During his speech before the North Dakota Petroleum Conference, Trump spoke of an amazing wealth of energy available to a future America under a Trump administration.
The presumptive GOP Presidential nominee had earlier stated his theory that climate change is a hoax begun by the Chinese to inhibit economic development in the U.S.
He also explained his 100 day action plan, which includes:
-Rescinding all job destroying exec actions, including getting rid of climate action and water rules regulations;
-Save the coal industry;
-Ask Trans-Canada to renew its permit (with renegotiation for a “piece of the action” for U.S. residents);
-Lift moratoriums on energy in federal areas;
-Cancel the Paris climate agreement and stop all payments of tax dollars to U.N. Global Warming programs;
-Trust local residents;
-Future reg test: Is it good for American workers? …or it will not be approved;
-Public policy decision making / transparency;
-Take care of resources.
Trump said his agenda is “job creation.” He said: “There will be consequences” for companies firing American workers and moving abroad.
“You have to be wealthy to be great, I’m sorry to say,” he added.
