But why? Why would he possibly pull a rule to allow consumers to see their full price, including incidentals when they buy a ticket? Oh, because it was an Obama era rule:
US airlines are no longer required to disclose hidden baggage fees as soon as people start the ticket-buying process, the Department of Transportation announced this week. The news coincides with Delta Air Lines’ announcement that it’s going to start charging basic economy passengers baggage fees for flights after December 6th.
The DOT, in following with the Trump administration’s general disdain for Obama-era policies, is withdrawing the rule that requires airlines to disclose fees, saying that they have “limited public benefit,” as first reported by The Hill. The Obama administration proposed the rule would provide greater transparency for airline consumers. The move drew harsh criticism from Democratic members of Congress, some of whom called it a “reckless reversal” using Trump’s stance on government regulation as a guise to gift corporations more leeway to abuse consumers.
We are really living in a scary timeline:
A conservative politician at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Pensacola, Florida suggested that the president’s controversial decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may usher in the biblical end times.
Republican state Senator Doug Broxson represents the Florida Panhandle in the legislature and gave an introductory speech welcoming President Trump to Florida.
“Now, I don’t know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem — where the King of Kings [applause] where our soon coming King is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel,” Sen. Broxson predicted.
This is really good. Won’t matter of course but it’s still good:
A liberal group targeted President Trump’s Florida rally in which he supported Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) on Friday night with a mobile billboard featuring the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump’s sharp criticism of Moore.
American Bridge posted on Twitter a picture of a mobile billboard emblazoned with the younger Trump’s face and the quote, “There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children.”
