In a Friday appearance on MSNBC’s “For the Record” with host Greta Van Susteren, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson claimed that President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement “cemented Trump’s position as perhaps the worst and most dangerous president in U.S. history.” Branson also asserted that “It’s dragged America to a new, very shameful low.”
“We all love America and we all want America to succeed and for this to happen it makes, I think, many of us want to cry,” Branson said.
Branson, who is very close with Barack Obama, claimed that some on Trump’s “business cabinet” felt that the president’s decision was “disappointing, disgusting, disastrous.”
“It’s just too sad for words,” Branson contended. “There are occasions in life where you need the president of America to be morally responsible, not morally irresponsible, and that’s what he has done on this occasion.”
Branson’s take on the Paris agreement and criticism of President Trump ruffled the feathers of our own Dennis Michael Lynch. DML said on Friday, “This guy rips Trump for pulling out of the Paris agreement and yet Branson — the mega billionaire — pollutes the planet every day with the jet fuel that burns from his fleet of airplanes. Typical liberal BS. He complains about issues that he creates and ultimately lines his pockets in the process.”
