Zinke confirmation on hold

The Missoulian seems to believe it has something to do with Zinke contradicting Trump on the climate change "hoax".
I wonder if the president has put Zinke's confirmation on hold and wants to talk things over with Zinke about his future or not having a future in his administration. http://missoulian.com/new...9399.html/

I think your are reading too much into this, Don. I think the Senate committee just postponed it for other reasons, NPR thought is was there is some Republican congressional pow wow scheduled later for the week.

Lots of Trump's appointees are contradicting Trump for the simple fact that Trump struggles with the truth. And that's why we elected him president.

Gunnar, with Trump's apparent intention to eliminate the EPA and environmental regulations I am wondering if people in your field of work are feeling anxious?

Well, we received notice that there is a newly enacted ban on new EPA grants and contracts, so yes, we are concerned.

Things will get better for our nation's governance. As a Trump supporter, I am counting on it.

The delay on the vote was apparently due to some sort of miscommunication between Chairman/Chairperson Senator Lisa Murkowski and Senator Maria Cantwell, the ranking Democrat on the committee. http://www.greatfallstrib.../96998436/
