Trump would ask TransCanada to reapply for Keystone XL if elected: campaign

Advertisement

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Donald Trump’s campaign says that if elected president he will ask Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. to resubmit its proposal for the stalled Keystone XL pipeline.

That detail was included in the highlights package distributed by his campaign for a major economic speech today, although the speech itself made no mention of the pipeline.

Reviving the project, which was rejected by U.S. President Barack Obama, has been Republican party policy — although Trump has occasionally suggested he might seek a deal that’s more financially beneficial for the U.S.

TransCanada has taken legal action against the U.S. government: it recently filed for NAFTA arbitration and is seeking $15 billion in damages, claiming the rejection was arbitrary and politically driven.

Trump’s speech included a massive array of tax reductions on everything from businesses to personal estates to child-care costs; reaffirmed his plan to renegotiate or walk away from NAFTA; and promised to repeal Obama’s climate-change regulations, withdraw from the global climate deal, and replace Obama’s landmark health reform.
