Good Trump: Trump Opens Offshore Oil Exploration

On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order (EO), known as the "America-First Offshore Energy Strategy," that would potentially lift the restrictions on offshore drilling that were put in place by former-President Obama following the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
According to NPR:
The order directs Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to review a five-year plan in which President Obama banned drilling in parts of the Pacific, Arctic, and Atlantic Oceans. Zinke told reporters Thursday night that will be a long process, and a complex one, acknowledging that not all areas have oil or gas, and not all coastal communities want offshore drilling.
Reuters adds:
In addition to requiring a new five-year drilling plan, the order reverses Obama's decision to place certain parts of the Arctic permanently off limits to drilling.
