News flash: President Trump is a threat to the environment!
That fact has been established by multiple experts, from Michael Brune of the Sierra Club:
To Bill Nye The Science Guy:
Today, actor Robert De Niro added his voice to the conversation, citing comments from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Scott Pruitt that denied global warming was harmful to humans.
De Niro told an audience at Dubai's World Government Summit:
I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don’t like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity.
De Niro was personally invited to the World Government Summit by Thani Al Zeyoudi, the Minister of Climate Change And Environment for the United Arab Emirates. De Niro also traveled to Dubai back in October 2016 to promote tourism in Antigua and Barbuda.
During that trip, De Niro said he would like to "punch [current US President Donald Trump] in the face."
I'm glad to welcome my friend Robert De Niro to #Dubai next week as part of the Climate Change Forum during @WorldGovSummit. Interesting discussions coming up on the impacts of #ClimateChange on Human Prosperity #ItAffectsYou pic.twitter.com/bPrA0ZyxUB— د. ثاني الزيودي (@ThaniAlZeyoudi) February 6, 2018
De Niro referred to Trump as a "dangerous leader," a feeling many people share.
We can only hope that the insanity that makes our country all bass-ackward lately is just temporary. I really, REALLY don’t want Trumpism to be the norm for decades to come.— James Campbell (@TrashJack) February 11, 2018
When it comes to President Trump Mr. De Niro is my kind of fellow.— John Osso (@JohnOsso) February 11, 2018
De Niro remains optimistic that the U.S. will be "cured" of its "temporary insanity" once Trump is out of office.
Still, anxiety remains that the problem runs much deeper than this particularly awful President:
That "temporary insanity" has been going on for about 100 years.— just alan (@anythingbutdem) February 11, 2018
