    PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Keystone XL oil pipeline won’t use American steel in its construction, despite what President Donald Trump says.

    White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday that’s due to language in a presidential directive Trump issued in January. The directive applies to new pipelines or those under repair. Sanders said it would be hard to do an about-face on Keystone because it’s already under construction and the steel has been acquired.

    Trump said as recently as last week that Keystone and the Dakota Access pipeline must use American steel “or we’re not building one.”

    Wake Up Merica!

    “And since this one is already currently under construction, the steel is already literally sitting there, it would be hard to go back,” she said, referring to Keystone XL.

    I say "tough s***". Send the pipe that's sitting there back. That is..if it is our pipeline.
    Whose pipeline is it anyways?
    Who owns it?
    Who is paying for it?
    Plenty of people had investments in pensions....and things changed...they're not getting what they thought they'd get....
    these people should have to send the steel back..or let it sit and rust.....but they should be made to use American made steel....things change for us..things change for you...Welcome to our world..We don't always get what we expect, want, or pay for.

    If somehow our taxes are being used then I say use our steel. If Canadian taxes are also used then I say use ours here and theirs there. Indian and Italian steel is also used. They can use theirs in their own country.

    Doofus Don got it wrong again. Your supposed to listen to what he says not what is really happening, now if he could just stop those dam leaks..

    The ultimate commitment to America First would be to put those factories in inner cities across our country. Oh but then his friends would have to obey labor laws and pay a minimum wage. Ah just pull funding from the Department of Labor and deregulate it, ya that's it..

    I saw a news story say a year ago pipeline companies had miles of specialty piping/flanges and things ready for use when Obama finally put the stop to the project. It would probably bankrupt a lot of those companies.

    Calliing B.S. the Keystone is 1,200 miles. Like they have that kind of product on hand. and I'm sure it could be integrated.

    There's a lot of people who lost pensions and lost everything. Their children and grandchildren suffer too....They can suffer like the rest. Nobody cared. And I don't care about people who bought the stuff who put them in that position.

    We might not have the current capability to make all the different types of pipes and fittings. I don't see a problem with using Canadian steel, they have a hand in this project, and have a large steel industry.

    This shouldn't be an attack point, ford's stamping plant in Buffalo has German and Japanese presses in it. We don't have companies that make stuff this big anymore, there isn't enough demand. Same with the pipeline. Stop trying to cut industry off at the hamstrings, and the demand could return for us steel pipe, or large industrial presses.

    They couldn't have 1200 miles of pipeline on hand at warehouse sites? Never seen a pipeline project, huh?

    Fake News. Troll alert.
    I work in steel industry. All of our steel is from China right now. But once U.S. Steel and other companies get rolling again. It will be American steel. You need to resesrch before you post anymore false news.

    I'm sure there are MANY property owners who did not consent to some Oil Company laying pipe on their land.

    But somehow they were made to accept it.
    Seems to me that kind of taking of property was only for projects to benefit the public, not private industry.

    Well maybe a good liberal will get voted in and they will shut it down and have it torn up one day.
    Yeah that will create jobs won't it!

    The contracts for the steel was already written, but our Floridiot Libtard doesn't have enough business sense to understand that.

    Not hard to explain at all to someone with an open mind and a brain. (You don't qualify.)

    The contracts were already signed, the steel is already sitting there, and the American tax payers (not you) have already paid for the steel, so who would be stupid enough to send it back?

    It's pretty obvious that Trump wasn't aware that the steel was already there and already contracted from foreign steel companies.

    The future projects will be built with AMERICAN STEEL. The man has proven that he means what he says, and this is not any different.
