WASHINGTON (November 8, 2016) – Businessman Donald J. Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States.
The following is a statement from Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council and the NRDC Action Fund:
“It’s time for every American who cares about a livable world – Republican and Democrat alike – to stand and defend our environment and health. If Donald Trump thinks he can launch a big polluter assault on our air, waters, wildlife and lands, we’ll build a wall of opposition to stop him. Whatever else we may have voted for on Tuesday, we haven’t turned away from generations of common sense environmental safeguards. We’re not about to turn away now.”
