Bumiller: Trump Left out Climate Change from National Security Document
BUMILLER: "But as we’ve said, the President has withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership which was our principle vehicle for challenging China in Asia. And we have now ceded a lot of territory to China. I also think it’s interesting in the document, there’s no mention of climate change which is completely against the Pentagon policy which sees climate change as a real national security threat around the world. Instead there’s talk about energy dominance which Trump believes in. Again, it’s very odd they came out with this so early. Usually administrations wait a couple years before they pull something like this together, and usually the President does not himself announce it. We’re told that Trump looked at the document, got very excited about it and wanted to speak about it. That’s what we have yesterday."
