Dylan Jones is a 21-year-old senior at Kansas University who supports President Trump and gun rights and opposes abortion. As of today, he also supports action on climate change as part of a new student-led coalition across U.S. college campuses.

Why it matters: Jones represents the next generation of Republicans, many of whom don’t support the position of most elected Republicans in Congress and in the Trump administration of either ignoring or rejecting outright the issue of climate change.
