Leonardo DiCaprio has laid President Donald Trump about the environment.

President Donald Trump has questioned the devastating effects of climate change. The Trump government has pursued an agenda for fossil fuels
& # 39; It has become clear that our political leaders have not lived up to the promises we made that day & # 39 ;, DiCaprio said on Saturday.
& # 39; Our future is being thrown away and our leaders, the ones we entrust to protect us and set a good example, fail to stop these dangerous trends or, in some cases, deny the science of this climate disaster, & # 39; he added.
It is not the first time that DiCaprio has spoken out against Trump. In 2017, he rebuked him for ignoring & # 39; facts and truths and modern science & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Unless you live in an alternative reality, there is no time left for denial, & # 39; said DiCaprio. & # 39; A CO2 neutral future is the only way we will inherit a planet capable of sustaining life on earth as we know it. & # 39;
Environmental activist Greta Thunberg, Sweden, addressed the Climate Action Summit at the United Nations General Assembly at the United Nations headquarters last Monday
DiCaprio has an environmental organization, Earth Alliance. He recently set up a $ 5 million fund to protect the Amazon rainforest against increasing fires.
At the New York conference, DiCaprio also praised Swedish student Greta Thunberg who spoke at the United Nations last week.
He embarrassed those who seemed to mock or insult the 16-year-old, including the president.
& # 39; People who seem to care more about profit and their own interests than about your future, & # 39; said the Oscar winner about them.
At the weekend, Thunberg said that she had wiped Donald Trump's sarcastic Twitter attack and said, "I knew he was going to say something about me & # 39; after she had torn apart the world leaders of the United Nations.
The US president wrote that Thunberg seems to be a very happy young girl looking forward to a beautiful and beautiful future, clearly meant as a mocking reaction to her emotionally charged speech.
