Obama Kills Keystone Pipeline – After Campaigning For It in 2012 Election
Barack Obama went to Oklahoma to promote the Keystone pipeline in 2012.
Obama said he was “making the pipeline a priority.”
But it was just another lie.
Obama also took credit for the oil boom in America.
The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.
Obama rejected the plan in 2011.
Then Obama vetoed legislation that approved construction of the Keystone XL pipeline in February 2015.
Today Barack Obama will announce he is killing the project.
