Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says about the official Green New Deal proposal-of which he is a "proud" original co-sponsor-in a new video shared to his social media profiles on Friday.

Buttigieg announced an exploratory committee last month for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, and his remarks Sunday reflected a growing consensus among much of the prospective 2020 field in support of the "Green New Deal".

Indeed, Trump's sarcasm is cemented by his comment that eliminating "all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military - even if no other country would do the same" would be "brilliant".

The billionaire businessman and a proud climate change skeptic stopped short of traditionally branding it the "worst deal" ever, but he apparently believes spending trillions to fully transform and rebuild the USA economy would be a waste that'd undermine America's competitive advantage on the world stage. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), the proposal is not written "as specific, detailed legislation", Sanders explains.

His supporters in the meantime have been calling out the advocates of the proposal as hypocrites, who just pretend to care about climate while flying private jets, going as far as calling the Green movement "the new Red".
