President Trump spoke during a hurricane recovery briefing in Georgia. When asked about climate change, he said "there is something there." He went on to falsely claim that the U.S. has the "cleanest air on the planet." In reality, that distinction was held by Finland, according to the World Health organization. Despite his show of concern for the environment, Trump said "but that doesn't mean we have to put everyone of our businesses out of business."
