Trump calls Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a ‘LUNATIC’, CPAC Bursts in LAUGHTER
“And what I look at what’s happening on the other side, I encourage it, no I think the Green New Deal or whatever the hell they call it — the green new deal, I encourage it, I think it’s really something they should promote, they should work hard on, it’s something our country needs desperately.
“They have to go out and get it but I’ll only take the other side of that argument because I’m mandated to, I’m manda—but they should stay with that argument— never change! No planes, No energy — when the wind stops blowing, that’s the end of your electric, let’s hurry up Darling? —Darling is the wind blowing today I’d like to watch television darling!
“But perhaps nothing is more extreme than the Democrats plan to take over American energy, and completely destroy Americas’ economy through their new $100 trillion dollar Green New Deal.
“Under the Green New Deal, which someone described as a ‘high school term paper written by a poor student’, It’s true, it’s true — How would believe it? And it’s so bad, but the Green New Deal would completely abolish the American oil, gas, natural gas, coal and nuclear power industries, of which we are now the leader in the world, we’;re the biggest now in the world, their plan would remove every gas powered car from American roads. Oh that’s not so bad,” Trump sarcastically says as he reaches wide. The crowd laughs.
Watch the remarks at CPAC:
Daily Caller reported President Donald Trump took a moment to poke fun at the Green New Deal and its backers during his Saturday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
“Our country is in big trouble, folks, because we have to get it back,” Trump said. “And when I look at what is happening on the other side, I encourage it. I say, no, no, I think the New Green Deal, or whatever the hell they call it …”
The Green New Deal, favored by prominent Democratic politicians such as freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and most of the current 2020 presidential candidates, would overhaul the country’s energy and economic policy and cost trillions of dollars.
