Trump Tried to Reverse Obama Decision that Honored Alaskan Natives

In a sign of respect to Alaska's native population, then-President Barack Obama announced in 2015 that he was officially renaming the country's tallest mountain from Mt. McKinley to Denali, its name in the indigenous Athabascan language. During a meeting earlier this year with Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Donald Trump asked about reversing the decision made by the Obama administration."The Alaska Native people named that mountain over 10,000 years ago," Sullivan said. "Denali, that was the name." More here.
