CNN’s Brinkley: ‘Donald Trump Is Basically Warring with His Own White House over Climate Change’

‘People that work in the White House, lawyers, staffers, they realize that scientific documentation is there, that climate change is real’

EXCERPT:

BRINKLEY: “Absolutely. I mean, it’s very odd going on here. Donald Trump is basically warring with his own White House over climate change. People that work in the White House, lawyers, staffers, they realize that scientific documentation is there, that climate change is real. They have careers. They don’t want to go on the side of being a denier and putting out fake history and doing the ostrich routine like Donald Trump is doing so they deviated from each other and they kind of snuck this report in. It’s not a midnight report, it’s sort of a Thanksgiving time release. Everybody is eating turkey and watching football. Then they brought this cataclysmic report out there that talks about total geographical dislocation in the United States, floods in the Midwest continue, wildfires in California and the far west, increased cyclonic and hurricane activity. It's a Domesday report, and yet, here the President of the United States won't address the American people on it because he's beholden to the oil and gas industry.”
