South Dakota Keystone Workers Who Lost Jobs Because Of Biden: ‘They Are Playing With Our Lives’

Joe Biden has been president for barely two weeks and he has already destroyed thousands of jobs in the energy sector.

He is so beholden to the climate change obsessed left, that he would rather destroy people’s lives than stand up for what’s right.

These workers, who did nothing wrong, are starting to speak out.

The Washington Examiner reports:

On the day President Biden was inaugurated in Washington, D.C., Laurie Cox wept. They weren’t tears of joy.

News had spread that morning that the incoming president would be pulling the plug on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. For Cox, the owner of the two-story Stroppel Hotel in Midland, South Dakota, news of a shutdown also meant her business would take a major hit.

“I had a real gut-sinking feeling and was watching little snips of the news and Facebook to see what was going to happen after the inauguration,” she told the Washington Examiner.

A few hours later, when news broke that Biden had revoked the pipeline’s presidential permit, Cox’s fear came into focus.

“It hit me like a ton of bricks,” she said. “I was in shock for three days.”…

For Trudy Flesner, the whole situation has played out like a bad case of deja vu…

Flesner blames an anti-Trump movement for the cancellation of the XL pipeline and told the Washington Examiner she believes Biden killed the project as political payback.

“Anything Trump has done, [Biden] wants to undo,” she said. “They are totally turning the tables on us.”

Flesner fears the deepening beltway divide in Washington will continue to take a toll on South Dakotans and said “clueless” politicians are playing with people’s lives.

This move by Biden is going to affect other businesses and jobs in the area as well. It’s a ripple effect.

Joe Biden is destroying American jobs on purpose.

It’s a disgrace.
