When the Trump administration officially takes office on January 20, 2017, it will be taking over one of the oldest, most contentious aspects of the federal land management process.
That’s because the Trump team is already in the process of dismantling the dog houses built to keep dogs out of federal property.
The Trump administration is already moving to dismantle two of those dog house projects, according to a new report from Recode.
Recode reported that the Trump Department of Housing and Urban Development is considering tearing down one of those two dogs houses at its own expense.
One of the two dog houses, built in 1892, is currently the headquarters of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
A spokesman for the agency confirmed to Recode that it would be taking the dogs out, but declined to comment further.
Fish & Wildlife Service is currently in the midst of removing the dog home,” the agency said in a statement.
“As part of that process, we have not received an official request from the Department of Homeland Security to remove any dogs.”
Recode’s source, an unnamed person familiar with the process, said that if the agency wants to demolish the second dog house, it could either tear down the structure itself or move it to another federal facility.
“It’s still a federal building,” the source said.
But the move to dismantle the second building is not without precedent.
In 2018, the Trump White House approved a $20 million request from Congress to tear down a pair of dog houses at the National Archives.
On Tuesday, the National Park Service announced it would not be taking down any of the structures.
After President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January, his administration announced a plan to dismantle several of the most contentious dog house programs in the country.
According to the U.”s Office of Management and Budget, Trump would move to demolishing about $300 million worth of structures that had been built between 2008 and 2020.
And that would be only the beginning.
Under the new administration, the Department has been working to dismantle about a dozen dog house sites across the country, according the report.
It is not clear how many of those sites will remain open to the public or what those sites’ fate will be.
