Donald Trump No Fan Of Our Environment
No one needs to guess where I stand on Donald Trump. While I somewhat enjoy what the Republican Party is being forced to go through–after all they encouraged the crazy whack-jobs in the past in the hope it would deny President Obama a second term–I also know the antics of Trump are not good for the political process or our nation. After all, the only way to sum up Trump is to say he is temperamentally unbalanced. He is an egomaniac who will never be the GOP nominee.
This morning I was totally slack-jawed when I came across this back-and-worth with Chris Wallace and Trump.
TRUMP: “I’m not cutting services. But I’m cutting spending. … I may cut Department of Education. I believe Common Core is a very bad thing. … I think that it should be local education. … Environmental protection: What they do is a disgrace. Every week they come out with new regulations. They’re making it impossible – “
WALLACE: “Who’s going to protect the environment?”
TRUMP: “They – we’ll be fine with the environment. We can leave a little bit, but you can’t destroy businesses.”
Can you imagine what Teddy Roosevelt is doing in his grave today?
Can you imagine Trump having any idea what TR even thought about concerning the environment?
