Jerry Brown: Trump Does Not Speak for America

July 8, 2017

Raw Story:

Speaking to over 12,000 environmental activists in Hamburg, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) announced plans for a global environmental summit in San Francisco next year, telling the crowd that President Donald Trump “doesn’t speak” for America.

According to the LA Times, Brown spoke at the Global Citizen Festival Hamburg while Trump was in Poland on Thursday, prior to the G-20 Summit.

Noting Trump’s plans to withdraw from the Paris environmental accords, the California governor lashed out at the president, saying his state will take the lead in fighting climate change.

“It’s hard to grasp the mortal danger that climate change represents,” Brown explained. “I believe that California, New York, France and Germany and the other countries — we have to get our act together, strengthen our commitment and bring as many nations along as we can.”

In a video posted to YouTube, Brown took on Trump and said he does not speak for and reflect the desires on almost 70 percent of Americans who want the government to be more “aggressive” in taking on climate change — not roll back protections.

“It’s up to you and it’s up to me and tens of millions of other people to get it together to roll back the forces of carbonization and join together to combat the existential threat of climate change,” Brown stated. “Yes, I know President Trump is trying to get out of the Paris agreement, but he doesn’t speak for the rest of America. We in California and in states all across America believe it’s time to act, it’s time to join together and that’s why at this climate action summit we’re going to get it done.”

Governor Brown is one of many who, in the absence of courageous leadership at the top of the Free World, has taken up the mantle, and the gauntlet in defense of truth. See clip from his State of the State a few months ago.

    Can’t wait to see how this clustersham plays out for California.

    Neither can over 70% of Americans.
    Trump is weak and is becoming more and more irrelevant to the rest of the world.
    He needs to just get out of the way while the grown ups clean up his mess.

    Burnie or bust…

    Moonbeam is a real fraud. He asked the department of oil and gas to do a private survey on his ranch of its oil and gas potential. His idea of transportation in 111 billion train to nowhere that carefully avoids going to anyplace with a large population like say LA to SF. That is because all the nuts who vote for moonbeam live in those places and they do not want some lousy loud train going past their views.

    Moonbeam and his fellow leftists need money to buy votes so they came up with cap and trade. All the money raised is spent on buying votes not doing anything about CO2 as they know CO2 is not actually warming the planet to any significant degree. Moonbeam is busy wheeling and dealing with foreign government about CO2 which is violating the logan act. However, law does not apply to him since he is a democrat and laws simply do not apply to democrats like Hillary, Obama or in this case Moonbeam.

    If you really want a progressive state, elect Moonbeam and watch you quality of life go straight down. Eat insects and walk, that will be good for you. Do not worry about drinking water, your schools, you job, your electricity bill and gas bill, none of that is important and you cannot afford any of that anyway thanks to Moonbean. And equally important, just buy a tent as California homes are unaffordable to 90 percent of Californians anyway.

      Amazing how expensive those houses are considering they have no drinking water, quality of life, no quality schools; high gas and electric bills, proximity to violations of the “logan” act, and super-loud trains to nowhere!

      Do you actually read what you write?

      Do you have any clue how ridiculous you sound?

      Do you really think anyone here has any interest in anything you have to say? You have less than zero credibility, Bates. Any normal functioning human being would be mortified to be beheld in the contempt with which we hold you. WTF is wrong with you?!?
