"Every year, China dumps millions and millions of tons of plastic and trash into the oceans, overfishes other countries’ waters, destroys vast swaths of coral reef, and emits more toxic mercury into the atmosphere than any country anywhere in the world.
China’s carbon emissions are nearly twice what the U.S. has, and it’s rising fast.
By contrast, after I withdrew from the one-sided Paris Climate Accord, last year America reduced its carbon emissions by more than any country in the agreement.
Those who attack America's exceptional environmental record while ignoring China's rampant pollution are not interested in the environment.

They only want to punish America and I will not stand for it."

President @realDonaldTrump: "Last night, at my direction, the United States military conducted a successful operation to rescue an American hostage in Nigeria, kidnapped just 96 hours earlier.
United States Special Forces executed a daring nighttime operation to rescue their fellow American with exceptional skill, precision, and bravery. No United States Service Members were harmed. The former hostage is currently in good health and has been reunited with his family.
Securing the freedom of Americans held in captivity abroad has been a top national security priority of my Administration. Since the beginning of my Administration, we have rescued over 55 hostages and detainees in more than 24 countries.

BREAKING: President @realDonaldTrump, Sudanese Chairman of the Sovereignty Council Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, and Israeli Prime Minister @netanyahu just spoke to discuss Sudan’s historic progress toward democracy and opportunities to advance peace.
After decades of living under dictatorship, the people of Sudan are finally taking charge.

The Sudanese transitional government has demonstrated its courage and commitment to combating terrorism, building its democratic institutions, and improving relations with its neighbors.
In light of this historic progress, and following President @realDonaldTrump's decision to remove Sudan from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list, the United States and Israel have agreed to partner with Sudan in its new start.

"We must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world: China."

"In the earliest days of the virus, China locked down travel domestically while allowing flights to leave China and infect the world.

China condemned my travel ban on their country, even as they cancelled domestic flights and locked citizens in their homes."
"The Chinese government and the World Health Organization—which is virtually controlled by China—falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission.

Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease."

President @realDonaldTrump: "On this very day in 1787, our Founding Fathers signed the Constitution at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. It was the fulfillment of thousands of years of Western Civilization."
"Our Constitution was the product of centuries of tradition, wisdom, and experience. No political document has done more to advance the human condition or propel the engine of progress."
"Yet as we gather this afternoon, a radical movement is attempting to demolish this treasured and precious inheritance."
