Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded President Obama Sunday evening for halting the Dakota Access Pipeline. Sanders, who has been an outspoken opponent of the pipeline, shared his message on Facebook. 'I appreciate very much President Obama listening to the Native American people and millions of others who believe this pipeline should not be built,' the post read. 'In the year 2016, we should not continue to trample on Native American sovereignty. We should not endanger the water supply of millions of people. We should not become more dependent on fossil fuel and accelerate the planetary crisis of climate change. Our job now is to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels, not to produce more greenhouse gas emissions.'
