Former President Barack Obama left the White House believing he had served his two terms well and left an established legacy behind.

But in reality, President Trump is working quickly to undo all the damage done by Obama and replace those who were appointed by him.

But one Obama-era appointee is at the root of issues involving certain budget-related legislation and it’s causing problems for President Trump.

Chemical Safety Board member Rick Engler is currently promoting policies that will directly reverse the budget cuts to the federal regulatory board he sits on.

President Trump wrote legislation to allow the budget cuts to happen, but Obama’s appointee wants to directly undo all he has done.

The Daily Caller reported:

An Obama administration appointee with deep ties to labor unions promoted a grassroots campaign to reverse the Trump administration’s proposal to eliminate funding for the federal regulatory board he sits on.

The Daily Caller News Foundation obtained emails that show Chemical Safety Board (CSB) member Rick Engler worked with union activists to promote a grassroots campaign to keep the agency from losing its funding.

President Donald Trump’s “skinny” budget, released in March, called for eliminating the CSB, which began operating in 1998. Engler and labor union activists quickly worked to try and protect the board’s nearly $12 million budget.

With Engler’s push to reverse Trump’s policies, it seems the regulatory board is moving from a non-biased fact-finding agency to an advocacy organization.

Engler himself has specific ties to advocacy programs in the past.

The Daily Caller reported:

Engler worked with the New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC), a group he founded in the late 1980s, to get activists to urge lawmakers to save CSB’s funding, according to documents the DCNF reviewed.

He led the group for nearly 30 years. The agency was the first to bring labor and environmental activists together to push for regulations on industry. Engler was also elected vice president of the New Jersey State Industrial Union Council, which is affiliated with the AFL-CIO.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration supplies the group with federal dollars. The National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (NCOSH), a coalition of labor groups, also provides funding.

Former President Barack Obama appointed Engler to CSB in 2014. He was one of the many Obama nominees pushed through the Senate after former Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, changed the rules regarding the filibuster.

With Engler’s vendetta against Trump, it seems the organization is motivated by political reasoning now, with Obama’s personal appointees focusing on blocking any changes President Trump is making.
