Remember when Trump warned everyone that Joe Biden would kill American energy jobs? Here it comes.
Joe Biden is apparently preparing to shut down the Keystone pipeline immediately after taking office.
How many Americans will be out of a job as a result?

Biden To Shut Down Keystone Pipeline “On Day One”
Joe Biden has added one more thing to his growing list of “day one” objectives after taking office. (How much work are they planning on dumping on this guy’s plate? He’s not a spring chicken anymore.
Just saying…) Despite not uttering a peep about this on the campaign trail and repeatedly promising the voters in Pennsylvania that he wasn’t going to totally eliminate fossil fuels, Biden plans to rescind the construction permit for the Keystone XL pipeline on Wednesday.
The number of jobs this will furlough, not to mention the hundreds of millions of dollars already invested in the project that could now be simply wasted, staggers the imagination.
Here’s more from CBC News:
U.S. president-elect Joe Biden has indicated plans to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit via executive action on his first day in office, sources confirmed to CBC News on Sunday.
A purported briefing note from the Biden transition team mentioning the plan was widely circulated over the weekend after being shared by the incoming president’s team with U.S. stakeholders.
The words “Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit” appear on a list of executive actions supposedly scheduled for Day 1 of Biden’s presidency.
Is fracking going to be next on the chopping block?
Biden swore up and down that he wasn’t going to ban fracking. Does anyone believe that?
