As Twitchy mentioned earlier, President Trump met with reporters Saturday to outline some of the things Democrats tried to sneak into a coronavirus relief bill, including stimulus checks for illegal aliens, the mass release of illegal aliens from detention, and the mass release of inmates.
Also in his remarks, Trump warned that electing Joe Biden would decimate the economy, and he touched on the Green New Deal, calling it “childish.” (Skip ahead to around 1:30 for that bit.) Don’t forget that not one senator — not even its co-sponsors — voted for the Green New Deal when Mitch McConnell brought it to a vote.

Trump playing to the crowd as he bashes Dems: "They want to do the green new deal. … I actually say, 'The Green New Deal is childish. It's for children. It's not for adults.'" Draws chuckles from the patrons .

Trump’s event on exec orders on coronavirus now spins off into criticism of the Green New Deal, which he calls “childish.”

Don't know about "childish" but certainly designed by idiots.

It is childish and at “his” press conference, he reserves the right to talk about anything he damn well pleases 👍🏽

The Green New Deal is purposely destructive.@realDonaldTrump was being kind to the climate alarmists.

Absolutely correct, and absolutely perfect messaging.

The best GND description in one sentence.

Can't believe he even had to say this. That something that absurd is actually being proposed. But we now live in the most clownish time in human history.
Trump is good at saying what needs to be said. He's the right candidate for this bizarre time.

It's far worse than just the projected cost and damage if they do what they claim, it's that the technology they want to rely on is not up to the challenge. Imagine changing the whole country over to it, only to find that it can't meet the needs it was supposed to.

Wonder how much of the Green New Deal will make it into the Democrat’s party platform?
