Mulvaney on Climate Research Cuts: ‘We Consider that To Be a Waste of Your Money’
‘The president was straightforward saying we’re not spending money on that anymore’


MULVANEY: "Again, this comes back to the President's business person view of government, which is if you took over this as a CEO and you look at this on a spreadsheet and you go, 'Why do we have all of these facilities? Why do we have seven when we can do the same job with three? Won't that save money?' The answer is yes. So the part of your answer is focusing on efficiencies and focusing on doing what we do better. As to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward saying we're not spending money on that anymore. We consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that. So that is a specific tie to his campaign."
