Trump Revokes CA Waiver for Higher Auto Emissions Standards.

President Donald Trump announced the move in a series of tweets.

.

The Trump Administration is revoking California's Federal Waiver on emissions in order to produce far less expensive cars for the consumer, while at the same time making the cars substantially SAFER, President Donald Trump, via Twitter.

Furthermore, Trump tweeted that "Many more cars will be produced under the new and uniform standard, meaning significantly more JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!".

Under the Clean Air Act, California created standards for auto emissions that exceeded federal standards.

Auto makers eventually lined up production with California's standards, after more than a dozen other states adopted them as well.

Saying that Trump was acting on a "political vendetta," CA Gov.

Gavin Newsom (D.) called out the Trump administration.

[The Trump Administration has] abdicated its responsibility to the rest of the world on cutting emissions and fighting global warming, Gavin Newsom, CA Governor, via CNN.

Auto industry groups responded, saying that they "support one national program.".

Former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials slammed the move.

If the courts allow this unprecedented reversal ... then President Trump will have done more to destroy the planet than any other president in history, Jeff Alston, former EPA official, via CNN
