President Donald Trump plans to bash the "Green New Deal" in an environmental speech on Monday in which he plans to showcase his administration's handling of climate change in a way that's economically efficient.

"[Trump] is the worst president in history for the environment", Brune said. One invitee, Florida bait and tackle shop owner Bruce Hrobak, praised what he considered the administration's efforts against water-fouling algae before pumping his fist in the air and declaring: "Trump 2020".

"A strong economy is vital to maintaining a healthy environment", he said.

"We will defend the environment but we will also defend American sovereignty, American prosperity and American jobs", the Republican president said.

A Montana-based cartoonist whose work features antisemitic and racist tropes has been disinvited from the "social media summit" being held at the White House on Thursday. "Thank you Home Depot for supporting President Trump".

He churns out social media content that has been shared by U.S. President Donald Trump and past year won a $10,000 meme contest run by Infowars, the website founded by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. "The Trump administration's record on the environment is beyond dismal and voters know it".

"I just find this completely untrue", Gross, a former director of the Energy Department's Office of International Climate and Clean Energy, told VOA. The 2008 recession also led to a sharp slowdown in economic growth and demand for electricity.

"From day one, my administration has made it a top priority to ensure that America is among the very cleanest air and cleanest water on the planet", he said on Monday in a speech at the White House, Efe news reported.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Interior Secretary David Bernhardt were among the Cabinet members in attendance.

For example, Wheeler points out, the United States has "doubled our natural gas productions since 2000 but at the same time reduced our methane emissions by 16%".

"We continue to clean up the air".

"There's been nothing that's given me any reason to believe that I should be preparing a Powerpoint or a white paper", said Ron Coleman, an attorney focused on free speech and the internet.

"It's not like the president or the administration has been subtle about their environmental agenda", said EDF Action's Bonfiglio.

He has also vowed to pull the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, an worldwide accord to fight global warming through carbon emissions cuts and a transformation of the world economy away from fossil fuels.
