Popular-Vote Loser Trump is draining the actual wetlands, not the metaphorical "swamp."
On top of appointing a climate denier opposed to the Environmental Protection Agency to be in charge of the EPA and seeking to build the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and promoting the use of coal, Trump has threatened numerous executive orders to attack the environment.
He's produced the first, and it's an assault on clean water. Around the country, waterways partially cleaned up by the EPA since its creation under President Richard Nixon are threatened. The top two polluters are big corporations. The third is a not-so-little branch of the U.S. government itself called the United States military.
It's time we take action online and off.
