Breakingviews-Icahn and Trump both look bad in biofuels fight
Neither Carl Icahn nor Donald Trump is looking good in a fight over biofuels regulations. The billionaire investor wanted rules changed to help CVR Energy, a refiner he controls. Icahn resigned on Friday as the president’s adviser on deregulation just ahead of a New Yorker story detailing these alleged conflicts of interest. The picture gets even murkier because the White House now seems to be saying there was no job for Icahn to quit.
