On June 9th, the company behind the Keystone Pipeline announced that they were backing out.
This came after Biden blocked the pipeline the first day he took office.
The company behind the Keystone XL Pipeline, which was blocked by the Biden administration earlier this year, has officially pulled out of the project.
TC Energy, which is based in Calgary, Canada, provided few details as to why it’s pulling out of the project, which was first proposed in 2008 and would carry hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil per day from Canada into the United States. The firm said construction activities were suspended on President Joe Biden’s first day in office on Jan. 20.
Now, we have this.
45th President Donald Trump released a statement on the pipeline cancelation.
Trump pointed out that the workers on the pipeline are now jobless.
He also took at the union that represented these workers.
They endorsed Joe Biden and of course, that cost him their jobs.
He called for the members of the union to vote them out of office immediately and to not pay their union dues.

The following is a statement from Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa on the issuance of an executive order by President Biden canceling the completion of construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which will affect 8,000 union jobs and members’ retirement and health benefits.
“The Teamsters strongly oppose yesterday’s decision, and we would urge the administration to reconsider it. This executive order doesn’t just affect U.S. Teamsters; it hurts our Canadian brothers and sisters as well who work on this project. It will reduce good-paying union jobs that allow workers to provide a middle-class standard of living to their families. America needs access to various forms of energy that can keep its economy running in the years ahead. This decision will hurt that effort.
The cancelation of the Pipeline has been a disaster.
One estimate found that Biden’s ending of the Pipeline killed more jobs in one day than any other day in history:
It has also tragically hurt small businesses and towns along the Pipeline:
