Sources confirmed the report to Fox News as well.
Per @johnrobertsFox "Sources confirm Pres Trump will sign executive orders to move forward with the Keystone XL and Dakota access pipelines"

President Trump’s executive actions will overturn the policy of the Obama administration, which sought to block the construction of these pipelines. The $3.8 billion project has been stalled for years. Conservatives argue that the pipeline’s construction will create jobs and provide a cheap and safe way to transport oil and natural gas across the country.
Lordy lord. Trump actually showed up & IS DOING AS PROMISED. Signing exec order today to take Keystone pipeline out of mothballs.

"Constant state of protest," huh? If that's so, the Left is going to guarantee President Trump's reelection in 2020.
