Speaking to Republicans at a retreat in Baltimore on Thursday, President Donald Trump boasted that his administration reversed Obama-era clean water regulations, adding that, “We have the cleanest water, the cleanest air that we’ve ever had in the history of our country, right now.”

But according to RawStory, the president then went on to make a bizarre statement:

“And just for the press, because they’ll get me on that one, I’m thinking, let’s say the history of our country over the last 25 years... I would say they probably had cleaner water, cleaner air because there was nobody here. So I have to be very accurate.”
