“I’m an environmentalist. A lot of people don’t understand that,” Trump said, citing his experience filing environmental impact statements for real estate developments.

“I think I know more about the environment than most people,” he added. “I want clean air. I want clean water. I want a wealthy country. I want a spectacular country with jobs, with pensions, with so many things. And that’s what we’re getting.”

“At the same time, it’s very important to me … we have to maintain this incredible place that we’ve all built,” Trump continued. The U.S. has “become a much richer country. And that’s a good thing, not a bad thing. Because that wealth allows us to take care of people.”
