Former President Donald Trump released a statement on Friday, noting the union that represents the workers on the Keystone XL Pipeline endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 election and are now out of jobs.

Biden was not shy about his plans to shut down the pipeline and said so multiple times on the campaign trail that he will put an end to the project on day one of his presidency.

The endorsement from the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipe-fitters came almost immediately after Biden and Kamala Harris accepted the Democratic nomination. Mark McManus, UA’s general president, acknowledged that his union doesn’t see eye to eye with Biden, but agreed with Biden’s call to invest millions in water infrastructure projects.

Biden said he was “deeply honored” to get the endorsement, adding, “I promise you this: if I’m elected, workers and unions will have the strongest friend they have ever had in the White House.”

“The union representing the great workers of the Keystone KL Pipeline endorsed Biden,” Trump said in his statement. “Now their workers have no jobs and the pipeline, which was well under construction (like the Southern Border Wall) has been shut down, with thousands of jobs lost and the company announcing yesterday that they are ‘permanently pulling out.'”

“You should vote those people out of office immediately and stop paying your union dues. A total waste of money,” Trump continued. “And I said it was going to happen before the 2020 Presidential Hoax!”

Trump’s statement follows the Canadian company’s announcement to cancel the $8 billion project after Biden denied a permit for the 2,000-mile pipeline that would have delivered crude from Canada’s Alberta oil sands to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

“TC Energy Corporation confirmed today that after a comprehensive review of its options, and in consultation with its partner, the Government of Alberta, it has terminated the Keystone XL Pipeline Project (the Project),” the company announced in a press release on Wednesday. “Construction activities to advance the Project were suspended following the revocation of its Presidential Permit on January 20, 2021. The Company will continue to coordinate with regulators, stakeholders and Indigenous groups to meet its environmental and regulatory commitments and ensure a safe termination of and exit from the Project.”

  1. I find it hard to believe that union workers are that stupid but apparently they are. The babbling returd in charge said he would cancel your jobs now you are jobless and standing there looking stupid.

  2. What is sad is that the majority of union membership has a herd mentality of listening to their union leadership. For whatever reason members only vote for their pockets, they don’t even take into consideration if the want to keep our country as a Republic or our Constitution. It’s not only follow the money of businesses/corporations if they want to keep our Republic and Constitution but also follow the money of unions as to who they support.

  3. The Union, like America, got what it voted for. It’s astonishing how short sighted, and myopic the American people actually are. To install a man in the White House who is unable to complete a coherent sentence and expect a positive outcome for the nation is the epitome of cutting one’s nose off to spite their face.

  4. Apparently, the unions acted stupidly and they expected their workers to act just as stupid and vote for that bumbling perverted scumbag.

  5. Only the very stupid people were dumb enough to vote for Biden… If the union membership voted for Biden they deserved to pay the price …

  6. Biden gave the bird to every oil worker on his first day. I would like to think that people who worked on that pipeline had enough sense not to vote for him. Leave the unions. They sure didn’t support the workers on this. If they did vote for him hey you knew he was going to do it.biden wants America to be dependent on other countries. I guess that’s his big kick back from them. A piece of trash.

  7. Most unions are democrat controlled
    Maybe the members will wake up SOON!
    After all membership is where the union boss make there salaries weather you work or not!
    Don’t be stuck on stupid…

  8. Biden is an asshole. Biden is a huge crook. And because of him he closed the Pipeline and left hundred of people out of jobs. And he denies that it was him.Biden needs to be impeached and remove him right away before our country goes broke.

  9. The Scranton Kid is for the working class what a bunch of BS& these stupid good for nothing unions believe them.Any buyers remorse now guys.All I can tell you is us Trump supporters told you so

  10. Joe’s a moderate! Joe’s for the working people! Joe’s for the middle class! Joe says you’ll get better paying jobs!! Well 5 months in, how’s that working for everyone?????

    • Cheatin’ China Joe is a hollowed-out, bought-and-paid-for, sock puppet! His only remaining talents in his dotage are the ability to mangle the words he’s supposed to parrot from teleprompter, and the ability to go off-script and offer creepy commentary on little girls in the audience.
