Trump's newest executive orders target a water-protection rule
President Trump's newest executive orders target a water-protection rule and elevate an initiative on historically black colleges and universities into the White House.
Trump signed the executive orders in back-to-back signing ceremonies at the White House on Tuesday. The first seeks to undo the Waters of the United States Rule, an Obama administration regulation that sought to reinterpret the Clean Water Act to extend federal protections to smaller rivers and streams.
In a Roosevelt Room ceremony with farmers and lawmakers, Trump called the rule "one of the worst examples of federal regulation" and said "it has truly run amok."
