Trump's great start: Keystone, #DAPL to move forward; federal hiring freeze
Later today the president will sign a couple of executive orders that will kickstart the construction of the Dakota Access and Keystone pipelines. On the latter, Barack Obama dithered on it for seven years before predictably doing what his millionaire environmentalist donors wanted. Yesterday Trump signed an executive order calling for a hiring freeze for federal workers--which excludes the military.
Already today Trump told Detroit automakers that he will ease up on regulations as he encourages the Big Three to build plants and of course create jobs.
