Democrats have argued that Trump and Zinke were being hypocritical by agreeing to a request by Florida's Republican governor to withdraw from the drilling plan, but not making the same accommodation to states with Democratic governors.
Last week, the Trump Administration announced a controversial plan to dramatically expand drilling leases across 90 percent of the US outer continental shelf, including the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and parts of the Arctic Ocean.
"This political decision to open the magnificent and attractive Pacific Coast waters to oil and gas drilling flies in the face of decades of strong opposition on the part of Washington, Oregon and California - from Republicans and Democrats alike", they said in a joint statement.
The governor, a close ally of Trump, frequently visits the president and lunched with him less than two weeks ago at Trump's Mar-A-Lago estate in Palm Beach.
"How loud do we have to shout for you to hear us, too?" Instead of focusing on short-term benefits for oil and gas companies, our country should be looking toward a clean energy future.
