Trump to hail US leadership on environmental issues

Under Trump’s presidency, more than 80 environmental rules and regulations have been repealed, withdrawn, or weakened.

President Donald Trump is expected to claim the United States is “leading the world” on environmental issues in a speech on Monday.

But statistics from the US Environmental Protection Agency show that over the last two years, pollution in the country has increased.
