“President Trump on Monday touted his environmentalist credentials hours after skipping a Group of Seven (G-7) summit meeting focused on climate, oceans and biodiversity.
At a closing press conference before departing the summit, Trump was asked whether he still harbors skepticism about climate change. He did not directly answer, saying he is an “environmentalist” but that he is unwilling to sacrifice the country’s economic success to protect the environment.
“I’m an environmentalist. A lot of people don’t understand that,” Trump said, citing his experience filing environmental impact statements for real estate developments.
“I think I know more about the environment than most people,” he added. “I want clean air. I want clean water. I want a wealthy country. I want a spectacular country with jobs, with pensions, with so many things. And that’s what we’re getting.”
“At the same time, it’s very important to me … we have to maintain this incredible place that we’ve all built,” Trump continued. The U.S. has “become a much richer country. And that’s a good thing, not a bad thing. Because that wealth allows us to take care of people.””
