Nancy Pelosi dusted off the race card to attack President Trump for pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord. This is the old stand-by line of attack for Democrats.
She’s got nothing else.
The Washington Times reports:
Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that President Trump was “dishonoring” God and questioned whether his grandchildren will even be able to breathe air after his announcement a day earlier that he would withdraw from the Paris climate accord.
“How is he ever going to explain to his grandchildren what he did to the air they breathe — assuming they breathe air,” she said at her weekly press conference.
She compared the president to racist segregationists during the civil rights movement, said Mr. Trump’s decision was yet another reason he needed to release his tax returns, and said the U.S. has isolated itself from the world, joining just Syria in rejecting the Paris agreement as too onerous.
The issue is personal for Mrs. Pelosi, who as House speaker staked her majority on attempting to pass a major piece of legislation to limit U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The bill cleared her chamber but never saw action in the Senate, and analysts say the legislation’s unpopularity was a factor in Democrats losing control of the House in the 2010 election.
