Washington, D.C. – Chair Raúl M. Grijalva released the following statement on President Trump’s meeting at the White House today with fossil fuel industry executives.
“The president’s choice to hold a high-profile meeting with oil and gas interests today tells the country everything it needs to know about his priorities in the middle of a crisis. He won’t be meeting with any of the millions of Americans filing for unemployment. He won’t be meeting with renewable energy workers. He’s spending his time calculating how much taxpayer money he can stuff in fossil fuel corporations’ pockets in the name of economic recovery.”
