The administration of United States President Donald Trump has ruled out plans to sell new drilling rights off the coast of Florida, including highly prized waters in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, according to Bloomberg.

The decision comes after pressure from Florida’s Republican governor, Rick Scott, who has claimed the plans threaten the state’s natural resources.
