President Trump is considering signing executive orders that will give states less power when refusing pipelines. He wants there to be more oil and gas pipelines in the US to give America more power.
Trump wants America’s “energy dominance” to continue with pipelines over the US to get more oil and gas. Trump is upset with the fact that Russia has become more powerful over the gas industry. The only country more powerful than Russia is Saudi Arabia.
Russia also has gained more power in Europe through its gas connections, which come
from state-run Gazprom. Though the Trump Administration wants Europe to buy from America, it is likely that America will only play a small part in Europe’s gas and oil industry. Most American oil companies have been targeting Asian countries and given Europe up to Russia.
