Former Vice President Al Gore on Wednesday reiterated his call that President TrumpDonald TrumpJulian Castro knocks Biden administration over refugee policy Overnight Energy & Environment — League of Conservation Voters — Climate summit chief says US needs to 'show progress' on environment Five takeaways from Arizona's audit results MORE should resign.
“My only message would be resign,” Gore, an environmental activist, told Fox 11 Los Angeles during an interview about climate change. Gore's remarks came in response to a question about what he would say to the president.
“I think everyone knows to discount what this current administration is doing and saying. They’ve made the EPA the CPA — the Coal Production Agency — instead of protecting the environment," he said, referring to the Environmental Protection Agency.
The comments come a little more than a year after Gore told LADbible that, if he could give Trump one piece of advice, he would tell him to resign.
Gore also said last year that Trump’s attitude toward climate change had sparked an unprecedented wave of pro-climate activism.
"What we are seeing in the United States of America today is the biggest upsurge of activism in favor of the climate that we have ever experienced. And it’s in reaction to what President Trump has said," he said during a taping of a SiriusXM/Variety Magazine town hall interview. "And we are seeing the same thing around the world — the other countries have doubled down on their commitment.”
Trump has sparked fierce criticism from Gore and other environmental activists, including actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), over a raft of Obama-era environmental policy rollbacks. Trump also drew backlash last year for pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement.
