Former President Barack Obama will go down as the “climate-change president” — he used every outlet he could in order to force that narrative down the throats of the American people.
However, President Donald Trump just uprooted one of Obama’s last, desperate attempts at securing his climate change legacy.
On Friday, Trump signed an executive order completely reversing Obama’s “permanent” ban on Arctic drilling.
The Daily Caller reports:
POTUS thanked Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross for their hard work in “opening up” the Arctic once again.
He also took a shot at the media.
“I’m very proud of the people standing behind me,” the president continued. “I’m far less proud of the people standing in front of me,”
“The media!” he added while pointing out the in-town press pool and drawing laughs from the room.
“I have to tell you, this is a very important day, and I want to congratulate Wilbur, and Ryan and all the people who worked so hard to get this together so quickly,” Trump stated. “It’s going to lead to a lot of great wealth for our country and a lot of great jobs.”
“God bless America.”
