Trump takes aim at U.S. environmental regulations to boost oil sector

Trump said he would pull the United States out of the U.N. global climate accord, approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and rescind measures by President Barack Obama to cut U.S. emissions and expand protections for U.S. waterways.
