President Donald Trump’s actions to speed up approval of two oil pipelines over objections of environmental activists are needed to create jobs and bolster US national security, House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Trump signed executive orders earlier on Tuesday that would permit both projects to go forward, linking both to campaign pledges to invest in US infrastructure and to undo excessive regulatory actions of the Obama administration.

"Thanks to President Trump’s executive order, the Keystone pipeline and the Dakota Access pipeline can finally be built," Ryan stated. "These pipelines will strengthen our energy supply and help keep energy costs low for American families."

Ryan also said that construction of the two pipelines would boost the US economy by creating thousands of good paying jobs.

Former President Barack Obama rejected the proposed Keystone pipeline in 2015, arguing that the project to bring oil from Canada to refineries on the US Gulf of Mexico coast would harm global efforts to cut carbon emissions from fossil fuels that are believed responsible for global warming.

Obama also halted work on the Dakota Access pipeline, which would carry oil through four US states, following protests by Native Americans as well as environmental activists that at times turned violent.
