    President Trump Taps David Bernhardt For Secretary Of InteriorTitle
    President Donald Trump has selected acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt as a permanent replacement for former Secretary Ryan Zinke.

    In a tweet Monday announcing his decision, the President said: "David has done a fantastic job from the day he arrived, and we look forward to having his nomination officially confirmed!"

    "It's a humbling privilege to be nominated to lead a Department whose mission I love, to accomplish the balanced, common sense vision of our President," Bernhardt said in a statement.

    "Safari Club International adds its congratulations to David Bernhardt," said SCI President Paul Babaz. "I personally look forward to working closely with him as a member of the International Wildlife Conservation Council and wish David the best of luck as he enters this new phase in his career."

    Support for Bernhardt has poured in from key Congressional leaders and outside groups that have worked with Bernhardt during both his stint at Interior and throughout his career.

    "It's a brilliant move," said Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah, the ranking GOP member of the House Natural Resources Committee. "No one is more experienced, and I look forward to working with him."

    Bernhardt is an avid outdoorsman with years of experience managing fish and wildlife resources.

    Let's hope he has the backbone to support hunters. Apparently our President who once did no longer does.

    Given the history, I doubt he is being appointed because of anything to do with hunting.

    Hopefully he can convince others of the need to save the time and money duplicating efforts and simply follow CITES. One can dream, anyway.
