    Trump's EPA targets Russia with new rule.....

    The Environmental Protection Agency could become part of Trump's crackdown on Russia by targeting the import of cancer-causing asbestos into the United States.


    The EPA said that new regulations to restrict the use of asbestos in the U.S. “would prevent import, including from Russia and anywhere else."


    “Under the proposed [rule], the manufacture (including import) and processing of asbestos would be prohibited, unless EPA approved an application to allow for the manufacture and processing of asbestos in specific cases,” an EPA spokesman told the Washington Examiner.


    Russia is of particular interest in the rulemaking because it is the largest global producer of asbestos and the second-biggest exporter of the mineral substance to the U.S., and because its largest asbestos producer, Uralasbest, posted photos to its Facebook page in June showing large shipping pallets with Trump's face emblazoned on them, apparently bound for the U.S.

    That means that imports from the Russian firm with Trump’s face on its product could be prohibited from importing its products into the U.S. …..snip~

    So Trump will kill 2 birds with this stone. Put pressure on Russia and try to get them to remove Trumps face from their Shipments. What say ye?

    Gosh, this must have fallen through the libtard cracks during the Obama occupation. Now they just look all hypocritical and thoughtless.

    The EPA FAQ points out that the Obama administration “had the opportunity to propose restrictions on new uses” of asbestos, but chose not to take any action. …..snip~

    Another action taken by Trump against the Russians, and yet he is still to soft on them, still a Putin puppet, Right?
