Indian Country 52 #3 – Here’s Donnie!
“The hits just keep on coming for the environmental community. On Tuesday, President Trump signed executive memoranda aimed at advancing construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, projects heavily protested by climate activists and members of Native American and Aboriginal tribes as potentially catastrophic oil spill hazards.
Both the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) projects were frozen by Obama, who vetoed the former project in late 2015, and denied the final permits needed to push the latter pipeline completion last month. Yesterday, Trump revived both when he signed a document allowing the feds reconsider the Keystone XL, and another aiming to expedite completion of the DAPL. “We’ll see if we can get that pipeline built,” Trump said on Tuesday of the Keystone XL pipeline. “A lot of jobs, 28,000 jobs. Great construction jobs.””

““We will build our own pipeline, we will build our own pipes, like we used to, in the old days,” Trump said, as he signed the orders, insisting that it will be done with U.S. steel and labor.
President Obama rejected the Keystone XL, saying that it would not add many permanent jobs in this country while it would create excessive greenhouse emissions — a move that had endeared him to the environmental movement. The Canadian oil, nonetheless, still makes it to this country via the rail system.”
