Trump: US Will Join One Trillion Trees Initiative | The Epoch Times

The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative. “We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said.
