Comments by Pres. Trump about supporting a clean environment have touched a nerve with Gov. Jay Inslee.

Trump, in Las Vegas last Friday night for a candidate rally, told the crowd that he wants "crystal clean air" and "crystal clean water". Trump's comment, summarized in the embeded tweet below by a White House news correspondent attending Trump's speech prompted Gov. Inslee to take a political swipe at Trump.

Gov. Jay Inslee tweeted that Trump should have to take a polygraph test to verify that he wants clean water and clean air.

Oddly, it was then candidate for governor, Jay Inslee, in October 2012, who said three times during the campaign that he was against raising taxes.

On October 2, 2012 Inslee stated "I am not proposing tax increases."

On October 11, 2012 Inslee said I "do not believe fundamentally we should be doing tax increases."

However, once Inslee won the 2012 election over Rob McKenna, Inslee proceeded to approve several tax hikes in the following legislative session in 2013 in direct contradiction to what he repeatedly told Washington voters just a few months prior during the campaign.
