Donald Trump Releases Energy Plan

Posted: May 27, 2016 12:20 PM

Donald Trump has released his energy plan, dubbing it an "America First Energy Plan" that focuses on fossil fuels, fracking, and the Keystone Pipeline. He claims that his plan will focus on ensuring that regulations will be good for the American worker. Trump praised North Dakota as an area that has been revitalized due to increased energy production.

Here is my 100-day action plan:

  • We’re going to rescind all the job-destroying Obama executive actions including the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.
  • We’re going to save the coal industry and other industries threatened by Hillary Clinton’s extremist agenda.
  • I’m going to ask Trans Canada to renew its permit application for the Keystone Pipeline.
  • We’re going to lift moratoriums on energy production in federal areas
  • We’re going to revoke policies that impose unwarranted restrictions on new drilling technologies. These technologies create millions of jobs with a smaller footprint than ever before.
  • We’re going to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs.
  • Any regulation that is outdated, unnecessary, bad for workers, or contrary to the national interest will be scrapped. We will also eliminate duplication, provide regulatory certainty, and trust local officials and local residents.
  • Any future regulation will go through a simple test: is this regulation good for the American worker? If it doesn’t pass this test, the rule will not be approved.

Trump emphasizes that the plans put forth by Hillary Clinton will harm the American economy and result in massive job loss.
