Donald Trump Says Something Stupid #7: Energy

In North Dakota at an oil and gas industry conference Donald Trump spouted off a few absolutely insane gems whilst discussing his energy policy.

At the press conference before his prepared speech Donald said these things to reporters...

I am into all types of energy,

Solar is ...

very expensive

And wind is ...

killing all the eagles. You know if you shoot an eagle, kill an eagle, they want to put you in jail for five years. Yet the windmills are killing hundreds and hundreds of eagles.

Without any elaboration Trump said his energy policy would include approving the Keystone XL pipeline ensuring the American people get…

a piece of the profits.

Because...

We will make so much money from energy,

Plus...

We will make so much money we will start to pay down our $19 trillion in debt.

As for the decline in demand for coal because of market forces Tump said...

"You know, all I can do is free up the coal which I'm going to totally do."

Trump also said he would undo the...

tremendous number of rules, regulations … probably 75 percent of which are absolutely terrible.

Those remarks were just from the presser before his energy policy speech. In the main event Trump, while aided with prepared remarks on a teleprompter no less, said these things...

The Environmental Protection Agency is trying to...

impose job-killing cap and trade,” to argue that Hillary Clinton is going to “abolish the Second Amendment” (Don't know where that came from???)

Trump then said President Barack Obama..

has done everything he can to keep us dependent on others. He wants us to be dependent on others.” 


In addition, Obama has...

denied millions of Americans access to the energy wealth sitting right under our feet. This is your treasure. You, the American people, are entitled to share in the riches.

FACTThe United States is currently the largest producer of petroleum and natural gas in the world


Trump said Hillary Clinton has ...

declared war on the American worker” and would “shut down the mines.

And that...

If crooked Hillary Clinton is in charge, things will get much worse.

But with Trump as president, he said...

We’ll accomplish complete American energy independence. Complete. Complete.


In addition he would “cancel” the Paris Climate Agreement because...

Foreign bureaucrats are going to be controlling what we’re using and what we’re doing on our land and in our country. No way.

*FACT: Under the Paris agreement every country submits its own (voluntary) plan for curbing emissions.

Trump finished the conference on a high note asking the audience to...

Imagine a world in which our foes and the oil cartels can no longer use energy as a weapon. It’s going to happen if we win. We’re going to win.

 Details... Who needs details right! We're gonna WIN! The End.
