The Trump administration has thrown out a new rule meant to keep endangered whales and sea turtles from getting tangled in mile-long West Coast fishing nets. The National Marine Fisheries Service announced Monday it was canceling the pending limit on the West Coast’s sword-fishing industry — even though the fishing industry itself proposed the new rule.
Emphasis is ours. In other words, Trump’s minions gutted the rule just because they could. The well-being of wildlife is no concern of theirs.
