President Donald Trump had a strange meandering thought about Nevada’s nuclear waste problem.

“Nevada, I hear you on Yucca Mountain and my Administration will RESPECT you!” Trump tweeted. “Congress and previous Administrations have long failed to find lasting solutions – my Administration is committed to exploring innovative approaches – I’m confident we can get it done!”

It’s unknown what exactly Trump’s position is, he doesn’t say whether he supports nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain or not. However, Nevada Independent editor John Ralston fact-checked Trump, who put funding to restart Yucca Mountain in his budgets.

Ralston further said that Trump’s claim that Congress and previous administrations have failed Nevadans was also false.

During an appearance on Fox News this Wednesday, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley addressed President Trump's recent pardons and commutations, specifically the commutation of Rod Blagojevich, suggesting it was done in an effort to clamp down on "aggressive sentencing" by prosecutors.

"The fact is, the president is clearly against excessive sentencing," Gidley said.
