The Keystone Pipeline has leaked 210,000 gallons of oil onto agricultural lands in South Dakota.

The Obama Administration rejected the pipeline, but the Trump Administration gave it the go-ahead.  State officials claim that they don't believe the leak polluted any surface water bodies or drinking water systems.  How about the crude oil seeping into the ground?

    I wonder what the idiot in charge will say about that pipeline now?
    And what will the fallout be from all the damage?

    I bet you are right. 
    He will want to sweep this under the carpet ASAP.

    Simply disheartening for all those people that have to live with it.  

    Big business first.  Every day people last.

    That is part of what drives this man imho.  So childish.  He gets off on rallying his base that had a blind hatred of Obama.  It simply doesn't seem to matter what those consequences will be in the long run.

    I truly hope midterm elections will take away some of his power to do more damage.

    I just hope that if enough things that he has done backfire on him, people will stop supporting him.

    These blind supporters need to feel it in their pockets before they may question things.

    And that will happen. He is not loyal to anyone.

    Unfortunately, there is no shortage of blind support.

    I hope so, too, but I'm not sure his base will come to their senses.

    Doesn't surprise me that this has happened. It was inevitable. Dosn't surprise me that Trump gave the go ahead. Why would he care?  Sad

    I agree and I also think that if Obama had approved it, he would have said he didn't.

    You are right about that.
    He does that with everything else.

    Donald can always throw some paper towels at the problem, after all if it works for the damage done by a hurricane it should do just fine for an oil spill.

    Isn't that how Jed Clampett got rich?  Tapping into an oil pipeline, and claiming it was his?
