MSNBC on Trump Ditching Paris Deal: Says to Minorities ‘Your Lives Don’t Matter’

‘How do you tell those folks, African-American community that’s been there since slavery times were over, that your community doesn’t matter?’

RUSH EXCERPT:

ALI: "We can definitely lessen some of the impacts that are coming, and we can also show real leadership. You know, if you look at a community like princeville, North Carolina, which had a 1,000-year flood, how do you tell those folks, African-American community that's been there since slavery times were over, that your community doesn't matter. You know, I had the opportunity to work in Katrina and Sandy and a number of the other storms that we've had to deal with, and I've seen firsthand how that impacts people's lives, how that impacts culture, how that impacts the exist inside of communities. So when you talk about removing yourself from this agreement, you are telling these communities that your lives don't matter."
MATTHEWS: "I think around the globe, just to add to what you've said, which is you look at the Sudan, you look over in Africa. You look in Somalia, places like that. All that drought leads to all that war. It leads to all that hell, all that immigration, the desperate immigration. Everything seems to be related to climate right now. Thank you, sir."
