Mayors left out of Trump’s environmental leadership address | Smart Cities Dive

Does he actually know how important the role is of Mayors in this Country? I’m not too sure he does.

Dive Brief:

President Donald Trump touted America’s environmental leadership in an address on Monday that highlighted his administration’s work on improving air and water quality, reducing carbon emissions and cleaning hazardous waste sites.

Trump also slammed the proposed Green New Deal, saying it is “not affordable” and will hurt minority communities. He said he will “not stand for it,” and will ensure his administration protects the environment and the economy. Secretary Rick Perry echoed this sentiment, noting, “[F]or too long, there’s been this conventional wisdom that you’ve got to choose between economic growth and environmental protection. That’s a false choice.”

“We have only one America. We have only one planet. That’s why, every day of my presidency, we will fight for a cleaner environment and a better quality of life for every one of our great citizens,” Trump said.
