Bette Midler uses Australian icon to slam Trump
March 29, 2017
The actress has made her feelings about Trump clear.
“#GreatBarrierReef is dead because of warming oceans, & #Trump rolls back climate change regulations. Short-sighted. Dim witted. PLAIN EVIL,” she wrote on her official Twitter page.
Trump announced his new energy strategy overnight, ditching former president Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which aimed to slash carbon emissions from power plants across the country to help meet the Paris climate change accord.
The new Energy Independence order aims to revive drilling and mining across America and reintroduce coal as a major source of power.
“I am taking historic steps to lift restrictions on American energy, to reverse government intrusion, and to cancel job-killing regulations,” Mr Trump said at the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters.
Midler, who was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, has been an outspoken critic of Trump since he took office. She often vents her frustrations against him on social media and pokes fun at his administration.
