President Donald Trump has “never understood wind,” but he has studied windmills “better than anybody.”
Here’s what Trump revealed about his knowledge of windmills at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday:
“I know it is very expensive. They’re made in China and Germany mostly. Very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured. Tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes, gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amounts of fumes and everything.”
Trump described the windmills as noisy and claimed they killed birds, including many bald eagles.
“Why is it OK for these windmills to destroy the bird population?” he asked.
In the past, Trump has also claimed that the power from wind turbines cuts out when there’s no wind.
As long as I live I will never understand how people can defend this guy with a straighte face.
“I don’t understanad wind,” but he has studied windmills “better than anybody.”
Just that alone should be reason enough to start working to remove somebody from a position of power.
