WHITEHOUSE: "Let me add a word about climate change which is a matter of grave concern to me and to Rhode Island, our ocean state. Climate change presents readily discernible truths on one side and a massive polluting industry that wants to deny them on the other side. Senator Sessions has persistently refused to discern those readily discernible truths and unfailingly lined up with that massive polluting industry. As a signal about how as attorney general he would handle conflicts between truth and power, this is an ominous one. Recent events put these concerns in the particularly sharp focus."
