Jay Inslee: Trump's climate change denial makes him a 'clear and present danger' who must

be 'removed from office'

Washington governor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Jay Inslee said Wednesday that President Trump represents a national security risk because of his "willful ignorance" on climate change and his failure to start protecting military bases from sea level rise.

"He presents a clear and present danger to our national security because he is not responding to the threat of our military infrastructure," Inslee told reporters after his speech at the American Council on Renewable Energy in Washington, D.C. "This isn't about the polar bears. It's about our safety. His willful ignorance on climate change is endangering us all."

Inslee said Trump must be "removed from office" for the federal government to stem the dangers of climate change, which he said could cause the mass migration of people living in vulnerable areas across the world.

"We have to understand the president has to be removed from office if climate change is going to be dealt with," he said. "By him continuing that this is a 'Chinese hoax,' he has debilitated our ability to protect Americans."

He's right. Trump is endangering all of us, our whole world is in danger.

1. Yes. Only good sense.

 

On a lighter note:

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, 2020 candidate, supports bill that could kick Trump from state's ballot in 2020 if he does not release his tax returns.

The legislation, which passed the state Senate earlier this month, would require all presidential candidates and their running mates to release their tax returns from the last five years in order to appear on the state’s ballot in any primary or general election.

The legislation still needs to pass Washington’s House of Representatives before reaching Inslee's desk, but state Sen. Patty Kuderer believes Inslee’s support will aid its passage in the lower chamber.

“I'm very happy about it,” Kuderer, a Democrat who sponsored the bill, told MSNBC on Monday. “It will make it easier to get it through the House, so it's good news.”

Republicans are concerned the measure would spark a costly legal battle. "We're on really risky ground when we're trying to place conditions on a federal election," Washington state Sen. Hans Zeiger, a Republican, told CBS News.

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson and solicitor general Noah Purcell said they believe the proposal is legal, but they warned lawmakers it "would definitely be challenged in court."


Yes, but I like it anyway. I'm clicking on Senator Warren right now to indicate support, but Gov. Inslee's also definitely on my list of people I want to see on the debate stages.
