Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden continued to move to the far-left on Wednesday night, saying that he likes socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) $93 trillion “Green New Deal” and that the plan does not go too far.
Biden made the remarks during a CNN town hall event on climate change that was set up in a way that sensationalized the issue with hysterical claims and featured numerous false claims from candidates.
“Do you think it goes too far?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Biden about the Green New Deal. “Is it unrealistic promising too much?”
“No, no it’s not,” Biden responded.
Biden continued by suggesting that the plan actually did not go far enough in terms of laying out specifics for how it would be implemented.
Biden, who recently pledged to eliminate all fossil fuels if elected, also said that he wants to “shut down” all of the coal power plants during the debate.
