Donald Trump has called for a ‘total transformation’ of America’s energy economy.
The billionaire businessman made the comments in an interview with conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, who said that his vision for a new energy economy, which he has been touting for months, could have ‘the greatest impact’ on the country’s future.
“We are the greatest nation on earth.
We’re the only ones that can clean up this mess.
We have to change our energy system,” Trump said, as quoted by ABC News.
“We need to transform this country.
It’s the only way we can be the greatest country on earth.”
The US president’s views were echoed by his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, who told ABC News that America needed to shift to a more sustainable energy economy by 2023.
“It’s not going to be just a transition.
It will be a transformation.
And I think that the president will get behind that,” Priebus said.
But it was unclear if Trump’s energy transition plan would include any new clean energy investment plans.
It is understood that Trump wants to use the opportunity of a new administration to unveil his long-awaited plan for a clean energy economy that includes renewable energy and electric vehicles.
Trump’s plan for the future of America has been described by his advisers as a ‘historic’ and ‘historic opportunity’ to ‘redefine America’.
“We’re not going back to the way it was,” Priebus told ABC Radio’s This Week.
While the president has repeatedly said he is not seeking a “renewable energy revolution”, Priebus said it would be “extremely challenging” to achieve his ambitious goal.
He added that the US must be “the most energy efficient country on the planet”.
Trump has repeatedly expressed his desire to see the US move away from oil and coal as he said: “It’s an amazing waste of money.
Trump told the ABC he believed the US was “going to be the most energy-efficient country on Earth”. “
The oil and the coal industry has been there forever, but they’re not working.”
Trump told the ABC he believed the US was “going to be the most energy-efficient country on Earth”.
“I’m telling you, we’re going to win the war on climate change,” he said.
We’ll be so successful.

You’re going down the drain.”
According to the Energy Information Administration, US greenhouse gas emissions increased by 7.9 per cent in 2030 from 2020.
On Friday, Trump announced a $1 trillion plan to fight global warming, including cutting emissions and expanding offshore drilling.
Earlier this month, the president signed a bill to slash regulations that he said could cause “millions of jobs” to be lost in the US.
However, critics of the president’s plans say it is unlikely that he will be able to achieve these goals, given his record on the environment and on the economy.
