Trump Just Caved On A Major Decision In A Tweet After Brutal Opposition

- November 17, 2017

The elephant in the room has finally been addressed.

Trump’s decision by tweet comes as animal lovers everywhere, as well as every major conservation organization, exploded in outrage when it was revealed that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would reverse an Obama administration ruling and resume allowing the importation of endangered African elephants killed for trophies in Zimbabwe and Zambia. It was later revealed that the ban on was also lifted for lions as well as elephants.

With the Trump administration reversing all of the environmental regulations put in place by Obama, and the President’s sons famous for posing with the carcasses of the poor creatures that they brutally murdered for sport, the reversal of the decision to allow these horrific trophies comes as a surprise.

Speculation is rampant that the opposition of a few key Republican stalwarts may have contributed to Trump’s change of heart. On Friday, House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Representative Ed Royce (R-CA) denounced the decision, saying:

“Elephants and other big game in Africa are blood currency for terrorist organizations, and they are being killed at an alarming rate. Today Zimbabwe is in economic and political crisis. I have zero confidence that the regime – which for years has promoted corruption at the highest levels – is properly managing and regulating conservation programs.”

Perhaps even more influential was the opposition of conservative radio and Fox News personality Laura Ingraham, who tweeted this message out to the President:

Despite the good news included in Trump’s tweet, the extent of the distrust that the President has engendered in his term so far was well reflected in the comments to it.

And finally, this reply, one that would make Kathy Griffin proud.
