In the final presidential debate ahead of the election on November 3, President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden touched on various issues, but plenty of Indians on social media reacted to a comment on the quality of India’s air.
During the debate, Trump raked up the issue of air quality in India and called it “filthy”. He was defending his government’s decision to exit the Paris Accord to curb emissions.
“Look at China, how filthy it is. Look at Russia. Look at India. The air is filthy. I walked out of the Paris Accord as we had to take out trillions of dollars and we were treated very unfairly,” he said.
Responding to Trump’s comment, Biden said climate change was a “threat to humanity” and we have a “moral obligation to deal with it.”
