Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Biden Administration Considers Ousting Trump-Appointed World Bank Chief Because of His Answer to a Climate Change Question: Report”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Days after former Vice President Al Gore called upon President Joe Biden to remove David Malpass as president of the World Bank, one report says that process could be in the works.
Malpass was appointed in 2019 to a five-year term after being nominated by former President Donald Trump to lead the bank, which has as its mission supporting developing nations.
On Tuesday, Gore called Malpass a “climate denier” during a climate change event, according to The New York Times.
The Times report said Malpass called the remark “very odd” and quoted him as saying, “What we need to do is move forward with impactful projects.”
But that was not all he said, according to Reuters. Malpass was asked if he believed that burning fossil fuels was making the planet more dangerous.
