Environmental and Public Health Advocates Agree: Trump is the Worst President for Our Environment in History

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – January 31, 2020 – Ahead of President Trump’s State of the Union address on February 4th, national environmental groups agree: no administration has been worse for our environment or our nation's public health than this one. The President is expected to greenwash his unprecedented assault on kids’ health and our great outdoors during his address. 

10 leading national organizations offered the following statement:

"Donald Trump’s administration has unleashed an unprecedented assault on our environment and the health of our communities. His policies threaten our climate, air, water, public lands, wildlife, and oceans; no amount of his greenwashing can change the simple fact: Donald Trump has been the worst president for our environment in history. Unfortunately, our children will pay the costs of this president’s recklessness. Our organizations have repeatedly fought back against these attacks and we will continue to fight to ensure that our kids don’t bear the brunt of the Trump administration’s anti-environmental agenda.”
