On Monday, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (R-ND) appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss the possibility of serving in the Trump administration and the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.
Over the weekend, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decided to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline beneath a Missouri River reservoir.
Lawrence Bossidy asked Heitkamp what her position on this decision was, and her general thoughts about Dakota Access.
“I just think that this fight is not winnable and we need to get down to doing things that will make a difference in the next generation,” Heitkamp told Bossidy.
Bossidy pressed Heitkamp on whether she was for or against the pipeline.
“I believe that the pipeline is going to be built,” Heitkamp said emphatically.
CNBC’s Joe Kernen asked Heitkamp if the Democrats’ support of somewhat radical energy policies has served the party well over the past eight years.
“I think when you look at it, it’s so critically important that we live in the real world and we not live in the world of ideology,” Heitkamp told Kudlow.
