CLIMATE CHANGE/ENVIRONMENT/KEYSTONE/PIPELINES/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “I withdrew from the one-sided, energy-destroying Paris Climate Accord. It was a disaster. It cost us billions of dollars, and it would have made us a noncompetitive nation.
We cancelled the Obama administration’s job-crushing Clean Power Plan. You know all about that.
I approved the Keystone XL and the Dakota Access pipelines immediately upon assuming office.
We opened up ANWR in Alaska to energy exploration, ended the moratorium on coal leasing on federal lands, and reopened public lands and offshore areas to oil and gas exploration.”
