Leonardo DiCaprio Meets with Donald Trump to Discuss Environment

Leonardo DiCaprio, along with Terry Tamminen, the CEO of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, met with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss “jobs centered on preserving the environment’ on Wednesday (December 7) in New York City, the AP reports.

“Today, we presented the President-elect and his advisors with a framework — which LDF developed in consultation with leading voices in the fields of economics and environmentalism — that details how to unleash a major economic revival across the United States that is centered on investments in sustainable infrastructure. Our conversation focused on how to create millions of secure, American jobs in the construction and operation of commercial and residential clean, renewable energy generation,” Terry said.

“We look forward to continuing the conversation with the incoming administration as we work to stop the dangerous march of climate change, while putting millions of people to work at the same time,” Terry added.

Donald was reportedly receptive to Leonardo‘s ideas. Leo also apparently gave Donald a copy of his documentary film Before the Flood about the environment. Leonardo had previously given a copy of the film to Donald‘s daughter Ivanka.

    Did he take a private plane there?

  • Syzygy

    when Leo stops banging children, Trump will stop believing climate change is a chinese hoax.

  • John Dow

    Clinton supporters are running away from her like rats from a sinking ship :)

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    What do you mean children? Last time I checked his gfs were all legal adults over 18.

  • Visitor

    Gisele’s husband–whom she left Leo for–voted for Trump, who believes climate change is a hoax created by the Chinese.

  • Visitor

    Borderline legal, and old enough to be his daughters. This is why he can’t be taken seriously.

  • Syzygy

    i was referencing edward norton’s new interview with fallon, mate.

  • xxxDontKillRocknRollxxx

    There’s no such thing as “borderline legal”. There must be a reason why it’s a crime until a certain age and why it’s not when you’re 18 or over…

  • No Comment

    What an idiot.

  • Golddigger

    There are many MANY FACTS why he cant be taken seriously! Don’t worry about his “jj fans” comments, most likely it is his PR team or just a simple lunatic(s).

  • Golddigger

    Yep!

  • Golddigger

    Now Trump says he has an open mind about climate change. :) And yeah let’s be real Tom Brady is a gorgeous man so I understand Gisele (she is amazing too).

  • Golddigger

    Yep. Political prostitution as it is.

  • Kelly

    He doesn’t really have a choice. It’s the smart thing to do, especially considering who Trump just picked to lead the EPA.

  • Roscoe

    This guy is on a private jet more than I’m in my car, but he cares about sustaining the environment. LOL, then he and his “business partners” will shrug and ask for more money when their ideas fail or otherwise use more resources than the non-”green” alternatives. I hope Trump laughed this fraud and his friends out of the room.

  • Visitor

    Grown men who’ve already lived their lives preying on the naivety of girls who only just started theirs is predatory and creepy.

  • Dream Girl

    Climate change has been scientifically documented and is becoming a serious problem and the environment is being destroyed rapidly. Denial will not protect the environment but lead to the demise of the planet. Facts and scientific studies prove that, deniers are the real frauds.

  • Dream Girl

    Climate change is real, scientific facts prove that. When you are making that comment about Leo’s fans, his supporters and everyone that is professionally associated with Mr. Dicaprio as a general statement I find that completely irresponsible behavior.
    Glad to know you classify Leo fans like that, that speaks volumes about how you view others

  • Roscoe

    I can point to other scientists who claim that climate change and global warming are government promoted hoaxes to extract more taxes from the world’s population. You can’t even admit that the ones most critical of us are also the most hypocritical. And who put us on the path that they now claim is killing the planet?.

  • Dream Girl

    I am not going to educate you, I do not have time to do that. Ignorance and denial does not substantiate anything factual. The earth is being polluted and wildlife is becoming extinct and climate change will have devastating impact on civilization too , read the living earth planet report and other scientific studies, these are facts .

    http://www.worldwildlife.org/pages/living-planet-report-2016

    If we fail to protect the planet from climate change, we will fail ourselves,

  • Thiran Uthaman

    Clinton supporters are running? The election is over Einstein. Trump won. Its not like they are running, Its simply that they have no other choice but to go to him.

  • Roscoe

    And Gore said the North Pole would be melted by now. People who disputed it then were called crackpots or other names like the “denier” label of today. Were there not studies and scientists also backing up his claims back then? But people who clearly lied will continue to receive the benefit of the doubt while people who correctly identified the insanity that it is are still wrong in the books of people like you. I will not read any so-called science that has been twisted to fulfill an agenda. While you take the proven liars discredited word and wait for the sky to fall any year now, the rest of us will be living our lives after we get the green gestapo off of our backs.

  • Guest

    That Ed Norton interview! Lol! Which Israeli supermodel turned 18 four hours ago? Totally put his business out there. Leo must have a Bar fixation.

  • devilsadvocate

    As if Leo cares.

  • Dream Girl

    Mr Trump needs to realize we need to protect the planet, I am an environmental scientist and know more about this subject than most and know that the planet is being destroyed rapidly. Earth will not be inhabitable for living creatures or humanity in the future if efforts are not made to protect the planet, without a living sustainable planet nothing will exist. I really have no time to educate you further. Either you are for the planet or against sustaining the planet, and if you truly care about life on this planet you will reexamine your view because the planet is being destroyed. If you are in the position to preserve the planet, do so for the sake of humanity.

  • John Dow

    Climate change has been happening since the dawn of time and nothing you can do about it. Climate change has been made a serious problem only because some people realized that they can make a shitload of money out of it and now we have what we have.

  • Roscoe

    One more time, criticize DiCaprio and all others that are colossal wasters and hypocrites. If you don’t, you are a hypocrite and fraud just like them.

  • Narima

    Leo is obsessed with Isreal.. Ed said truth
    When he said that Leo likes Israeli models, lol

    What choice are you talking about? He is an actor. He «cares» about climate and environment only because of money.

  • Golddigger

    Dicaprio doesnt give a f about climate change. He annoys most ppl (who still have brains) because he uses this topic for PR and money. Ppl who defend him are crazy or stupid. He is shady as hell!

  • Golddigger

    Why do they HAVE to go to him? What for? They were insulting Trump too hard! And why dicaprio have to go to him? He needs some advice, like, which yacht is better for this weekend? He is an actor, without any special education, with a shady reputation, the one who uses charity as PR!

  • xica

    I didn’t know they wanted to marry each other as he says and that they were planning to build a home there

  • Kris

    DiCaprio for president!

  • Dream Girl

    The biggest hoax and frauds are climate change deniers who do not understand science or scientific facts. Scientific evidence of climate change is available for your examination and you will deny that too. You need to be reminded that you generate a carbon foot print, consume all sorts of resources and generate waste, in essence your ignorance of your own behavior is example of your lack of intellectual capacity and ability to have an in depth understanding of the matters at hand.
    From this point forward I cease to correspond with someone, such as yourself who believes that you are authority on those issues. You do not care about the planet or the sustenance of the future of of earth. If you are so great, as you think you are, save the planet, but that is not your agenda. Further correspondence will be terminate. (I do not want to hear your nonsense, save those thoughts for yourself)

    Leo: When I was with Bar whom I loved very much, I came several times to Israel. I had visited his family, who lived in the Hod Hasharon area, and had even considered buying or building a house in Tel Aviv for a few months of the year. We thought of getting married at the time, but destiny decided otherwise …

    If Mr. DiCaprio did not care he would not have pursued those endeavors of bringing those issues to light. What matters to me is protecting the planet and its creatures and having a sustainable planet for generations to come. Many people do not care, about the planet or anything but their own self. I love this planet and its creatures and nature and its really heartbreaking as to what is being done to the planet and we need responsible planning to save the planet , its oceans its rainforests etc. once that is lost, we will head into total extinction somewhere in the future, people do care and we have to save this planet, (our lviving planet must be protected) I really hope you understand what is happening to the planet, and sign petitions for preserving this earth. Leo does care and that is commendable that he is doing his civic duty of spreading knowledge and being a concerned individual . There are solutions and we must gradually incorporate them before its too late and

    Love it! You can tell he has genuine affection for Leo but is like, yeah, dude loves gadgets, clubs, and models😅 The first thing Leo probably did after being rescued by Ed? Light up a cigarette, then looked up club openings and models.

  • Miss Plum

    He never said that

  • Narima

    Yeah, it’s strange because he is private when it comes to his lovelife !! Maybe it’s fake interview, I don’t know! !
