Interior 'Propaganda' Video And Tweets May Violate Ethics Laws: Experts

"A new video from the Interior Department praising President Trump’s efforts in office — and subsequent Twitter comments defending it — have raised questions from ethics experts who say the content veers closely toward propaganda.

Interior Secretary David Bernhardt tagged the president on Twitter while sharing a video that praises the “Trump administration conservation record.”

It ends with clips from a speech that Trump gave in his official capacity as president where he repeatedly attacked his opponent, Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Trump is seen in the video touting the importance of “preserving the awesome majesty of God’s great creation.”"
