Trump on Monday false claimed during remarks to business leaders in Tokyo that construction for the controversial pipeline is underway, even though the project hasn't found buyers yet.
With a global climate change summit looming, so are fights over Obama proposals.
"The pipeline would not make a meaningful long-term contribution to our economy," the president said.
The decision is expected to lead to the project's rejection by the Obama administration.
The president has increasingly signaled the $8 billion pipeline may not be approved.
A delay would almost certainly hand the decision for the $8 billion project to a future president.
She called the pipeline a “distraction.”
The controversial project now awaits an administration decision on whether to permit or deny it.
The temporary injunction was prompted by a lawsuit from 70 landowners who don't want the pipeline on their property.
A final decision from the President could come as early as February.
The Nebraska Supreme Court's decision reversed a lower court that had blocked the proposal and cleared the way for a U.S. State Department ruling on the plan.
