While the impeachment trial takes place a world away, President Trump continues to fire off false claims at the World Economic Forum in Davos. This time he managed to take a shot at climate activist Greta Thunberg, arguing that America ‘has cleanest water and air in the world’ and that Thunberg should ‘focus on other countries.’
‘We want to have the cleanest water on earth, we want to have the cleanest air on earth,’ Trump boasted. ‘Our numbers, as you saw, we had record numbers come out very recently. Our numbers are very, very good. Our environmental numbers, our water numbers, our numbers on-air are tremendous.’
‘We have to do something about other continents, we have to do something about other countries,’ he admitted. ‘When we’re clean and beautiful and everything’s good, but you have another continent where the fumes are rising at levels that you can’t believe.’
During his rant, he was asked by a reporter what he meant when he said Thunberg needed ‘to work on her anger.’
‘I didn’t say anger, I said anger management,’ Trump stiffly corrected him.
