Thus far, there has been no Trump Tribal Nations Conference. However, the administration recently released “Promises Made, Promises Kept: Interior Releases Comprehensive List of Accomplishments under President Trump & Secretary Zinke” for 2017. This year in review starts with this “Promises Made, Promises Kept” list, which is organized according to Secretary Ryan Zinke’s top 10 priorities for the U.S. Department of the Interior.
