NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Donald Trump has a personal beef with one of the efforts aimed at protecting the environment — it's messing with his hair.
The billionaire businessman turned Republican presidential candidate told supporters in South Carolina on Wednesday that he's not impressed by replacements for old aerosol hairsprays that contained ozone-eating chemicals called CFCs. He says the more modern pump-style products come out in globs and get stuck in his hair.
In fact, aerosol hairspray no longer contains ozone-damaging chemicals. The Environmental Protection Agency says those have been banned from consumer aerosol products in the U.S. since the late 1970s.
