Washington Post 'Fact Check' Admits Biden Killed 11,000 Construction Jobs on Day One

The left-leaning Washington Post admitted Joe Biden killed 11,000 construction jobs by canceling the Keystone XL pipeline contract on his first day in office.

But the WaPo's "fact check" was a hit on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) who received “two Pinocchios” for highlighting the job losses.

However, because Cruz didn’t say jobs were “temporary” and not permanent, the outlet accused him of misleading the public.

Cruz responded to the Washington Post, noting that all construction jobs are in effect “temporary,” criticizing the outlet for depreciating such a loss of jobs.

“Cruz cited a real estimate of approximately 11,000 jobs, but he left out that they were all temporary,” the Post concluded.

“In the same report, the State Department said the Keystone XL pipeline, if built, would require only 35 to 50 permanent positions.”

“The missing context is key here, obscuring half the story. Cruz earns Two Pinocchios,” the report declared.

Cruz captioned the fact check:

“WaPo (Washington Post) confirms that YES, on his 1st day in office, Joe Biden destroyed 11,000 jobs (including 8,000 union jobs).

"But, it says, they’re construction jobs so are only temporary.”

“ALL construction jobs are temporary,” the Republican emphasized.

“Presidents still shouldn’t destroy them.”

Biden faced massive backlash from Canadian lawmakers over his move to rescind a permit for a pipeline to transport oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

“Biden took office on Wednesday and, as one of his first acts, rescinded approval for the Keystone XL pipeline that former President Donald Trump had green-lighted in 2017,” Tim Pearce reported.

“The pipeline has long been a target of environmental activists and Democratic politicians looking to stop the use of fossil fuels.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement:

“While we welcome the President’s commitment to fighting climate change, we are disappointed but acknowledge the President’s decision to fulfill his election campaign promise on Keystone XL."

“Canada is the single-largest supplier of energy to the United States, contributing to U.S. energy security and economic competitiveness, and supporting thousands of jobs on both sides of the border,” Trudeau added.

“Workers in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and across Canada will always have our support.”

“Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said he was ‘deeply disturbed’ by Biden’s decision to stop work on the $8 billion projects,” Pearce noted.

“Kenney had threatened legal action earlier in the week after reports of Biden’s intent to kill the pipeline surfaced.”

In true Democrat fashion, Biden warned America of a "deepening economic crisis" shortly after killing thousands of jobs.

According to the US State Department, canceling the Keystone Pipeline costs over 11,000 construction jobs and 42,100 jobs throughout the US during the construction process.

Neon Nettle reported Joe Biden and his administration faced their first major lawsuit following a series of crippling executive orders.
