(Washington, D.C. - April 7, 2020) President Trump has appointed Kayleigh McEnany to be the new White House press secretary, responsible for providing information to the public from the highest levels of government. Unfortunately, Ms. McEnany has a history of denying the reality of climate change, as she explained in this video from the Fox Business Channel.

"In the middle of a national emergency that has been made so much worse by not listening the warnings of scientists, the new White House spokesperson is a climate change denier. How can the public rely on what we're hearing from the White House during this pandemic if the press secretary has a history of denying scientific reality? This is a serious problem."
