President Joe Biden has adopted many left-wing talking points during his first months in office. From more lax border policies to increased taxes on the rich, he’s ticking lots of liberal boxes.
This includes the climate change issue, which has once again taken a front-row seat in Washington. In fact, the Joint Chief of Staff Chairman allegedly called it one of America’s “greatest threats.”
Well, former President Donald Trump had something to say about that.
Biden was giving a speech to U.S. troops, and he said that during a visit to the Pentagon with then-President Barack Obama, the Joint Chief of Staff Chairman cited global warming as a huge problem:
You know, when I went over in the Tank in the Pentagon, when I first was elected Vice President, with President Obama, the military sat us down to let us know what the greatest threats facing America were — the greatest physical threats.
And this is not a joke: You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest threat facing America was? Global warming.
Because there’ll be significant population movements, fights over land, millions of people leaving places because they’re literally sinking below the sea in Indonesia; because of the fights over what is arable land anymore.
At the time, Biden was referring to Joint Chief of Staff chairman Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, who served in that role between 2007 and 2011.
But Trump says it’s a ridiculous enough comment to warrant total dismissal (via Breitbart):
Biden just said that he was told by the Joint Chiefs of Staff that Climate Change is our greatest threat.
If that is the case, and they actually said this, he ought to immediately fire the Joint Chiefs of Staff for being incompetent!
The impact and severity of global warming and climate change remains up for some debate. Some experts claim it’s a serious problem, while others say a lot of it is nothing more than political theater.
Republicans have accused Democrats of using this political theater to garner more votes in the past, too.
But regardless of the issue, one thing is clear: Donald Trump is always going to say exactly what he thinks. That hasn’t changed since leaving office in January.
His supporters say this is a good thing, primarily because they loved having a President that didn’t let people get away with much, and wasn’t afraid to call out high-ranking individuals.
It’s unlikely Biden will fire anyone over this. Even so, Trump made his voice heard — and for many of his fans, that’s enough of a statement.
- President Biden says the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff once said “global warming” was the biggest threat America faces.
- Former President Donald Trump called this out, demanding Biden fire the chairman “for being incompetent.”
- The climate change controversy continues to rage. Republicans claim much of it is political manipulation by Democrats to gather votes.
