Trump Tricked Us – Oppose His Quiet Plan to Allow Trophy Hunting

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Do not make the U.S. complicit in the brutal killing of elephants for profit by allowing elephant trophies to be imported.

Without publicizing it, the Trump administration has decided to lift a ban on importing elephant trophies, permitting these cruelly sport-hunted items from certain African countries into the U.S. “on a case-by-case basis.” This move comes mere months after — amidst widespread uproar — Trump announced that he would pause the rollback of this important ban, tweeting that he “will be very hard pressed to change [his] mind that this horror show in any way helps conservation of elephants or any other animal.”

In the past Trump stated, “I didn’t want elephants killed and stuffed and have the tusks brought back into this [country].” He also expressed skepticism about the idea that hunting promotes conservation efforts — a skepticism shared by activists and conservationists, who say that it is unlikely that fees paid by big game hunters truly make it to the wildlife agencies they are meant to support. The quiet decision to lift this ban will be hugely damaging to elephant conservation efforts. Sign below to demand that the ban on importing elephant trophies remains in place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

The rollback of the ban on importing elephant trophies is unacceptable and dangerous. It not only encourages the brutal killing of innocent and endangered elephants for profit, it also makes the U.S. complicit in that brutality. Additionally, conservation activists are doubtful that big game hunting fees actually benefit conservation and make it to the organizations they are intended to.

You expressed similar skepticism yourself, and have publicly stated your opposition to lifting the ban. You said that you “didn’t want elephants killed and stuffed and have the tusks brought back,” and that you would be “very hard pressed to change [your] mind that this horror show in any way helps conservation of elephants or any other animal.” I urge you to stand by those statements. Please help save innocent and endangered elephants, and do not allow the ban on the importation of elephant trophies to be lifted.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Those are two weak cowardly individuals, who like all hunters are basically insecure in their skins as true men, and who need to bolster their fragile egos and boost their interpretation of “masculinity “ by killing without remorse or compassion those beautiful animals, and posing with their trophies to impress fellow morons. Our wildlife and environment are in mortal danger with the extinction of species,deforestation etc… With idiots like this and their cohorts in power who have the collective empathy of a brick, we must lift up our voices and act to protect those animals against those depredations.

    • Well said Jeanette.
      Those two are pathetic weak individuals who think killing an animal brings them some sort of manliness.
      I can’t even stand to look at these two disgusting individuals.

  2. THE JERK TRUMPS! RICH BOYS WHO THINK THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY CAN! We must keep protesting these horrible things they do. DEMAND NO TROPHY HUNTING EVER…WORLD WIDE!

  3. Now aren’t they real men….evil monsters. Grow up and face reality buds. You’re not special and trophy hunting is disgraceful. Get a real life. Volunteer to make this a better world. Do something that matters.

  4. To see this photo of the Trump brothers holding this beautiful, majestic, DEAD Leopard, from being trophy hunted and murdered, is sickening and maddening. To see these two men smiling while showing off their “trophy” is truly outrageous and vile. Just because they have the money to murder our iconic majestic wild animals should not give them the pass to do so. They are pathetic morons. All of these heartless trophy hunters should hang their heads in SHAME.

  5. I hope there is a hell so that this piece of crap will burn in it when he leaves this earth. How anyone can justify this is ok is beyond me. What a disgusting family.

  6. It’s so brutality and please make them stop doing those harmful acts to innocent and endanger animals in their habitat.

  7. Those who focus on killing and destroying our wonderful wildlife, rather than protecting these unique animals are sick in the head.

    Conserve nature and OUTLAW psychopathic acts of violence, NOW!

  8. Disgusting to see this gorgeous, majestic, leopard with his eyes wide open.

    His last look was at those two, ugly grinning murderers.

    They have too much money and spend it killing than protecting animals.

  9. These precious animals are being extinct by these rich idiotic morons! I wait for the day these trophy hunters are extinct! Stupid brainless very sick scum of the earth! Money obviously rots the brain away! Can’t figure out what good to do with it but murder innocent animals!

  10. I’ve been keeping mentioning this undeniable fact that most trophy hunters are white Americans. And who could be more symbolic of white Damn-’MuriKKKa than Trump? Is it any surprise that his sons are notorious trophy hunters?

  11. The sixth great extinction is happening now and it’s not being caused by a comet hitting the Earth. It’s being caused by humans! We cause climate change, destroy or take over other creatures’ habitat, and kill for fun. And I thought that we were supposed to have evolved. And we have in some respects, such as in dexterity, innovation and survival. But many of us have not evolved in the most important areas – empathy, and the realization that we are here to be stewards of this Earth and everything upon it and not it’s destroyers. WAKE UP PEOPLE! If we humans are left being the only creatures on Earth, then we have nothing.

    The TRUMP boys are really BALL LESS bullies….bullied by their dad….now they need the urge to feel strength and power of their own…..sooooo they hunt…giving them POWER …faulse power with guns over animals that cannot defend themselves …like when they were CHILDREN…..POWERLESS AGAINST THEIR DAD….this is the truth!!!,

  13. Here”s a idea “Hunt each other, Leave the animals alone” See which of you lives to see another day!

  14. Cora Harder says:

    These primitive animal killers are nothing but human scum!
    The whole Trump dirt Pack is supposed to rot in hell!
    Better today than tomorrow!
    Pity that America has an fucking animal killer as president

  15. Where DO I begin to condemn the oldest
    Trump boys
    Wild animals don’t stand a chance of
    survival anymore. An idea—-join a guard
    team protecting endangered animals from
    Poachers. These poachers only kill for the
    tusks and animal horns. Maybe the next
    “Trophy” could be a poacher & the animals
    Win & live on I know–I’m crazy
