Twitter Shreds Donald Trump for Tweet Celebrating Earth Day While He Guts EPA

Trump tweeted:  “Today on Earth Day, we celebrate our beautiful forests, lakes and land. We stand committed to preserving the natural beauty of our nation.”

He followed that up with a second tweet nearly more than two hours later: “I am committed to keeping our air and water clean but always remember that economic growth enhances environmental protection. Jobs matter!”

Trump also issued a statement about Earth Day: “Rigorous science is critical to my Administration’s efforts.” “We can and must protect our environment without harming America’s working families.” “That is why my Administration is reducing unnecessary burdens on American workers and American companies, while being mindful that our actions must also protect the environment,” the statement reads.

Twitter clapped back fiercely. It was glorious:
