  1. Ignore problems and they magically go away.
    Nuke hurricanes and they magically go away.
    Ignore nat'l debt and it magically goes away.
    Ignore the fat gut and it magically goes away.
    Ignore debt and it magically goes away.
    Vote for me…

  2. This is a guy who wants to LAUNCH NUCLEAR WEAPONS INTO HURRICANES!! So, yeah, he's obviously a real environmental expert… 💣💥🔥☠💀👻⚰

  3. Oh, yes. A person who has spent his WHOLE LIFE inside buildings in New York City knows more than anybody about the environment. Because he had to file environmental impact reports for his real estate projects?

  4. Boy are Americans stupid…..you think Bozo cares one whit about 2090? He doesn't care about the consequences of today, much less 70 years from now….that is a very STUPID argument….

  5. I have never even embarrassed myself this badly. We sent a clown with the mentality of a toddler to represent the USA.
    Anyone who isn’t embarrassed is freaking brain dead.
    It’s past time to pull the plug on this freak.
    IMPEACH THE MURDEROUS CONMAN

  6. Don't overlook that the future cost of inaction doesn't fall on the current Republican administration, and like its President, the US electorate tends to have a very limited memory.

  7. During one of the moon base projects a guy name Kirk Sorenson was working on how to power a lunar base and rediscovered the Thorium fueled Molten Salt Reactor, which is a completely different type of nuclear reactor. Here are 2 of his TEDx talks about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2vzotsvvkw and this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kybenSq0KPo/ Interestingly America is NOT INVESTING MUCH in this area, BUT the Chinese are. All of the original data from the original experiment at Oak Ridge Tennessee was uploaded to the web and then promptly downloaded by many including the Chinese. And no one stole it, it was simply given away. So when they say in this vid that other countries like China are developing (2:55) they are not just developing Wind & solar they are also developing the next generation of nuclear power which they downloaded for free. So rather than being at the forefront of this technology America just gave it away.

  8. Maybe it was a good thing that Trump didn't attend the climate meeting. The adults probably got more done without a puling, tantrum-throwing toddler in the room continually disrupting things.

  9. Think about it, this is the face and voice that America presents to the WORLD everyday! Lying Donny, career criminal.

  10. Spouting lies and then threatening media on tape. Clean water? Nope. Clean air? Nope. Wealthy country? Nope. Spectacular country with jobs and pensions? Nope Happy marriage? Nope Tiny carrot? Yep.

  11. Go listen to a toddler when they lie. The cadence in their voice sounds exactly like Trump’s whenever he’s talking about anything.

  12. I think it's dangerous that people have to ask if trump is dangerous. If someone has to ask, than the word dangerous ceases to have meaning

  13. As a Scandinavian I admire the fact that you Americans never seem to give up in trying to reason with trumpsupporters. Where I come from we tend to ignore blatant stupidity right away. It’s heartwarming to witness that ❤️

  14. The Elected Official earlier stated he’s was a climate denier…now he’s claiming he knows about the environment.

    He now needs to be quiet!.

  15. Trumpet is without a doubt the rudest potus of modern times, arguably all time, you gotta laugh at that mantra of his "I know a very lot about ??" Yet he's clueless!!

  16. when will the big macs and fries kick in? someone should just tell tRump to shut up, that's language he'd understand. he knows nothing about anything except how to lie and con people. Shut up tRump

  17. Heat wave? What heat wave? This is not happening folks. It’s fake news. Our dear leader says so. The stable genius insists it's all a huge hoax. That’s why he withdrew from the Paris Accord and is reversing Obama’s regulations on CO2 emissions. Air quality is already plummeting. Go figure.

  18. It's tragic when people are so stupid they don't even know they're stupid. Though that can't be said of people that fully know they're dishonest but won't ever admit it.
    And, yes, I'm taking about Trump in both cases.
    What a major criminal this man is.

  19. About everything that tRump says he has done as trying to be a president more than likely was done by Our President Barack Obama or President Obama had a hand in it. Example. The improving economy.

  20. And I suppose that the tariffs figure into this because China is buying Brazil's soybeans instead of those from the US.

  21. Why do we want to be the top producer of fossil fuel? I personally don't think we should. We should be advocating clean energy. Except that doesn't benefit the Koch remaining brother wanting to screw the U.S.

  22. Nobody knows more about the environment then Trump. He will protect us from the chinese oax, from all wind turbines that cause cancer and from those illegal hurricanes. He is going to bomb them all. Release the kraken! MAGA!

  23. Trump skipped the meeting to grab a Big Mac and take a nap. His knowledge about the environment is limited to the room he is in. He must have grown up near Flint Michigan and drank leaded water, because his brain never developed. Remember, Trump is ALL KNOWING and has the highest IQ of anyone ever. Just ask him.

  24. MucusScabsNuerologicalllyBankruptCommunists (msnbs) where your proof you bunch of mentally challenged tards, even the so called scientists can’t even agree on Global Warming

  25. Come on..no one really believes him when he says he knows something; HE doesn't even believe it..he just knows how that plays to his deranged and traitorous base that are equally clueless, except they truly don't know it.

  26. The only thing I'm willing to believe that Trump knows more about than most people is how Putin likes his eggs in the morning.

  27. Please do the world a huge favor and take a lesson from your buddy Epstein and hang up. You will be the first president to take his own life and assure your place in history

  28. Msnbc is a spitting image of the propaganda Joseph Goebbels put out in Germany in the 30's…I mean to a tee! They have hitler's play book! There's never been anything like this in America's history! When it's all said and done…we're going to find out which America hating Marxist organization funds this crap…most likely the Nazi Soros, you people will be afraid to walk down the streets because of the traitors that you've been!

  29. And Earth The climate has been through alot of changes past 100 million years …Nothing man did to change it…Hottest its ever been in America was 1913…So with Earth changing with or without man…Been forest fires before man …Worry about your people and earth will take care of itself …3 ICE ages lost civilizations and you me cant change earth changing..

  30. Trump 2020 Keep Earthlings safe without some Demshyt Trying to make factory workers pay go down to pay more in taxes and work 2 jobs

  31. Shut him up please he is a raving LUNATIC are we waiting for him to shoot PEOPLE on 5th Avenue?WTF IS GOING ON.

  32. NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT TRUMP AND ALL THE JOBS AND TAXES HE COULD BE PRODUCING RIGHT HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! MILLIONS

  33. two faced lying trump wants the cleanest water, yet overturned the Obama law that prevented Coal companies from dumping their contaminated sewer into our drinking water and now is overturning the Obama law on Methane rules, so companies can dump more Methane into our air that he wants to be the cleanest.  Plus he overturned the laws preventing Dow Chemical from using deadly chemicals in pesticides.  Looks like all his grand children will inherit a super clean planet, if they stop breathing the air and drinking our water.  So SAD   SAVE AMERICA FIRE TRUMP

  34. Trump has full access to all the information and he knows this man made Climate change is a total fraud…C02 had nothing to do with anything, is not a pollutant…also he is no longer funding this phony science with contracts that state, here is the answer we want, you figure out how to get there….and here is a big check for false science.

  35. PresidentTrump needs to think before he speaks because while his base love his racist, xenophobic and misogynistic remarks, they would be totally horrified to hear him say “ I’m an environmentalist “.

  36. The only people who think Trump knows a lot about anything a president needs to know are his cult-followers. #CULT45

  37. TRUMP IS A MURDERER. Removing DEFERRED Action for Medical. Children will die after being ripped out of their hospital beds. MURDERER.

  38. Trump is going to win the 2020 election. The elites will make sure of it and we will all continue to suffer 🤦🏽‍♀️

  39. Windmill will only affect people with the name 'TRUMP', can a person from a college be more stable than people who graduate from HARVARD?

  40. The only thing Trump knows quite a bit about is LOSING this clown 🤡 doesn’t know his butt from a hole in the ground. I hope no one is buying this con job! What a waste of oxygen

  41. PRESIDENT TRUMP KNOWS 'CLIMATE CHANGE' IS THE 'DARLING TOPIC' OF THE LEFT – CLEAN AIR AND CLEAN WATER ARE THE ONLY ELEMENTS WE CARE ABOUT PLUS A GREAT ECONOMY.
