump: Green New Deal Sounds “Like A High School Term Paper”
During a raucous rally last night in Texas, President Trump weighed in on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ridiculous “Green New Deal” – and he did not mince words.
The President called the extreme proposal to move our economy away from capitalism toward socialism under the guise of environmentalism a “massive government takeover that would destroy our incredible economic aims. They introduced the so-called “Green New Deal.”
He went on, saying the proposal, which would reportedly ban air travel and require the elimination of cows, “sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark.”
The President also rightfully noted that “it would shut down American energy, which I don’t think the people of Texas are gonna be happy with that.” Watch President Trump blast the “Green New Deal” here.
The President was on point with his remarks. The “Green New Deal” would change American life as we know it for the worse, and it is so unrealistic that its proponents refuse to detail how they would pay for any of it.
Thankfully, we have a President who is willing to stand up for capitalism and the American energy worker.
The President’s comments about the “Green New Deal” were not the only noteworthy things he said about the energy industry yesterday. Before his rally in Texas, the President lauded the value of coal in a Tweet, writing that “Coal is an important part of our electricity generation mix and @TVAnews should give serious consideration to all factors before voting to close viable power plants, like Paradise #3 in Kentucky!”
President Trump is using his bully pulpit to try and help coal workers who could be out of a job in Kentucky if this plant closes. The years of neglecting America’s energy workers are over, but there is still much more work to do.
