"Earth Day is a celebration of the abundant beauty and life-sustaining bounty of our natural environment," Trump said in a presidential message issued by the White House. "On this day, we reaffirm our responsibility to protect God’s wondrous creation for future generations."
Trump boasted in the message that the country is experiencing "historic economic and job growth" while its air and water quality "ranks among the highest in the world." He touted his administration's conservation efforts and initiatives to improve water infrastructure.
"Environmental protection and economic prosperity go hand in hand," Trump added. "A strong market economy is essential to protecting our critical natural resources and fostering a legacy of conservation."
While Trump has regularly touted his administration's efforts to ensure clean air and drinking water, the president has overseen the rollback of several Obama-era environmental regulations and has repeatedly cast doubt on the existence and impacts of climate change.
