President Trump today touting the successes of his administration's efforts to promote a healthy environment arguing interestingly that he says a robust economy and clean energy are not mutually exclusive. Watch this. For years, politicians told Americans that a strong economy and a vibrant energy sector were incompatible with a healthy environment. A strong economy is vital to maintaining a healthy environment. We're unlocking American energy and the United States is now a net exporter of clean affordable American natural gas. We're exporting all over the world. Here now in a STORY exclusive tonight Energy Secretary Rick Perry. Secretary, good to see you tonight. Thank you for being with us. Thank you, Martha. You know, I mean, the fact that the President was even giving a speech on the environment raised a lot of eyebrows and had you know, sort of critics going really. We don't think this is really a priority for this administration. What do you say? Well, I'm always amazed that people would say that. This president does care about the environment and he's doing something about it. When you think about the clean energy that America is delivering around the world whether it's in the form of liquefied natural gas or whether it's in our renewable technologies, whether it's in our nuclear energy technologies that are going around the world, we're displacing literally tons and tons of old dirty burning gas emissions and coal emissions in Europe and replacing them with clean-burning natural gas. So the president has got a great story to tell not to mention the jobs that get created and the wealth and the quality of life that comes with that.




So I don't - I don't find it hard at all that President Trump is talking about the environment, talking about the economy in the same breath. Well, he definitely has a different approach. You know, I think that the EPA under President Obama was criticized by businesses in America for being too aggressive in terms of increasing regulations that businesses felt were you know, unfair in many cases, and you all have worked to roll those back. You know, the EPA isn't even an agency that we hear a lot about in the Trump presidency. We don't - you know we haven't heard from you a lot on this front in that. Why is that? Well, I don't know why you haven't heard from me a lot. I travel internationally a substantial amount selling LNG all across the country. 36 different countries now are buying liquefied natural gas from the United States. And frankly, you know, the EPA shouldn't be heard from when I think about it. This ought to be an agency that's out there doing its work, getting rid of the regulations that are stopping businesses from getting done what they need to do, and putting practices into place that help clean up the environment.
