US President Donald Trump looks on during the final presidential debate at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 22, 2020.
Speaking during his second and final presidential debate with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, U.S. President Donald Trump called India "filthy" and clubbed it with Russian Federation and China - both considered U.S. rivals.
"Look at China, how filthy it is".
Trump's comments on India's "filthy air" came with reference to the 2015 Paris Accord that sought to limit global temperature rise to below two degrees centigrade. Today he dismisses India, by calling it "filthy".
Trump charged that Biden's climate plan was an "economic disaster" for oil states such as Texas and Oklahoma. Biden and the Democrats, in contrast, promise to re-join the pact - they believe climate change is the single most important threat to humanity and needs to be addressed urgently. "I walked out of the Paris Accord as we had to take out trillions of dollars and we were treated very unfairly", he said during a debate with Democratic White House challenger Joe Biden.
The top four emitters in 2017, which covered 58 per cent of global emissions, were China (27 per cent), the U.S. (15 per cent), the European Union (10 per cent) and India (7 per cent), it said.
The language used on Thursday, however, was stronger than normal and comes a few days before U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary Mark Esper are scheduled to travel in New Delhi to meet their counterparts for the U.S. -India 2+2 ministerial.
