The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) is upset at the National Park Service. The Hill reports the group recently filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to see if collusion exists between Donald Trump and the federal agency after one of the CBD’s attorneys discovered a merchant named Delaware North sold Trump wines in Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park.
In a statement to the press, an NPS spokesperson responded to the inquiry by saying that the agency authorizes vendors to sell a number of retail goods, among them wine. The agency does not, however, dictate what brands will be sold.
Furthermore, the winery that bears Trump’s name is owned by Donald’s son, Eric, and the manager of the Shenandoah stores for Delaware North, Mark Leach, said that while NPS had no role in the wine purchase decisions, it does encourage them to buy locally. The Trump winery is 30 miles from Shenandoah.
It should be noted that CBD has filed 15 lawsuits against the Trump Administration, something which the activist group publicly brags about.
Lawsuits have even been filed to stop the proposed wall the President wants to build on the southern border of the US. Litigation is also under way to keep EPA rules implemented by the Obama Administration geared to curb human-induced climate change as well.
With all of the Left’s talk about diversity or buy local this demonstrates that all their rhetoric is just that: talk. This is an underhanded attempt at harassment and intimidation grounded in sour grapes (pun intended). The Left’s hatred of the President knows no bounds.
