Big Trump Shocker; Not

The very first bill that Президент* ДоналЬд Трамп signed into law benefits large oil companies and hides bribing Russian officials.
President Donald Trump Tuesday signed the first in a series of congressional regulatory rollback bills, revoking an Obama-era regulation that required oil and mining companies to disclose their payments to foreign governments.

That regulation, part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reforms, was strongly opposed by the oil and gas industry — including Trump's Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, who as head of Exxon Mobil personally lobbied to kill the Securities and Exchange Commission's rule that he said would make it difficult to do business in Russia.

OMG, you've seen Pravda. (I would not have used a soft sign after the "l," but there is probably a trick of pronunciation I'm not catching. My Russian is rusty, seriously.)

Also, when I first saw that, I said "'Tramp.' How appropriate."

I got that from a friend who, shall we say, was paid by the government to be fluent in Russian.

But I just checked: Goggle Translate and the Prompt translator both use the soft sign in his name.
