Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Joe Biden says he does not back Green New Deal during presidential debate


TRUMP: Chris, so why didn't he do it for 47 years? You were vice president. Why didn't you get the world- China sends up real dirt into the air. Russia does. India does. They all do. We're supposed to be good. And by the way, he made a couple of statements, the Green New Deal is 100 trillion dollar plan --
BIDEN: That is not my plan. The Green New Deal is not my plan.
WALLACE: Gentlemen, gentleman --
TRUMP: You said I said something about the military. He and his friends made it up, and then they went with it. I never said it. What he did is he said- He called the military stupid bastards
WALLACE: Mr. Vice President, Mr. Vice President -- Please, stop.
TRUMP: I would never say that.
WALLACE: Mr. Vice President answer his question his final question.
BIDEN: The final question is I can't remember which of all is real.

WALLACE: I'm having a little trouble myself. But about the economy, and about this question of what it's going to cost. The Green New Deal and the idea of what, what your environmental changes to --
BIDEN: The Green New Deal will pay for itself as we move forward. You're not going to build plants that in fact are great polluting plans.
WALLACE: Do you support the Green New Deal?
BIDEN: Pardon me?
WALLACE: Do you support the Green New Deal?
BIDEN: No, I don't support the Green New Deal.

I used to bemoan the loss of #CreepyUncleJoe, but all things considered #SleepyJoe is less creepy and much more entertaining!
