The Trump White House on Monday announced a settlement with several cities and states that sued President Donald Trump over the inauguration crowds he blamed on global warming.
The Trump administration said it was reaching a $1 billion settlement with cities and cities that sued over the president’s claim that global warming was causing the crowds.
The agreement includes $750 million in financial relief for cities and counties that have been impacted by the climate change phenomenon, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee, Baltimore and Washington.
The Justice Department said it will donate $750,000 to the Climate Action Network, a nonprofit that seeks to combat climate change through litigation.
Trump has disputed that the crowds were caused by climate change and blamed it for causing the deadly wildfires in California, New York and elsewhere.
