Valerie Jarrett, former senior advisor to President Obama, said the Trump administration is “abdicating” the United States’ role as the “world leader” and the “beacon of hope” by withdrawing from the Paris climate accord.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Muslim Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior advisor, does not like the fact that President Trump refuses to drink the Climate Change kool-aid by not wanting to give tens of billions of dollars to emerging nations who have no intention of stopping their levels of pollutants. She also hates the fact that Trump is canning Obamacare, calling it part of the “fabric of our nation”. Sound familiar? That’s because she and her old boss also referred to Islam as part of the “fabric of our nation“. Jarrett has moved into Obama’s new mansion in DC, where she will be calling the shots in their new shadow government.
“It is unrefuted science that there are man-made consequences that are leading to the degradation of our planet. And it was unprecedented to have so many countries, nearly 200 countries from around the world, who followed the United States’ lead on this issue and came to the table and not just the government leaders but in our country, just hundreds and hundreds of large corporations signed on recognizing that it is not anti-business to care about our climate – it is not an either/or, it is a both and an imperative,” Jarrett said during a discussion sponsored by the Raben Group in D.C. last week.
Valerie Jarrett on CNN New Day how President Trump affects the Obama legacy:
“So I think it signals to the world that the United States is not serious about protecting our planet. Now, I don’t know what other way to interpret a decision that I think could be as dramatically negatively impactful as that decision. And what it means is the rest of the world will move forward without us and the United States has always been that beacon of hope, the leader, the world leader, that’s why we’re called the world leader and we’re basically abdicating that role, so that’s disappointing to me,” she added.
Jarrett expressed frustration when reflecting on Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential election.
“I’m still pretty ticked off that 43 percent of average voters did not vote in the last election,” she said, adding that it’s time to “ask ourselves” how to “instill” a livelong passion of being “good citizens” in young people.
Obama creating a ‘shadow government?’
Jarrett said she is worried about the GOP effort to repeal and replace Obamacare and does not view the issue of healthcare as political.
“What keeps me up at night is worrying about the moms who depend on ACA for all of the preventive care and not to mention prenatal care, the wellness visits and the cost of delivery,” she said. “I mean, the Affordable Care Act is now a part of the fabric of our country and part of why I think we’re seeing the kind of response we are to taking it away, is because people are now living with the benefits and I don’t know anybody my age who doesn’t have a pre-existing condition. But there are children with pre-existing conditions as well.” source
