Sierra Club Statement on Trump’s Joint Address to Congress

Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time Tuesday evening.

In Response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:

“Tonight, Donald Trump delivered a speech that is shockingly, but unsurprisingly, divorced from the reality of what he has done and what he plans to do. In his first month, Trump has consistently attacked the people and the places we love while promoting policies that seek to undo the fabric of our country. Every person deserves the right to live safely, enjoy religious freedoms, and breathe clean air and drink clean water. It’s past time Trump protected these rights rather than promoting policies and signing orders that undermine them.”

“Less than eight hours after gutting the Clean Water Rule and jeopardizing the drinking water for one in every three Americans, Trump claimed he cares about protecting our clean water while failing to even mention the greatest global threat we face: climate change. Let’s be clear, Trump does not care about our clean air, clean water, or a changing climate threatening American communities. Trump isn’t putting Americans first, he’s putting corporate polluters first.”
