President Trump is not a supporter of wind power, but his latest claims are that wind turbines lower your property values, kill birds, and the noise they produce causes cancer.

Trump made the comments Tuesday night during a speech at a national republican congressional committee dinner.

"If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75% in value. And they say the noise causes cancer. You tell me that one. [Imitates windmill] And of course it's like a graveyard for birds. If you love birds, you'd never want to walk under a windmill because it's a very sad, sad sight. It's like a cemetery," said the President.

Trump offered no evidence for the claim that windmill noise causes cancer.

Last month in Michigan, the president said that wind power doesn't work because wind doesn't always blow.
