WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is promoting what he's calling his "environmental leadership" despite deep skepticism from former federal regulators and environmental advocates.

Trump plans a White House address later Monday that's intended to provide a rare presidential focus on environmental issues.

The head of his Council on Environmental Quality says Trump's remarks will highlight his efforts to balance environmental challenges with business needs.

His administration has initiated dozens of rollbacks in environmental protections and accused the Obama administration in particular of going too far on rules.

Former Environmental Protection Agency officials say Trump is making a gesture to voters worried about climate change and pollution.

Environmental groups say Trump's rollbacks include some of the most sweeping in decades, and EPA's own estimates project increased deaths from some of the changes.
