Trump: Thank you for coming to my TED talk

This is the President of the United States speaking. You know, the guy who says he has “the right to do whatever I want to do.” Commander in Chief of the military. Finger on the nuclear button. Yeah, that guy.

Wherever you live, call your Senator. He needs to go.

This is from the White House transcript of President Trump’s speech to the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach on Saturday, December 21, 2019.

“We’ll have an economy based on wind. I never understood wind. You know, I know windmills very much. I’ve studied it better than anybody I know. It’s very expensive. They’re made in China and Germany mostly — very few made here, almost none. But they’re manufactured tremendous — if you’re into this — tremendous fumes. Gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint — fumes are spewing into the air. Right? Spewing. Whether it’s in China, Germany, it’s going into the air. It’s our air, their air, everything — right?”
