In other news, Mitt Romney is making some kind of announcement on February 15th. He's expected to announced that he's running for Orin Hatch's Senate seat.
Meanwhile, Trump says he would have negotiated the Brexit "tougher" than British Prime Minister Theresa May has. Whateverthefuck that means. Trump can't even order his own McDonald's.
Finally, the EPA has decided to keep an Obama-era decision in place temporarily restricting mining operations in Southwest Alaska, at least for now. The project can still be approved in the future.
PLP CEO Tom Collier said in a statement that the EPA's announcement "does not change our approach," and said he believes Pebble "can responsibly construct and operate a mine ... that meets Alaska's high environmental standards." According to the EPA, its announcement "neither deters nor derails the application process of Pebble Limited Partnership's proposed project."
Alaska Gov. Bill Walker thanked the EPA and said in a statement that he had talked with Pruitt and "shared with him my belief that in the Bristol Bay region we should prioritize the resource that has sustained generations and must continue to do so in perpetuity."
This isn't over.
