President Trump recently discussed what it took to convince him to reauthorize drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: a quick phone call from a "friend" that's "in that business" (i.e. a donor). He claimed to not really care about drilling until they called, then decided to quickly add it to his tax reform bill to appease them. Of course, he'd want to appease him seeing that the fossil fuel industry contributed millions of dollars to his presidential campaign and inauguration committee.
