Trump drains the swamp.

Trump busts a billionaire’s monopoly

(AP) For eight years, Barack Obama waged an open war against North Dakota. Obama’s billionaire buddy Warren Buffett owned the railroad that had a near monopoly on transporting oil out of the state. Obama kept pipelines from opening because it would ruin Buffett’s monopolistic environment.

I hope Buffett paid Obama well for services rendered.

But that swamp was just drained.

This is a biggie, doing something directly for the economy, the blue-collar workers and the trade deficit.  Proving that this time your vote made a difference.

The $3.8 billion pipeline — expected to be fully operating next month — opens up the possibility for North Dakota oil to be sold on the world market, where industry officials say it could earn several dollars more per barrel. Shippers also can save about $3 per barrel moving the oil by pipeline rather than using the mile-long trains that have carried North Dakota crude to the Gulf Coast since 2008, industry officials say.

Buffett pocketed $3 a barrel from transporting 1 million barrels of oil a day on his railroad.
Obama did not care about the environment or the danger of mile-long trains carrying crude oil. Obama was TCB — taking care of Buffett.
