President Trump said Wednesday that he wants to see job growth like “never seen before” from energy development on tribal lands.
Tribal lands “have rich natural resources that stand to benefit your people immensely,” but government restrictions and regulations have prevented the tribal nations from tapping into that wealth, Trump said.
“For too long the federal government has put up restrict[ions] and regulations that put this energy wealth out of reach, just totally out of reach,” Trump said.
“These infringements on tribal sovereignty are deeply unfair to Native Americans and Native American communities who have been denied access to the energy and wealth that they have on their own lands,” Trump said.
“Many of our states have also been denied access to the energy resources their lands that could bring greater wealth to their people and to our whole nation.”
