Trump said:

On the same morning that the President was calling himself an environmentalist, it is being reported that he will sign an executive order advancing the Keystone XL and Dakota pipelines.

According to Bloomberg, “President Donald Trump intends to take action today to advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, according to a person familiar with the matter.”

This is a perfect example of the duplicitous behavior of the Trump administration. The president’s words mean nothing. If one wants to understand the true intentions of the Trump administration, watch their actions. For example, since taking office, Trump has held one single meeting with friendly union leaders that was notably missing any representation from the nation’s largest unions. In contrast, the president has held several meetings with CEOs.

Trump claims that his administration intends to give government back to the people, but he is spending most of his time meeting with heads of large corporations.

The President claims to be environmentalist, but he will sign an executive order advancing the construction of environmentally dangerous pipelines that will benefit energy companies, not the American people.

Trump is not an environmentalist. Someone who is interesting in protecting the planet would never say sure, I am environmentalist, but those regulations related to addressing climate change are out of control.

In the case of the Trump administration, actions really do speak louder than words. To understand their direction for the country watch what they do, not what they say.
