June 5 : US President Donald Trump attacked India, China and Russia on climate change and claimed that these countries don’t have “good” air or water and they don’t fulfil their responsibilities towards world’s environment.
He said countries like India, China and Russia didn’t have a sense of pollution and cleanliness.
“China, India, Russia, many other nations, they have not very good air, not very good water, and the sense of pollution and cleanliness,” he said.
“If you go to certain cities …I am not gonna name these cities, but I can. If go to certain cities, you can’t even breathe,” he said adding,” They don’t do the responsibility.”
Trump made the remark in an interview to British channel ITV when he was asked about his meeting with UK monarch Prince Charles.
The leader, who facilitated his country’s unceremonious exit from the Paris Agreement on climate change, also claimed the United States had one of the cleanest climates in the world.
“We (He and Prince Charles) were gonna have a 15 minute chat… and it turned out to be an hour and a half…he did most of the talking. He is really into climate change,” he told the interviewer.
“I did say that the United States is among the cleanest climates there are based on all statistics and it is even getting better,” he claimed.
