350.org on President Trump’s withdrawal from Trans-Pacific Partnership

Washington, DC — In response to President Donald Trump’s executive order withdrawing the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Lindsay Meiman 350.org US Communications Coordinator said:

“The climate movement successfully changed the conversation around the TPP being a hand-out to Big Oil and a disaster for workers. The irony of Trump’s opposition to the TPP is that his policies are much worse, stuck in the past and attempting to squeeze every last dollar out of the flailing fossil fuel industry at the expense of people and planet. The best way to create jobs is still with a clean energy revolution that saves our climate.”
