According to Fox News, the
The Keystone XL oil pipeline won't use American steel in its construction, despite what President Donald Trump says.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday that's due to language in a presidential directive Trump issued in January.
"The way that executive order is written, it’s specific to new pipelines or those that are being repaired, Sanders said. "And since this one is already currently under construction, the steel is already literally sitting there, it would be hard to go back. But I know that everything moving forward would fall under that executive order."
The directive applies to new pipelines or those under repair. Sanders said it would be hard to do an about-face on Keystone because it's already under construction and the steel has been acquired.
Trump said as recently as last week that Keystone and the Dakota Access pipeline must use American steel "or we're not building one."
The reason is such B.S. He said they cant do it because of the way the Executive Order was written. Its not Obama's order, it's his. Its his fault if he "can't" do it, because his minions wrote the order. If they wrote it wrong, they can fix it.
He could just issue another order revising the first one, like he did for his immigration plan.
Slowly but surely, he is going back on every campaign pledge. Many are saying now "I told you so". This is another disappointment.
Lets wait and see what his excuse will be why he cant pass any 2A friendly laws.
