Bold Alliance president Jane Kleeb appeared on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on March 4, to discuss President Trump’s lie that he would only allow U.S.-manufactured steel to be used on all U.S. pipelines, such as the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline he took action to attempt to fast-track.

The Trump Administration reneged on this promise with a statement saying that since KXL is already “under construction,” it does not have to use U.S. steel. The false statement that KXL is “already under construction” does not obscure the fact that KXL steel that has already been manufactured was sourced from outside the U.S., from countries including India, and a Canadian firm owned by a Russian oligarch with close ties to Putin.
