Trump’s true priorities revealed in holiday news dumps

In the week that followed, Trump kept giving his members new reasons to  celebrate. While cable news fixated on how much he was golfing –  his political appointees back in Washington worked overtime to deconstruct the administrative state, eviscerate several of Barack Obama’s signature achievements and roll back significant environmental protections.
