USA: ‘No health problems with leaking’ — South Dakotans on Trump's side despite oil spill

Residents of Amherst, Marshall County expressed optimism on Saturday despite the recent Keystone Pipeline leakage that has marred the state's landscape with 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) of Canadian crude oil. The leakage comes days before regulators in neighbouring Nebraska will be deciding upon the Keystone XL pipeline proposal. However, the spillage has done little to deter locals who... Еще voiced their support to Trump's energy policies and the XL pipeline. «You know they never found any health problems with it leaking, they clean it all up and that and take care of it. No difference than spilling oil or gas on yourself, if you work on machinery or anything,» one resident, John Abraham, said. Another, Keith Holland, said that the authorities «gotten [sic] to the situation really quick here, and hopefully they can get it all contained.» This is the biggest oil spill that South Dakota has witnessed. In 2016, the state saw a leak of some 16,000 gallons (400 barrels).
