WASHINGTON (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 24th October, 2019) Fracking companies view US President Donald Trump as a savior because he is willing to prioritize the industry's policies over the planet's survival, the environmental advocacy group food and Water Watch warned in a press release.
Earlier in the day, Trump delivered an address at the so-called Shale Insight conference in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The US president in a tweet after the event called the audience of oil company representatives "patriots" because they fuel factories and power industries with true American pride.
"Donald Trump is speaking to his base today - the fracking companies whose profits he has put above the health and safety of the planet," Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter said on Wednesday. "This polluting industry sees Trump as its savior, along with an administration that rejects science and cheers on climate destruction."
