Kamala Harris accuses ‘People’s Convoy’ truckers of pollution over DC protest

Vice President Kamala Harris criticized a group of truckers who arrived this week in Washington, D.C., for a “People’s Convoy” for causing additional pollution in the nation’s capital.

“Pollution from heavy-duty trucks and buses has made the air poisonous to breathe and this pollution is also, of course, accelerating the climate crises,” Harris said during a speech near the White House on Monday, according to Breitbart News.

“Threatening the future not just of our communities, but of the entire world,” she added.

Harris used the speech to emphasize a new rule on Monday by the Environmental Protection Agency that plans to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions from large trucks by up to 90% by 2031.

“Imagine a future: The freight trucks that deliver bread and milk to our grocery store shelves and the buses that take children to school and parents to work…. Imagine that they produced zero emissions,” she said.

The environment emphasis may be well-intended, but the jab against truck drivers focused on freedom was poor form.

The vice president continues to flounder in public remarks once again as the nation seeks leadership during the crises of the Biden administration.
