Trump Mocks Democrats' Green Dream to Eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Military
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's proposed legislation slammed by President
President Donald Trump sarcastically mocked the Democrats' so-called Green New Deal initiative led by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (NY-14), which seeks to save the planet and ‘revolutionize’ the US economy.
Trump, who is already a fierce skeptic of climate change, stopped short of calling the deal 'the worst ever.'
The President believes that spending trillions to transform the US economy would be wasted and would undermine America’s competitive advantage on the world stage.
“I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called ‘Carbon Footprint’ to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same,” Trump tweeted Saturday.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's "Green New Deal" proposal faced huge criticism from many including a Wall Street Journal writer who described it as "idiotic."
WSJ’s Kimberley Strassel shredded Democratic socialist Ocasio-Cortez's proposal saying it made her "laugh so hard" that she "nearly cried."
“By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried,” Strassel said on Twitter.
So many lies from you in one tweet! I bet the Green New Deal scares the hell out of your owner, Putin, the oil interests that own the GOP, and your murderous, terrorist friends in Saudi Arabia! Your sarcasm is yet more evidence of how great the plan truly is!— Jim Thompson (@jwt_us) February 10, 2019
It is absolutely astounding that somebody as scientifically impaired as you is allowed out the house unsupervised let alone making decisions for the world.— Corsair Aquilus (@CorsairAquilus) February 10, 2019

1) By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried. If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful. #GreenNewDeal— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) February 7, 2019
“If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful.”
Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed. Market (D-MA), states that the new legislation aims to move the United States over to 100% renewable energy sources in the next ten years, entirely abolishing the use of fossil fuels and internal combustion engines for vehicles.
The bill says it wants to guarantee “a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States.
”According to the “frequently asked questions” sheet provided by Ocasio-Cortez’s staff to NPR, the plan will provide “[e]conomic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”
