Greenpeace Is Not Having Any of Trump's Bulls***

Environmental activists had one message in response to the presidency of Donald Trump. 

President Donald Trump (okay, still leaving a bad taste in my mouth) is quickly letting everyone know there's a new sheriff in town--and he's the worst.

Amid Trump's executive order signing spree that threatens to derail climate change efforts and plunge America further into debt by building a stupid wall that Mexico is so not repaying us for, Greenpeace took a stand. Or rather, a climb.

Wednesday morning, around 4 a.m., seven environmental activists scaled a 270-foot construction crane just blocks from The White House and unfurled a 70-foot banner that said plainly, "RESIST."

Travis Nichols, a spokesman for Greenpeace, told The New York Times the protesters were there "to resist the environmental, economic and racial injustice that Trump and his administration have already laid out and put into practice."

Nichols is most likely referring to the president's recent actions, including freezing the Environmental Protection Agency's grants and contracts, okaying the construction of the Dakota Access and Keystone Pipelines, and moving forward with plans to build a giant, racist, xenophobic wall along America's border with Mexico.

In a statement, Greenpeace called on all those who oppose Trump's doomsday agenda "to contribute to a better America." Click here to find out how you can get involved.
