Trump’s views on California drought are just nonsensical: many believe
California suffered one of its worst droughts during the recent years, and the brunt of the state’s strict water use policies was felt by almost every household and business. Still, Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump believes that the water problem is a hoax.
Addressing a big gathering of supporters in Fresno, Calif., last Friday, Trump argued that no water problem or dry spell exists in the region. He also called climate change a hoax.
At the campaign event, Trump said, “We’re going to solve your water problem. You have a water problem that is so insane. It is so ridiculous where they’re taking the water and shoving it out to sea.”
He stressed that he would redirect water to farmers in Central Valley without giving too much importance to endangered fish. Before ending his speech, he asked locals not to “even think” about it.
His comments were promptly criticized by his political rivals like Bernie Sanders as well as many environmentalists and climate change experts. Mocking the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, Sanders said he might know more than all Californians and scientists.
An article published by USA Today also condemned Trump’s views, pointed out that his those last five words towards the end of his speech - don’t even think about it – represented an imperative request because when people think about it his rhetoric starts to sound like utter nonsense.
