Awful Human Being Trump Lifts Obama-Era Ban On Importing African Elephant Heads

Donald Trump continued his effort to dismantle anything with Barack Obama’s name on it, with the administration announcing it will reverse the previous administration’s ban on importing African elephant heads into the United States.

According to The Hill, Trump’s “U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) said it has determined that hunting African elephants in Zimbabwe and Zambia” is a good thing that should be encouraged.

More from the report:

The Trump administration is reversing an Obama administration ban on bringing to the United States the heads of elephants killed in two African countries.

 

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) said it has determined that hunting African elephants in Zimbabwe and Zambia “will enhance the survival of the species in the wild,” which is the standard by which officials judge whether to allow imports of parts – known as trophies – of the animals.

 

“Legal, well-regulated sport hunting as part of a sound management program can benefit the conservation of certain species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation,” an FWS spokesman said in a statement late Wednesday, after hunting group Safari Club International announced the policy.

 

Imports will be allowed for elephants killed between Jan. 21, 2016 and the end of 2018.

To the surprise of exactly no one, pro-gun and hunting organizations were thrilled about the news. It’s also a safe bet to assume that Trump’s two sons were happy that their father’s administration scored a victory for big game hunters.

This is, after all, something they’re pretty passionate about:

Of course, the initial reasoning for the Obama administration’s decision to enforce the ban was simple: They believed it would encourage the killing of these animals. Trump, on the other hand, seems to believe it will help the species survive.

With the world crumbling around his administration – from criminal investigations to a complete inability to accomplish anything substantive – Donald Trump thought now would be a good time to encourage the killing of African elephants.

It seems that this president has accepted the fact that he can’t accomplish anything himself, even with complete Republican control of Congress, so he’s going to continue tearing apart anything Barack Obama did – even something as popular as protecting innocent animals.
