Bismarck- Donald Trump pledges complete U.S. energy independence. Further he wants to put the focus on putting workers before regulations. This message was delivered to a crowd who are eager to make the Bakken great again.
Trump told 7,000 people at Williston Basis Petroleum Conference that his policies on energy will put drilling rigs and people back to work.
“Under my presidency, we’ll accomplish a complete American energy independence. Complete,” said Trump, prompting cheers from the crowd that lined up for blocks to get into the Bismarck Event Center.
“North Dakota, you brought us over the line folks,” he said. “I will always remember that.”
“Costly regulation makes it harder and harder to turn a profit,” Trump said. “If crooked Hillary Clinton is in charge, things will get much worse, believe me.”
Trump said he has a 100-day action plan, which includes destroying all of Obama’s executive actions. He specifically mentioned repealing the Waters of the U.S. rule and canceling the Paris climate agreement.
Trump also said he would approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, but said the U.S. should get a significant chunk of the profits.
In conclusion… Whether you like Donald Trump or hate him, at least he is talking about what he will do to help America become energy independent. It is crazy to send our petro dollars to those who promise to destroy us.
