In his speech, Mr Trump did not mention climate change and claimed signatories to the Paris accord lag behind America in terms of emissions reduction. "We continue to clean up the water", Wheeler said.

"And that's what we're doing", Trump said during a speech at the White House.

EPA data show huge improvements in air quality in recent decades since the imposition of landmark environmental regulations such as the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act.

"President Trump has a political problem, one that he created and certainly didn't solve by today's surreal press event,", according to Joe Bonfiglio, the president of EDF Action, which is the lobbying arm of the Environmental Defense Fund. "We will defend the environment, but we will also defend American sovereignty, American prosperity, and we will defend American jobs".

"I asked around because I wasn't sure if it was a mass marketing thing", said the stay-at-home dad who lives in Kansas City, Missouri, declining to give his real name for fear of harassment against his family.

They have also criticized the administration for allowing the United States to slip on other basic measures of environmental health such as air pollution and enforcement.

Trump also took aim at the Green New Deal saying it contrasts with the "practical solutions" that have been a focus of his administration.

"The President meets regularly with his advisers and while discussing the administration's environmental policy recently President Trump wanted to highlight some of the environmental actions his administration is taking to advance environmental protections as our economy has continued to grow", she said.

He has also vowed to pull the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, an worldwide accord to fight global warming through carbon emissions cuts and a transformation of the world economy away from fossil fuels.

In addition, Perry claimed Trump has, "a great story to tell", and should possibly speak about it more often.

"We're unlocking American energy and the USA is now a net exporter of clean, affordable, American natural gas", he said. The US - along with nine other countries - is ranked no. 1 for cleanest drinking water in the world by the 2018 Environmental Performance Index produced by Yale and Columbia universities and the World Economic Forum.

"I think we all agree on that".
