January 24, 2017
WASHINGTON – At his press briefing today, January 23, 2017, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer suggested President Donald Trump will overturn the permit denial for the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) that the Obama administration issued on December 4, 2016.
“I’m not going to get in front of the President’s executive actions,” Mr Spicer said, “but I will tell you that areas like the Dakota and Keystone pipeline areas that we can increase jobs, increase economic grown, and tap into America’s energy supply. That’s something that he’s been very clear about.”
