Washington, DC – The day after his trip to Flint, today Donald Trump gave a speech on the economy in which he vowed to kill major environmental safeguards, including the Clean Power Plan, the Clean Water Rule, and new ozone regulations. In response, LCV National Campaigns Director Clay Schroers issued the following statement:

“Today Donald Trump doubled-down on his plans to put polluter profits ahead of public health. By outlining an economic plan with a centerpiece of killing vitally important programs for protecting clean air and clean water, a Trump presidency would put our families’ health at risk. Once again he has displayed that he lacks the judgment needed to be president by completely ignoring the costs to people who have to worry about making sure their families can breathe easily and drink clean water.”
