He produced a climate change documentary titled Before the Flood that dropped in 2016. He has a foundation "dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earths inhabitants." The foundation has given $61 million to causes that align with that mission statement. He talks about climate change all the time. And, also, he was among the ~200,000 people in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to protest a White House that very much does [...]

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump hit on some of the biggest issues he has tried to tackle during his first 100 days in office at a rally Saturday in Pennsylvania, where he struck a consistently divisive and determined tone. The threat from North Korea, getting a health care bill passed and possibly renegotiating the Paris climate accord were among the big talking points of Trump's nearly one-hour speech on his 100th day as President, which he delivered to a crowd in Harrisburg. "I'll be making a big decision on the Paris accord over the next two weeks, and we will see [...]

Tapper responded: "The notion that President Trump thought the job of President of the United States of America would be easier than hosting 'Celebrity Apprentice' and running the Trump business empire is pretty stunning." Tapper then went on to name a handful of Americans who have had a difficult past few months -- many of them as a result of Trump's policies.
(CNN)From the cropless farmer to the beleaguered first responder to the person forced to evacuate their flooded home, we all have our reasons for caring about climate change. As an Indonesian-born Muslim living in California, it is my faith that compels me to protect our earth. For many people like me who cherish tolerance and clean air, the first 100 days of the Trump presidency have not been easy. As a Muslim immigrant to America, it has been painfully frustrating to witness the Trump administration reinforce xenophobia against both immigrants and Muslims. As someone whose faith is bound up with [...]
President Trump voiced confidence Friday about a new health care overhaul coming together as early as next week, declaring in an interview with Fox News Martha MacCallum that despite Republicans failure to pass a replacement in his first 100 days, ObamaCare is dead. The president gave himself high marks as he reflected on the unofficial end of that honeymoon period in office. While calling the 100 days measure artificial, he touted progress in courting China to counter the North Korean threat, confirming a Supreme Court justice and making headway on his big-ticket agenda items like health care. The president acknowledged [...]
