After suffering an embarrassing defeat as he failed to get his healthcare bill passed in congress, president Donald Trump has now decided to eradicate some of the old Obama-era regulations which were largely put together by the Democrats. At the White House signing ceremony, Trump said: “I will keep working with Congress, with every agency, and most importantly, the American people, until we eliminate every unnecessary, harmful and job-killing regulation that we can find. We have a lot more coming.”
He cancelled the regulation issued by the Education Department which requires federally funded teacher preparation programs be evaluated based on the academic performance of those teachers’ students. Trump also nullified the regulation that was put in place by the Bureau of Land Management, which states that federal land managers should consider climate change and other long-term effects of proposed development on public lands.
