US President, who is known to be a good friend of PM Modi, continued to blame India, China, and Russia for contributing to global pollution and not acting responsibly on climate change.
New Delhi: While defending his decision to pull out of the Paris Accord, US Prez Donald Trump once again shifts blame on countries like India, China, and Russia for not doing enough on the issue of climate change.
“Look at China, how filthy it is. Look at Russia, look at India — the air is filthy,” said Trump in the final section of the debate with the Democrat nominee Joe Biden.
“I walked out of the Paris Accord as we had to take out trillions of dollars and we were treated very unfairly, added the Republican POTUS, who is seeking a second term in the office. Earlier during the first debate on 29 September, he had given a similar statement that says China, Russia as well as India send dirt into the environment.
The issue of climate change remained the highlight of the second and final presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee. Trump claimed that the United States ranks lowest in the list of carbon-emitting countries.
While Donald Trump has constantly been bad-mouthing India for its poor environmental records, Joe Biden is not known to have made any remarks on India.
The US Election
The United States of America is scheduled to go to polls on 3 November. The country will choose its next president between Donald Trump and former VP Joe Biden — two main contenders of the office of POTUS. Apart from climate change, the ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign and US-China trade war will be at the forefront of election issues.
