‘We will have a big impact’: Trump says he wants to get ‘all of the countries’ on board with air-conditioning
The president’s latest public remarks suggest that he has some serious air-cooled ideas about the future of the United States.
Trump told a crowd of more than 100,000 in New Hampshire on Wednesday that he would like to get “all of our countries” on board.
But he made it clear that he doesn’t want to rely on the United Nations.
Trump said that the United Nation was doing an excellent job in keeping climate change a top priority, but that he does not believe that the world should put a price on carbon.
The U.N. talks on climate change, he said.
The president also said that his administration is “working on a plan to have a lot of coal mines and coal mines shut down.”
He said that coal mining is a bad thing, because “it takes away jobs and it takes away money.”
Coal mining “is bad because it takes money from the people who are working in the mines and puts it in the pockets of the people making a lot more money,” Trump said.
“And that’s what we want to do.”
He added that his proposal would be paid for by eliminating a tax on the export of coal, which he said is costing the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars.
The coal industry has long been opposed to any tax on coal.
It has also lobbied for repeal of the federal tax on exports of fossil fuels, which is known as the “fossil fuel surtax.”
Trump’s plan would eliminate that tax, which the Trump administration argues is a tax unfairly imposed on U.H.S.-based companies that are not directly involved in coal mining.
“We’re not going to have coal mines in the United State of America,” Trump told the crowd.
“But if we don’t make a deal, if we keep doing what we’re doing, we’re not gonna have coal in the country, OK?
We’re going to take it out.”
The president did not mention a plan by the Environmental Protection Agency, which Trump has said he wants the government to review.
Environmentalists have been skeptical of his plan to slash greenhouse gas emissions and the Paris climate accord.
Trump has been more vocal about climate change since taking office, but his stance on climate has remained more of a nebulous topic.
Trump was in New York on Wednesday, and his administration did not offer much detail about its climate change policy.
“I would like for us to get a lot done and I would like us to have more coal,” Trump was asked by reporters after the speech.
“It’s a lot to do and I want us to do a lot.”
The speech also provided some information about the Trump presidency’s foreign policy agenda, including the possibility of sending more U. S. troops to Iraq.
Trump also said Wednesday that the U.,S.
military was “a big deal” and that he had a lot going on in his first 100 days in office.
“This is going to be a big deal, not just in my first 100 hours, but my first hundred years,” he said, according to Reuters.
