Not Just Crass, Petty and Viscious

He's also a buffoon.
“Today, I’m proudly announcing six brand new initiatives to propel this new era of American energy dominance,” Trump told employees at the Department of Energy on Thursday.

Among those initiatives, Trump said, is his administration’s approval of the construction of a new pipeline to the United States’ southern neighbor, “which will further boost American energy exports,” Trump said.

“And that’ll go right under the wall, right? It’s going under. Right? Have it go down a little deeper in that one section, you know, a little like this. Right under the wall,” he continued, as the audience laughed.


After Trump finished speaking, the State Department announced the approval of three presidential permits. The New Burgos Pipeline ‒ to be built by NuStar Logistics, LP ‒ will deliver up to 108,000 barrels per day of refined petroleum across the US-Mexico border. The State Department also issued new permits for the existing Dos Laredos Pipeline, which crosses the border in Texas near Laredo, and the existing Burgos Pipeline, which crosses from Texas near Peñitas.


So why's the oil going to Mexico?
