WASHINGTON (September 14, 2016) – Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has vowed to gut the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is visiting Flint, Michigan, today, where residents have suffered more than two years with lead-contaminated drinking water.
The following is a statement from Rhea Suh, president of the NRDC Action Fund:
“Donald Trump’s belated show of concern for Flint rings hollow. This is a man who wants to gut the Environmental Protection Agency and roll back our bedrock public health safeguards. In a Trump regime, every community will be a potential Flint.”
The NRDC Action Fund is an affiliated but separate organization from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). As a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, the NRDC Action Fund engages in various advocacy and political activities for which the Natural Resources Defense Council, a 501(c)(3) organization, faces certain legal limitations or restrictions. News and information released by the NRDC Action Fund therefore needs to be identified as from the NRDC Action Fund.
