UK fines Trump for air pollution — and they don’t mean his speeches

America might still be enraptured (or enraged) by Donald “Build a Great Wall” Trump, but the U.K. is officially over it.

Last month, Britain’s highest court swatted down Trump’s attempt to block a wind farm that would be visible from his fancy Scottish golf course. In recent weeks, more than half a million Brits signed a petition to ban The Donald from entering the U.K. — a proposal that which will actually be debated in parliament later this month. And now the hilarious island nation has fined the presidential wannabe for the pollution spewing from his private plane.dt.common.streams.StreamServer

The Hill reports that “the UK’s Environment Agency said this week that DJT Operations I LLC, part of the real estate mogul’s Trump Organization, owes 1,610.73 pounds, or $2,347.28, for failing to pay for airplane carbon pollution under the European Union’s cap-and-trade system.”

Of course he didn’t pay! Trump doesn’t actually believe in climate change. AsBernie Sanders pointed out recently, “The entire scientific community has concluded that climate change is real and causing major problems, and Trump believes that it’s a hoax created by the Chinese. Surprised it wasn’t the Mexicans.” HA! Good one, Bernie.Dump (1)

So what does Trump believe in — besides, of course, making America great again? From the looks of his campaign website, not much. Trump lists his positions on all of five issues: trade with China, the Veterans Administration, tax reform, the Second Amendment, and — naturally — immigration. As for everything else, well, let’s just hope we never have to find out.
