Joe Biden Calls Trump “A Climate Arsonist” [VIDEO]

ABC News reports:

As the devastation from the wildfires raging across the western United States continues into its second week, former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a speech Monday in Wilmington, Delaware, centered around his plans to combat the growing threat of climate change and its contributions to worsening instances of extreme weather around the globe.

“If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more of America ablaze? If you give a climate denier four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised when more of America is underwater?” Biden said in prepared remarks.

NBC News reports:

“Donald Trump warns that integration is threatening our suburbs. That’s ridiculous,” Biden said. “But you know what’s actually threatening our suburbs? Wildfires are burning the suburbs in the West. Floods are wiping out suburban neighborhoods in the Midwest. And hurricanes are imperiling suburban life along our coasts.”

“If we have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires? How many suburbs will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?” he added.

The fires across California, Washington and Oregon have also created hazardous air conditions throughout the Western United States as smoke from the devastating blazes stretches for thousands of miles.
