Republicans Want to Give Trump 1 Historic Honor: Here’s Where They’ll Put His Name

Joe Biden is often blamed for economic problems rocking the United States, and most say it’s due to his far-left environmental policies. His bans to “save the earth” have driven up energy prices, affecting every industry and American.

While he was in office, his supporters claim that Donald Trump managed to protect the environment without crippling the U.S. economy.

He successfully rolled back Obama-era restrictions that some say did nothing to protect the earth; instead, they gave big government more power over private industry. In thanks for his legacy and future plans should he return to office, House Republicans have come up with a way to immortalize Trump’s achievements.

The Independent:
A proposed bill from a House Republican would rename coastal waters around the US after former president Donald Trump, whose administration rolled back dozens of environmental rules while he was in office.

“Floridians know the great value of our coastal natural resources and how important it is to have a president who cares about the strength and resilience of our oceans,” [Representative Greg] Steube said in a statement.

Rep. Greg Steube and other House Republicans have introduced a bill to rename coastal waters after President Trump. If passed, coastal waters would be called the ” Donald John Trump Exclusive Economic Zone of the United States.

This move is being used by Republicans to highlight Trump’s work while in office to protect U.S. waters while reducing big government. Trump slashed massive piles of red tape, eliminating over 100 environmental rules. Critics of environmental extremism claimed these rules did little to protect U.S. waters while hampering American innovation.

It’s unknown how successful this bill will be in Congress — chances are, it will not even be voted on in the current session. And the Democrat-run Senate will probably not pass a bill honoring Donald Trump. In reality, this move serves more as a reminder to Americans of Trump’s success while in office.

Republicans are highlighting how Trump was able to protect U.S. waters, while limiting big government. Some will contrast that with Biden’s aggressive environmental rules, which are responsible for sky-high gas and energy prices, not to mention inflation, which is hurting working Americans.

Key Takeaways:

  • House Republicans introduced a bill to rename coastal waters after former President Donald Trump.
  • The proposed name would be “Donald John Trump Exclusive Economic Zone of the United States.”
  • Republicans see this move as highlighting Trump’s efforts to protect U.S. waters and reduce government regulations.
  • Republicans contrast Trump’s approach with the current administration’s environmental policies.
