The Wall Street Journal: Rolling back restrictions, Trump touts new age of ‘energy dominance’

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump declared a new age of “energy dominance” by the U.S. on Thursday as he outlined plans to roll back Obama-era restrictions and regulations.

In a speech at the Energy Department, the president promised to expand the country’s nuclear energy sector and to increase liquid-natural-gas exports. He also vowed to open up more federal lands and offshore sites to oil and gas drilling.

“The golden era of American energy is now under way,” Trump said. And I’ll go a step further: the golden era of America is now under way. Believe me.”

Trump also said his administration has approved the construction of an additional oil pipeline to Mexico.
