Donald Trump On Dakota Access Pipeline Investment

2 December 2016

President-elect Donald Trump is now on the record on the Dakota Access Pipeline and his investment. John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur, Lee Camp and Michael A. Wood, Jr. break down Trump’s DAPL comments on The Young Turks. Do you think it’s possible for Trump to have an unbiased opinion on the pipeline?

“Donald Trump has said he supports a controversial oil pipeline that runs next to a Native American reservation in North Dakota – a project that the president-elect is personally invested in.

A briefing from Trump’s transition team said that the real estate magnate supports the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline and that his backing “has nothing to do with his personal investments and everything to do with promoting policies that benefit all Americans”.

Financial disclosure forms released earlier this year show that Trump has a stake in Energy Transfer Partners, the Texas-based firm behind the pipeline, and Phillips 66, which will hold a share of the project once completed.

Trump’s investment in Energy Transfer Partners dropped from between $500,000 and $1m in 2015 to between $1,500 and $50,000 this year. His stake in Phillips 66, however, rose from between $50,000 and $100,000 last year to between $250,000 and $500,000 this year, according to the forms.”

US President-elect Donald Trump expressed his support for the completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) ahead of an evacuation order, due to go into effect on Monday, against thousands of people protesting the oil pipeline project: here.

Yesterday, Chief Judge for the District of North Dakota, Daniel L. Hovland, rejected a request for a temporary restraining order to prevent law enforcement agencies from using impact munitions against Dakota Access Pipeline protesters in the Oceti Sakowin camp in North Dakota: here.
