Sanders on climate change
In addition, Sanders said it was important to focus on the issue of climate change, and he challenged Trump’s position.
“We have a president who thinks that climate change is a hoax,” Sanders said. “Well, I happen to believe that Donald Trump is a hoax. I think we need a president who actually believes in science.”
Sanders said climate change is “very, very real,” and we can see its impacts “right in front of our eyes” all over the world. He referred to the flooding that is taking place in Texas right now as an example, as well as the catastrophic damage to the Bahamas from Hurricane Dorian.
“Instead of spending a trillion and a half dollars on weapons of destruction, designed to kill each other, how about pooling our resources and combating our common enemy, which is climate change,” Sanders said.
