President Trump slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” and called Mayor de Blasio’s plan to ban glass skyscrapers “crazy,” in an interview on Fox News Thursday night.
Responding to a question from Sean Hannity, Trump first attacked a proposal by de Blasio to would introduce a local bill to forbid new glass-fronted skyscrapers in the city because of their environmental effects.
“I just heard about this crazy deal in New York City, where they want to build concrete buildings with little tiny windows,” he said. “I built a lot of buildings, Sean. I can tell you, the bigger the windows, the better I did with it. People want big windows.”
Trump then moved onto an attack on Ocasio-Cortez, saying he’s amazed at the support she’s gotten from more senior Democrats.
“It’s amazing to see. They’re fawning behind her. She’s talking about the deal. I don’t know if they’re kidding. I don’t know if they’re desperate for votes or I don’t know if they’re incompetent,” Trump said.
“But they’re sitting behind her and they’re acting like they actually agree,” he added.
Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal seeks to totally eliminate carbon emissions in the U.S.
