Washington, D.C. –In response to the second presidential debate, LCV National Campaigns Director Clay Schroers issued the following statement:

“Let’s be clear: Donald Trump clearly does not understand American energy policy or environmental protection at all. When asked about energy, he spewed Big Polluters’ fact-free talking points and doubled-down on a dirty, outdated energy plan. Hillary not only recognized the critical importance of meeting the challenge of climate change head-on, but also laid out a comprehensive plan focused on clean energy jobs – and transitioning coal communities to the renewable energy economy. On substance, temperament, and knowledge, Hillary Clinton demonstrated she is ready for the presidency on day one – while Trump never will be.”
