Booker in Nevada


Booker, a cosponsor on the wide-ranging Democratic “Green New Deal,” also said he would look to act on climate change, including rejoining the Paris Climate Accords. Speaking to reporters after the event, he said that politicians “have to do what we can do and we must do to deal with this unfortunate situation.”

“This idea that somehow you can’t build your economy, create jobs, expand opportunities and deal with this crisis is just wrong,” Booker said. “We could deal with this crisis in a bold way and make sure that we expand our economy and create more jobs and more opportunity at the same time.”
