He also made the false claim that windmills are a "graveyard for birds."

On Tuesday, President Trump one-upped his position against wind power, arguing that windmills lower property values and that their "noise causes cancer," The Hill reports.

““If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value,” he said at the National Republican Congressional Committee's annual spring dinner. “And they say the noise causes cancer.”

With no evidence to back up his claim, he began imitating the noise of a windmill before calling windmills a “graveyard for birds.”

“If you love birds, you never want to walk under a windmill, because it’s a sad, sad sight,” he said. This claim is despite the Department of Energy's finding that windmills rarely cause bird deaths.

The comments were made while bashing his 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton, who supported investing into renewable wind power to prevent further worsening climate change.
