LCV Statement On Trump’s ‘Big Polluters First’ Economic Policy Speech

Aug 8, 2016

Washington, DC – In response to Donald Trump’s “Big Polluters First” Economic policy speech today, LCV National Campaigns Director Clay Schroers issued the following statement:

“For a candidate who claims to pride himself on never reading from a script, Trump sure sticks to the Big Polluters’ talking points when it comes to energy and the environment. The policies he’s espoused – ending regulations, cutting the EPA and attacking the Clean Power Plan – as well as naming billionaire oil executive Harold Hamm as one of his economic advisors, shows that Trump is happy to give away our clean air and water to Big Polluters in the oil and gas industry with no regard for the damage they will do. By offering fossil fuel special interests a blank check under his presidency, Trump has again proven he does not have the temperament, character, or judgment to be in the White House.”
