Interactive: Tracking Trump's anti-public lands crusade

After a chaotic first year, the Trump administration has made it abundantly clear that one goal is to systematically sell out America's public lands to the fossil fuel industry.

This interactive timeline examines all the actions taken by President Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to give away our nation’s heritage to energy companies for unfettered drilling, fracking and mining.
