The Mayor and the President, Part 1: Mayor Hancock on his working relationship with President Trump

The Trump administration is rolling back environmental regulations that pushed automakers toward electric vehicles and more fuel-efficient cars. If you think that doesn't impact Denver, our Mayor would politely disagree. It's where Kyle Clark picks up his week-long conversation: The Mayor and the President.

"There are very few priorities today in the city of Denver than to become more sustainable. I grew up in this city, and I remember the brown cloud, Kyle. I remember very clearly looking up as a kid and seeing the brown cloud ... Today, we don't have the brown cloud."  

Hancock says the city has made a commitment to reduce CO2 emissions by 80 percent by 2050. 

You can listen to a piece of our conversation in the video above.

Wednesday, we'll continue with the topic of immigration, specifically and the city's controversial handling of the case of a murder suspect flagged for deportation. Thursday, we discuss education issues, and Friday, marijuana.
