House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in her weekly news conference Friday that President Donald Trump is endangering his own grandchildren by withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord.
Pelosi said that Trump’s decision jeopardizes Americans of all generations including members of the first family because failure to address climate change put the country’s national security, economy and public health at risk.
Pelosi said, “How is he ever going to his grandchildren what he did.”
“To the air they breathe, assuming they breathe air,” she added as she paused and stared at the reporters.
Nearly a decade ago, then-House Speaker Pelosi formed a special committee to look at the threat of climate change.
Despite the huge liability to Democratic lawmakers in rural districts, Pelosi pushed for a sweeping climate bill in 2010. Months later, the Democrats lost their majority in the House and gave up 63 seats to the Republicans.
