ON Friday the Senate’s top Republican said he asked President-elect Donald Trump to move swiftly in approving construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The project has drawn strong opposition from environmentalists.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he made the request during his Capitol Hill meeting with Trump on Thursday.
McConnell said, “That’s the kind of thing that I hope he’ll be looking at, and we’re helping him look at — things that he can do quickly on his own.”
During a late October campaign swing through Florida, Trump touted the stalled Keystone project, saying: “We’re going to approve energy infrastructure projects like the Keystone pipeline and many more.”
