If the Green New Deal is not Biden plan, what is? Last night the Democratic nominee distanced himself from U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez multi trillion dollar Green New deal telling America “The Green New Deal is not my plan,” Biden was responding to an assertion from President Trump during Tuesday night’s first presidential debate in Cleveland, referring to Ocasio-Cortez’s package of proposals for transforming energy production and consumption in the U.S.
“No, I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden insisted. “I support the Biden plan I put forward, which is different…”
AOC responded on Twitter “Our differences are exactly why I joined Biden’s Climate Unity Task Force – so we could set aside our differences & figure out an aggressive climate plan to address the planetary crisis at our feet” after Kellyane Conway who recently resigned as White House counselor tweeted part of Biden’s remarks.
