Republican leader says U.S. Senate will vote on Green New Deal

Several of Trump's assertions about the Green New Deal are false.

Democratic presidential hopeful Senators Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren have already thrown their support behind it.

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) addresses immigration rights activists during a rally calling for "permanent protections for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders" in front of the White House in Washington, U.S., February 12, 2019.

"Simply put, we are proud to be a green airline", she says.

Hockett said Ocasio-Cortez does not want to ban airplanes or pay people "unwilling to work".

Among the array of progressive policy aims called for under the Green New Deal are a complete shift to renewable and zero-emissions energy sources, a massive effort to revamp American infrastructure, a federal jobs guarantee and a goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.

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.

Phillips began by asking if students supported Ocasio-Cortez's plan.

Phil Smith, a spokesman for the United Mine Workers (UMWA), which represents workers in the coal industry, echoed the concerns.

"It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark", Trump said at a campaign-style rally in El Paso, Texas, referring to the legislation that was written in standard House format.

President Donald Trump's administration opposes action on climate change and favors boosting USA production of oil, gas and coal.

Many took to Twitter to call out Ocasio-Cortez and her team for attempting to lie about the document.

"I really don't like their policies of taking away your vehicle, taking away your airplane flights, of 'let's hop a train to California, ' or 'you're not allowed to own cows anymore!'" he told the crowd.

On "America's Newsroom" Tuesday, Hilton said Trump wasn't criticizing the literary merits of the proposal, but it's policies, which Hilton said would have "devastating" real-world consequences.
