Trump Mocks Green New Deal During CPAC Speech

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

President Trump mocked the Green New Deal during his speech at CPAC.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Our country is in big trouble, folks, because we have to get it back,” Trump said. “And when I look at what is happening on the other side, I encourage it. I say, no, no, I think the New Green Deal, or whatever the hell they call it …”

The Green New Deal, favored by prominent Democratic politicians such as freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and most of the current 2020 presidential candidates, would overhaul the country’s energy and economic policy and cost trillions of dollars. Among the proposals is a call to upgrade “all existing buildings” to “achieve maximum energy efficiency,” although mounting evidence suggests carbon dioxide emissions have little to do with energy efficiency.

“The Green New Deal, I encourage it,” Trump continued sarcastically after boos from the audience. “I think it’s really something that they should promote.”

The president joked about electricity being dependent on blowing wind and the policy that would lead to no air travel.

Meanwhile, Green New Deal backer New York Democrat representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being criticized for using car service and not public transportation.

The New York Post reports:

Since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign heavily relied on those combustible-engine cars — even though a subway station was just 138 feet from her Elmhurst campaign office.

She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.

In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.

The campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard transactions.

The Green New Deal is not realistic as Ocasio-Cortez behavior shows.
