Trump Picks New FCC Chairman

President Trump announced another new member of his administration on Monday evening. Ajit Pai will be the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. As a member of the FCC, Pai strongly opposed net neutrality. Many conservative fans on Twitter heralded the new appointment as a win for freedom. 

"I am deeply grateful to the President of the United States for designating me the 34th Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission," Pai said in a statement. "I look forward to working with the new Administration, my colleagues at the Commission, members of Congress, and the American public to bring the benefits of the digital age to all Americans."
