Donald Trump just released a pair of true statements about policy . . .

only days from the election ending, Donald Trumpís campaign just released the Republican nomineeís plan to cut $100 billion dollars in federal climate change spending over eight years, presumably to pay for the ridiculous tax cuts to the rich he proposes.

In late October, Trump also announced another policy; to turn Americaís highways and byways into a for-profit business venture . . .

The Trump private roads and transportation plan was unveiled on Oct. 27th, but the full impact took a few days to be understood.

When the Republican candidate claims at rallies to want a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending, naturally voters assume that the assets would be publicly owned and free to use.
. . .
In fact, Trumpís transportation infrastructure plan would privatize most of the new construction, make it all toll driven and concentrated in wealthy areas . . .

Luckily, Bloomberg noticed something amiss and reported extensively on the pernicious Trump campaign climate change spending plan:

Donald Trump says he would save $100 billion over eight years by cutting all federal climate change spendingóa sum his campaign says would be achieved by eliminating domestic and international climate programs.
. . .
Anyone who doesnít want new taxes on driving, big giveaways to the ultra-wealthy and to end Americaís investment in a green economy had better come to grips with the sad facts of the situation

As you can see, when Donald Trump tells the truth about his plans for America, itís definitely more terrifying than his racism and lies.

2. Those climate change spending are essentially R&D investment in the future,

So, Trump wants to make the US a backwater place dependent on others for Energy and
and not having any of the tech benefits of owning the intellectual property related to those future energy technologies.

In Trump's world, things like the Internet would not occur cause you know,
telephones are such great communication tools that you don't need anything else.
He'd have cut funding to DARPA on that internet thingy and given back a monopoly
to AT&T to screw people over with poor, overpriced phone service till the end of time...
Or until Europe or China saved us by selling us this shiny new tech and making all the money from it.
