Trump signs executive order allowing Dakota Access Pipeline to proceed, Standing Rock Tribe vows legal action

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday, allowing the Dakota Access Pipelines and Keystone Pipelines to proceed.

Both projects were effectively derailed after environmental activists pressured the Obama Administration into action.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has vowed to take legal action in wake of the executive order. According to The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe official twitter page, “Trump’s executive order on #DAPL- violates the law and tribal treaties. We will be taking legal action.”
