Call to Action: President Trump Says He has not Received One Phone Call Complaining of His DAPL Approval

February 8, 2017

Call to Action: Time to call the White House:  202-456-1111

WASHINGTON – ABC News has posted a video with President Donald Trump saying he has not received one phone call with anyone complaining about the Dakota Access pipeline. He maintains “everyone’s going to be happy in the end.”

Perhaps, he is not taking phone calls from the right people. Thousands of American Indians have expressed their opposition to the pipeline and have generated international attention by their water protests at Standing Rock. Perhaps, the president does not think the voices of American Indians matter.

It may be time for thousands of American Indians and their allies to call the White House to let the president exactly why they are opposed to the Dakota Access pipeline. Call the White House: 202-456-1111.

Below is a transcript of President Trump’s remarks:

“As you know I approved two pipelines that were stuck in limbo forever. I don’t it was controversial you know I broke the man. That’s one call from anybody saying. Oh that was terrible thing you did I haven’t had what. So it’s like bedroom right haven’t had one call from anybody. And you know. Lot of jobs and that keystone case we have potentially 32000 jobs. Almost immediately. And then as you know I didn’t cut Dakota pipeline. And nobody called. Because it was unfair years of getting approvals. Nobody showed up to find it. This company spends a tremendous hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars and that all of a sudden people are still defied. Left there to companies. And I think everyone’s going to be happy in the end okay.”
