Trump goes big, wrests wetland-filling title from Walker

Fed up with stories about a Governor he vanquished in presidential campaigning getting credited with opening state-protected wetlands to 'development,' and grabbing headlines in national media that puffed up that certain Governor's cred within certain GOP circles, including:

*  Scott Walker is the worst candidate for the environment

*  How Scott Walker Dismantled Wisconsin's Environmental Legacy

Or in posts on this blog:

See flooding off Foxconn site: Heads up, downstream!!

* Walker's been filling Wisconsin wetlands for nearly eight years

The always competitive Trump shows Walker how you mess with the land and water:
Feds reopen forest near Boundary Waters to mining
The Trump administration has cleared the way for renewed mineral leasing — and potentially mining — in about 365 square miles of the Superior National Forest within the watershed of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Yeah, that's what I'm talking about:
