President Donald Trump is ripping a proposal that some Democrats have embraced to curb global warming, claiming that it would shut down American energy and air travel.

Trump says the so-called Green New Deal sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark.

Trump is speaking at a rally in El Paso, Texas. He claims the plan would cost $100 trillion, but no other country would follow suit. He says American companies would end up moving to China.

He says, “That’s the way the system works,” but adds, “Don’t worry, it’s not going to happen.”

The nonbinding resolution outlined ambitious plans to cut all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero over 10 years while instituting massive investments in wind and solar production, energy-efficient buildings and high-speed rail.
