Florida Democratic Party Statement on Trump’s Visit to Jupiter Tuesday

In response to the news that Donald Trump is visiting Jupiter on Tuesday to try and spin his destructive environmental record and distract from his failures in responding to the pandemic, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement: 

“If Donald Trump wants to talk about his record on the environment, let’s talk. For the fourth year in a row, Trump has proposed decimating funding for federal agencies that are responsible for addressing the climate crisis and preventing pollution from dirtying our air and water — issues that are fundamental to Florida’s prosperity,” said FDP chair Terrie Rizzo. “After three and a half years of Trump prioritizing corporate polluters over Florida’s public health and natural resources, the Trump campaign is trying to gaslight Florida voters who prize our environment as essential to our wellbeing, economy, and way of life. 

“Floridians won’t be fooled by a photo-op. We know that Joe Biden is the only candidate who will do more than talk about our environment — he’ll take action to protect it while creating good-paying jobs.”

Trump is coming to Florida to tout his budget proposal to fund Everglade restoration, but his proposed budget would stymie efforts to address one of the Everglades’ greatest threats: the climate crisis.
