Something I actually expected from Trump.

Business is business.

Nothing to do with it? Reports are in that he's has money invested somewhere tied to these companies and, something else, oh yeah, he's the President Elect who just came out supporting the pipeline!

How are you incapable of understanding that?

Pretty much it's really that cut and dry.

Now that Donald Trump has said that he supports construction of the pipeline, will the 2,100 military veterans in this article perhaps feel uncomfortable by helping to block the pipeline's construction?

Veteran's build shelters, and will act as "human shields" to protect protestors: www.msn.com...

It is not on Sioux land. It is on private property. It is not going over rivers, but under them.

The tribe wanted $35 million to run through their land. The company decided to go around their land and on private property. Then the protests began.

Well, I do not agree with Trump on this issue. He is still the president elect and he is going to be president soon. That does not mean I have to agree with everything he does though. He will have my respect as president when he gets into his job.

I didn't agree with a lot of what Obama did either but he is president of this country right now. I would even have respected Hillary as president if she got elected even though I don't like the way she deceives people. At this time I feel Trump was the better choice for president.

Okay? SMH. Same with Bush and his 9/11 "Patriot Act", etc.,BS?

Will you respect him if he carries on with the repercussions these people are going through for standing up to their plight when Trump becomes a POTUS supporting the pipeline?

That's nice when he attacked me in a similar fashion neither did he have facts anymore than anyone else. Speaking of facts...SMH(see other replies and questions)

You need a safe space too?

Whoever sits in the office as president is our president. I will respect the president, I always have. It does not mean I will agree with the actions of the president though. We should have insisted on better candidates from both the major parties.

Why does it matter? He is president elect now. Unless you know something everyone else doesn't.

Unthinking conservative/ Republican is much better?

Both sides are Falling for the same things. Now that Trump won people are going to sleep on issues they would have problems with if Hillary won.

Good go.

When you figure out what you are talking about clue the rest of us in because it has nothing to do with my comment as a response to your post.

Map of Current Pipelines in US.


Yep, they are all over the place. I am sure regulations are much more stringent today though.


Take a look at your map, and then this one:





This image displays the number of “Crude Oil Pipeline Incidents” from 2010-2015. According to Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety, “these spills and ruptures released over 7 million gallons of crude [oil],” with individual leaks ranging from a few to thousands of gallons each.

Well, of course he supports it.

He's invested in it.



According to his Public Financial Disclosure Report, Trump has investments worth between $500,000 and $1 million in Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners, whose subsidiary, Dakota Access, is building the four-state crude oil pipeline.

From the looks of that incident map, a couple more spills won't matter much. The environmentalists should probably focus on shutting down the existing lines that generated those hundreds of spills. IF they REALLY care, that is.
