A President and a National Energy Policy gone awry

Trump sees environmental issues as an obstacle to making a profitT. He is rolling back efforts to curb CO2 and methane releases while making it easier for coal companies to dump their waste into streams and car makers to avoid building engines that get better gas mileage.

Trump’s agenda, though, won’t be easy to carry out. For starters, the Republican Party, if it has any hope of expanding its base, it will have to recruit younger voters who care about clean air and water.

Trump Tells Congresswomen to ‘Go Back’ to the Countries They Came From

President Trump said on Sunday that a group of four minority congresswomen feuding with Speaker Nancy Pelosi should “go back” to the countries they came from rather than “loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States” how to run the government.

Fundstrat head analyst Thomas Lee responds to Trumps twitter on Bitcoin

These safety concerns come as a result of the explosions of the Japanese and the Norwegian tankers in the Gulf of Oman earlier this month, followed by the US drone that was shot down last week.
