Donald Trump's environmental rollbacks put our health at risk.
President Trump is making our families and communities less safe. He’s making it easier for corporate polluters to spew dangerous chemicals into our air and water, ignoring scientists and experts, and making the U.S. less prepared to address climate change.

Letting corporate polluters dump chemicals into our water
Trump packed his administration to the brim with fossil fuel industry insiders and rolled back almost 100 environmental and health protections. His administration has loosened and even eliminated rules that stop corporate polluters from letting chemicals like PFAS, lead, pesticides, and other carcinogens into our water supply—which can cause health risks like cancer and brain damage in children.
Refusing to protect clean air from pollution
Trump likes to say we have the “cleanest air,” but data shows that air pollution is getting worse after years of improvement. He’s gutted environmental programs and blocked rules that protect our air from pollution, which can cause higher rates of asthma, heart, and lung disease and even cancer.
Ignoring experts and covering up evidence of climate change
Trump has denied climate change and called it a “hoax,” even though 97% of climate scientists, NASA, and the Department of Defense agree that it’s a real threat. But he’s not just ignoring experts—he’s firing scientists, removing evidence of climate change from government documents, and putting oil and gas lobbyists in charge of our environment. Meanwhile, our communities are experiencing the increasing damage of climate change, like hurricanes, flooding, and wildfires—and that’s not a hoax to us.
The 2020 election is our last, best chance to combat the climate crisis and stand up for our communities and their health. We need to elect a president who will protect people, not corporate polluters.
