World News – US – Biden says Green New Deal is not his plan, but campaign website calls it « crucial framework »


Former Vice President Joe Biden proclaimed during Tuesday’s debate with President Trump that he does not support the Green New Deal, but his environmental plan on his website calls it a  » crucial framework « to fight against climate change

« The Green New Deal is not my plan, » the Democratic presidential candidate said of the broad environmental proposal presented by Progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen Ed Markey ( D-Mass)

But moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News asked if he supports the plan that calls on the United States to respect 100% renewable energy

« Oh, right? Well that’s a big statement, ”Trump interjected quickly, denouncing the plan as the end of planes and cows.

« I support the Biden plan that I have proposed, which is different from what he calls the ‘radical Green New Deal’, » said the Democratic candidate

But his campaign page offers a different message on the $ 17 trillion, 10-year « Biden Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice »

« Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for addressing the climate challenges we face. It powerfully captures two fundamental truths, which are at the heart of his plan: (1) the United States urgently needs to embrace greater ambition on an epic scale to meet the scope of this challenge, and (2) our environment and our economy are completely and totally connected, ”says the page

« I support the Green New Deal and vote for Vice President Joe Biden, » the senator said in a statement, according to Bostoncom

« Donald Trump is wrong, » Markey continued « The progressive left is with Joe Biden, and we will pass a Green New Deal »

The former vice president also said he disagreed with Sen Bernie Sanders on a « manifesto » that would lead to socialized medicine

« Joe, you agree with Bernie Sanders, who’s on the far left, on the manifesto, we call it And it gives you socialized medicine, » Trump insisted on Biden

« I’m not gonna listen to it. The point is, I beat Bernie Sanders, » Biden replied

After several minutes of back and forth and discussions on the Democratic primary elections, Trump returned to the manifesto
