President Donald Trump has been a machine when it comes to bringing prosperity back to our great nation, and the Keystone XL pipeline is proving to be yet another example of his efficiency.
The pipeline itself represents the ingenuity and industrious spirit of the American people. As the U.S. continues to show the world that they are true captains of industry, we are making massive technological moves to redistribute our resources. Think of the entire project as the natural resources version of Manifest Destiny: Americans need what the pipeline provides, so we are undertaking enormous, continent spanning work to make that happen.
Not only does the mere act of envisioning and installing a project of this size provide us with a great sense of civic pride, new details about the exact nature of the pipeline are providing us with yet another example of the so-called “Trump Effect”.
“The company behind the contentious Keystone XL Pipeline will purchase an extra 200 miles of U.S.-made steel to complete the recently approved oil project.
“’As a result, we require 200 miles of pipe for KXL’ from U.S. manufacturers, TransCanada spokesman Terry Cunha told reporters Monday. He was referring to the Canadian company’s decision to shift steel pipe originally meant for the Keystone to another project after the Obama administration rejected it in 2015.
“TransCanada had originally planned to use U.S. steel to build 50 percent of the Keystone. The additional steel pipe will up that percentage, Cunha said.”
This was no coincidence, either. President Trump has made it extremely clear to the captains of American industry that he would like for any and all projects to fall under consideration for using American-made materials first and foremost. The addition of this steel to the Keystone Pipeline fits very nicely within those wishes.
Trump’s campaign promise to bolster American industry played a huge role in the approval and continuation of the work being done not only on the Keystone XL Pipeline, but also on the more contentious Dakota Access Pipeline, both of which were on the receiving end of direct action from the President in February.
The Dakota Access Pipeline was the focus of several months’ worth of protests by leftists and conscripted First Nations People who were somehow convinced that the industrial pipeline would put their water sources in danger. Week after week, more rabble-rousers arrived at the site of construction to protest, often turning violent against the construction personnel who were on site, ready to build. In true liberal fashion, these agitators would harass construction employees to the point in which private security firms were hired. When these private security firms were forced by protesters to physically dissuade the dissenters, the cameras would begin to role, providing an extremely lopsided narrative for the mainstream media to pounce on.
Thankfully, President Trump was able to quell this despicably violent trickery with the stroke of his pen, sending the Dakota Access Pipeline construction into overdrive.
