Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday reignited her call for President TrumpDonald John Trump2020 Democrats spar over socialism ahead of first debate Senate passes .5 billion border bill, setting up fight with House 'Teflon Don' avoids the scorn of the 'family values' GOP — again MORE to reverse his administration's decision to lift a ban on allowing elephant trophies into the U.S.

"Elephants aren’t trophies. I’m not going to stop talking about them," DeGeneres tweeted, resurfacing a months-old clip from her show, in which she called on Trump to reverse the decision.

"Mr. President, I am begging you to change your mind and protect these majestic animals," she says in the clip.


The Trump administration moved earlier this month to reverse an Obama-era ban on some big-game trophies, such as elephants, being brought to the U.S.

The Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced it will now consider all permits for importing elephant trophies from some African nations on a “case-by-case basis," breaking from the president's earlier promises to maintain the ban.

In a formal memorandum on March 1, the FWS said it will withdraw its 2017 Endangered Species Act findings for trophies of African elephants from Zimbabwe and Zambia, “effective immediately.”

The decision expanded on a move in November that lifted a ban on elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia.

DeGeneres launched a social campaign last year to raise money for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a conservation organization that operates elephant rescues and rehabilitation programs.
