After a roaring success on Independence Day, President Trump announced from the White House Monday afternoon Salute to America will take place again next year.

Trump is calling the event "remarkable" and praising the "incredible, big, handsome crowds" it drew despite the rain. "It was something very special and I will say this, it was a wonderful day for all Americans".

Trump claimed that he gave his Cabinet secretaries "clear directions to focus on environmental challenges so we can provide the highest quality of life to all Americans".

"In addition to clean air and clean water that means being good stewards of our public lands, prioritizing cleanup of our polluted lands that threaten our most vulnerable citizens and threaten them very dearly, and implementing pro-growth policies to implement innovations and new technologies which improve American life and America's environment", he added.

They have also criticized the administration for allowing the United States to slip on other basic measures of environmental health such as air pollution and enforcement.

President Donald Trump isn't done celebrating.

Trump said America was a leader in providing clean drinking water, had slashed air pollution and was cutting carbon emissions, all while bolstering industry and reducing regulation.

While climate change and other environmental issues continue to resonate more strongly with Democrats than any other group, a majority of independents also rank it as an important consideration in the upcoming election.

While administration officials are not hoping to win over environmental advocates, they said that Trump can make the case to swing voters that he had managed to boost the economy without sacrificing core environmental protections.

"The President meets regularly with his advisers and while discussing the administration's environmental policy recently President Trump wanted to highlight some of the environmental actions his administration is taking to advance environmental protections as our economy has continued to grow", she said.

The United States also slipped in the global environmental rankings to No. 27 in 2018 from 26th during the past year of the Obama administration, according to the Environmental Performance Index, a project by Yale and Columbia universities to measure national performance on air, water, forestry and other metrics.

"We want the cleanest air, we want crystal clear water".

The United States has become the world's biggest oil and gas producer over the last couple of years, thanks mainly to a technology-led drilling boom.

Trump's speech comes at a time of growing national support for strong environmental protections.
