The 36-year-old man was described as being from "the former Yugoslavia" and living in the nearby city of Wuppertal. He suffered serious injuries and was being treated in a hospital.

In one of his first decisions as president, Donald Trump invited the Keystone builder, TransCanada, to resubmit its application to construct and operate the pipeline.

They would target community development block grants and some public housing money, with the aim of helping offset some of the $54 billion increase in defense spending that President Donald Trump is requesting.
