Trump has made it clear that he stands for moving business forward. Looking at his official platform, he made it clear that he intends to make full use of traditional resources, including the pipeline. America should not be dependent on foreign oil. Part of becoming self-sufficient includes finishing this pipeline.
The North Dakota protestors have a solid victory to help advance their cause in stopping the pipeline. This is will an enduring message to the Trump administration to rework the pipeline and it shows that peaceful demonstrations can be effective. The protestors were persistent and had a big impact with media support.
The court victory for North Dakota protesters will not be short lived with the incoming Trump administration. Court decisions are difficult to overturn, especially when the overturning would happen because of a new administration. A change in ruling would take a lot of time and effort, which is difficult when an administration is brand new. The North Dakota protester ruling will most likely stand as is for the foreseeable future.
No, the recent Court victory for the North Dakota protesters will not be short lived, even with the incoming Trump Administration. Trump and his people will likely try to overturn the Court decision out of greed and disrespect. However, this issue has become "huge" and too many people care about it.
