Green energy. The windmills. They don't work. They're too expensive. They kill all the birds. They ruin your landscapes. And yet the environmentalists love the windmills.

Over the years, Trump has made a number of strange claims about windmills. In 2019, for example, he absurdly suggested that the noise windmills make can cause cancer.
