President Trump raked socialist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s (D-NY) ever popular Green New Deal over the coals on Monday: “While we’re focused on practical solutions, more than 100 Democrats in Congress now support the so-called Green New Deal. Their plan is estimated to cost our economy nearly $100 trillion-a number unthinkable, a number not affordable even in the best of times.” Trump made the remarks in a speech about America’s Environmental Leadership in which he praised the U.S. for delivering on carbon emissions reductions, while those nations clinging to the Paris Climate Accord failed to do so. In typical socialist fashion, it’s rules for thee but not for me.

President Donald Trump slammed democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal on Monday while speaking at the White House on America’s Environmental Leadership.
Trump noted America’s successes in leading the world in carbon emissions reductions while other signatories on the Paris Climate Accord have failed to deliver results.
“And today, the United States is ranked — listen to this — number one in the world for access to clean drinking water — ranked number one in the world,” Trump said. “One of the main messages of air pollution — particulate matter — is six times lower here than the global average. So we hear so much about some countries and what everyone is doing. We’re six times lower than the average. That’s a tremendous number.”
