Will animals survive Trump?

Animal protection on federal land is being swept away by acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist, and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke with a wink and a nod from Donald Trump.

Trump has no concern nor the slightest interest in animals that cannot turn a profit. Zinke and Wheeler know they have carte blanche control to rid or pollute federal land without concern for animals to make way for oil, gas, coal industries, tract housing, maybe even a casino. Anything with dollar signs.
