Trump’s Planned Destruction of the Environmental Protection Agency is Underway

Based on the research of 99 percent of the world’s climatologists, climate change is the most serious danger facing the future of our planet. It’s not a ‘hoax created by the Chinese,’ it is very real. Possibly the most important agency in our government is the Environmental Protection Agency. Regulations levied by the agency prevent the greatest polluters from causing serious damage to our water, air, and land. So who did Trump nominate to head the agency under his administration? A man who has sought to destroy it for years.

Scott Pruitt is the attorney general of Oklahoma. Oklahoma has nothing to offer the world with the exception of producing oil and gas. Pruitt has sued the EPA for most of his time in office. So, it is logical that Trump would select him as the agency’s new director. Really?

Donald Trump is either stupid, or his entire purpose for seeking the presidency was an effort to destroy the United States of America. His controversial choices for his circle of sinners have everyone who understands government and has concerns for the future of our nation scratching their heads. But the truth is that it is normal for human beings to surround themselves with like-minded individuals. His circle of sinners have no experience, and no knowledge regarding the daily workings of our government. He has selected white supremacists; men and women who suffer from Islamophobia, and homophobia. These individuals believe that women serve but a single purpose; and their only god is money.

These facts prove that Trump is simply selecting others like himself; the least qualified men and women in the history of our nation.

Trump made the following statement regarding his nomination of Pruitt.

For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn,” the release quoted Trump as saying. He said Pruitt “will reverse this trend and restore the EPA’s essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe.” Trump added, “My administration “strongly believes in environmental protection, and Scott Pruitt will be a powerful advocate for that mission while promoting jobs, safety and opportunity.”

There is so much misdirection and so many lies in that statement, I’ll just let the reader try to make sense of it. During his campaign, Trump told his supporters that he would dismantle the EPA, Department of Education, and others which he claimed cost our nation jobs and wasted money. He obviously ignores the facts, or is simply too ignorant to understand them.

I hope you’re proud if you wasted your vote on Trump. He hasn’t taken the oath of office, and has already made mistakes too numerous to count. He will destroy democracy, and place our nation at the bottom of the list relating to the quality of life for its people.

Lies eventually come into the light. For example; Trump’s claim that he saved jobs in Indiana by preventing Carrier from moving to Mexico is not a fact. We know the truth; and it isn’t pretty. Trump promised his supporters that he would not give money to companies who planned to move away from our shores; including tax incentives. But he did order Mike Pence to give millions of dollars of Indiana’s taxpayer dollars to the air conditioning company. Now union representatives are claiming that the whole situation is a farce. This is what we can expect from Trump and his circle of sinners for the remainder of his presidency.

Please re-post and expose this man who is unfit to be president.
