‘Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger attacked President Trump on Saturday over climate change and increasing polarization. As Breitbart reports:
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger blasted President Donald Trump while presenting his film The Burnt Orange Heresy at the Venice Film Festival Saturday, accusing him of wiping out environmental controls and feeding into polarization across the board.
The “Paint It Black” singer told the crowd that the U.S. is shirking its duty in leading the environmental movement across the globe and placed the blame squarely on the Trump administration.
“We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the U.S., where all the environmental controls that were put in place — that were just about adequate — have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,” the 76-year-old rocker said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The U.S. should be the world leader in environmental control but now it has decided to go the other way,” Mick Jagger continued, adding that he is “absolutely behind” the recent efforts of climate change activists.
Jagger also spoke out against “political incivilty” throughout the world.
