Joe Biden ripped President Trump as a “climate arsonist” in a speech from Delaware on Monday as the president landed in California to see firsthand the damage caused by devastating wildfires.
The former veep laid out his $2 trillion Green New Deal agenda for America’s future being pushed by the left flank of his party — touting renewable energy jobs, electric vehicles and energy-efficient homes. He did not take questions from reporters.
“Donald Trump’s climate denial may not have caused these fires and record floods and record hurricanes, but it he gets a second term, these hellish events will continue to become more common, more devastating and more deadly,” the Democratic nominee said, standing in front of what appeared to be a field of wheat outside the Museum of Natural History.
“If we give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if more of America is ablaze?” he asked.
