Joe Biden: If Am Elected Then Kiss Permit For Keystone Pipeline Goodbye
Obama administration in 2015 rejected the Keystone XL pipeline proposal but approved two years later by the Trump administration.
Rescinding the permit for the pipeline allowing it to cross the border into the United States would effectively kill the project.
Stef Feldman, the Biden’s campaign policy director, told the USA TODAY in a statement that “Biden strongly opposed the Keystone pipeline in the last administration.
He stood alongside President Obama and Secretary Kerry to reject it in 2015, and will proudly stand in the Roosevelt Room again as President and stop it for good by rescinding the Keystone XL pipeline permit.”
“Stopping Keystone was the right decision then and it’s still the right decision now,” Feldman continued, while also blasting President Donald Trump for withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement and gutting environmental regulations.
Donald Trump issued a permit for the construction of the pipeline weeks into his presidency after making the pipeline a central promise of his presidential campaign
The president has been continually vocal of his support of the pipeline despite the potential environmental implications, insisting that it would “create thousands of jobs.”
The Keystone XL became a lightning rod for President Barack Obama’s energy policy, with the administration taking seven years to make a decision before ultimately killing it over environmental concerns.
