LCV Statement on Donald Trump’s Threat to Cut EPA if Elected

Oct 19, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, presidential candidate and GOP front runner Donald Trump said he would cut the EPA if elected president. In response, LCV Senior Vice President of Campaign Daniel J. Weiss issued the following statement:

“Donald Trump essentially announced that he would launch an attack on public health if elected to the White House. His disdain for health and environmental safeguards would dirty our waters and foul our air, just to enrich big polluters at the expense of everyone else. Like most of the GOP field, Trump’s agenda would be a win for the Koch brothers and big oil, while burdening middle class Americans with more cancer causing and toxic pollution.”
