A Native American tribal leader is requesting a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump to talk about a decision on the oil pipeline in North Dakota.

FOX's Tonya J. Powers has details:

Standing Rock Sioux chairman Dave Archambault wants to meet with the incoming President to educate him about the Army Corps' decision to look for an alternate route for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

He's not the only one that wants to talk to him.

The Trade Association representing the country's oil and natural gas industry is urging President-elect Trump to approve the pipeline when he takes office.

The route was supposed to go underneath a Missouri River reservoir that the Standing Rock Sioux tribe said would compromise its water supply.

The pipeline developer calls the decision politically motivated.
