Yesterday, in one of his many early actions to roll back Obama-era policies, President Donald Trump signed off on an executive action that gives government approval to continue the Dakota Access Pipeline.
President Trump also opened the door to building the Keystone XL pipeline (which Obama had rejected). The administration also ordered the EPA to put a hold on all the grants and contracts they give out, and stop its members from tweeting or talking to the press.
