South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg Endorses Green New Deal

‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’

The Democratic Queens representative's Green New Deal promises to help curb climate change by cutting carbon emissions while also stimulating the economy with new jobs.

The document introduced last week marked the first formal attempt by lawmakers to define legislation to create big government-led investments in clean energy, infrastructure and social programs.

Wanting to know if the same people who support the New Green Deal would still support it after hearing what was actually in it, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips headed to the University of Miami to find out. The initiative has the backing of nearly all the Democrats declared as candidates seeking for the party's nomination in the 2020 presidential election.

Calling climate change "a national emergency", Buttigieg said the concept matched "a sense of urgency about that problem of climate change with a sense of opportunity around what the solutions might represent".

Republicans have used the Green New Deal to paint the rival party as shifting to the left and embracing extreme policies.

Lastly, she also added that in order for the Green New Deal to succeed, the Federal Reserve would have to step in and back the giant economic overhaul- primarily by printing new bills which would most likely push the financial body beyond its 2% inflation target.

Songstress Alicia Keys , a 15-time Grammy victor , is set to host Sunday´s ceremony - the first woman to do so in 14 years. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.

Buttigieg said it is the "right beginning" and that he is supportive of the measure.

"No serious candidate has ever put forward something as dramatic as this and as damaging as this in recent years".

President Trump blasted Rep. Earlier in his speech, he'd suggested the deal would mean "you're not allowed to own cows anymore".

Ocasio-Cortez has garnered such attention by mastering Twitter, while at the same time acting as a magnet in the digital and cable news ecosystem by sucking an entire news cycle in around her, which amplifies her media presence, according to Axios.

However, after walking through the contents of the Green New Deal, their tune quickly shifted.
