The Criminal in Chief’s days of trying to shit on the environment are just about over, eh Trumptards?
The U.S. Court of Appeals has again sided with conservationists and upheld a four-month-old ban on the U.S. importing Mexican shrimp and other seafood caught with gillnets that threaten the survival of vaquita porpoises.
