Dow Chemical is paying our president to let them sprinkle their deadly pesticides across your kid’s playground! Remember Trump’s campaign slogan, how he was going to ‘drain the swamps’? Remember all of his star struck supporters reasoning how Trump was so wealthy, ‘I reckon, he don’t need to be greedy and corrupt’? Apparently, Trump’s corruption has soared to mortifying levels. Most noteworthy, when your kid is born with a defective brain, don’t blame Trump, don’t blame Dow Chemical, blame those stupid Trumpkins that actually voted for this!
Dow Chemical has been handing Donald Trump money, to get rid of the findings of a group of scientists. These findings pinpoint some pesticides made by Dow, as being so fatal to have caused 1,800 species to become extinct or endangered.
Dow Chemical made their requests through letters, dated April 13. Associated Press obtained the letters. According to the AP, this pesticide was “originally derived from a nerve gas developed by Nazi Germany.” VanityFair article
Dow Chemical and Trump’s White House have a great relationship. Dow Chemical Chairman and CEO Andrew Liveris is actually a close adviser to Donald Trump.
As a result, Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency decided to reverse Obama’s actions to limit the use of chlorpyrifos pesticide on the food your kid eats. Studies prove, even the smallest exposure can stunt the growth of a babies brain. LA Times article
A spokesman for Trump’s EPA, only seemed to reiterate the Environmental Protection Agency’s allegiance with big business. Consequently, Dow Chemicals and the White House are bed buddies.
“We have had no meetings with Dow on this topic and we are reviewing petitions as they come in, giving careful consideration to sound science and good policy-making,” said J.P. Freire, EPA’s associate administrator for public affairs. “The administrator is committed to listening to stakeholders affected by EPA’s regulations, while also reviewing past decisions.” LA Times article
Efforts to stunt the spread of pesticide diazinon, goes as far back as the Bush presidency. In 2005, Bush was presented with irrefutable evidence that diazinon damaged children’s brains. As a result, he banned the harmful pesticide.
Essentially, a president’s job is to protect the people, not willfully poison them, as Trump is doing. After previous presidents banned these harmful chemicals, President Trump is allowing them to flow in our rivers and blow in our wind. Oh yeah, the president is also great friends with the president of Dow Chemicals.
