Gas prices are hitting record highs.
Joe Biden is trying to duck responsibility.
And now Donald Trump hit Joe Biden with a reality check on gas prices that obliterated Democrats.
In a podcast interview with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Donald Trump slammed Joe Biden for causing high gas prices and bungling the situation with Russia.
Trump blasted Biden for lifting sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which Trump said during his presidency would draw Europe into a close relationship with Russia that Vladimir Putin would exploit.
Critics contend that Biden lifting these sanctions last year gave a green light to Putin to invade Ukraine by removing economic disincentives.
“There was never anybody tougher on Russia than I was,” Trump stated. “And I would say that Putin would, if he was being honest, he would say that the sanctions I put on — I was the one that ended Nord Stream. There was never anybody even close. I mean, Nord Stream 2 was the biggest thing. Nobody ever even heard of it until I came along and complained. And then I shut it down, and there was never anything so big that happened to Russia than shutting down Nord Stream 2. And then Biden came in and he opened it up almost immediately. I couldn’t believe it.”
Trump added that when he left office, America was energy independent for the first time in nearly 75 years.
Joe Biden threw that all away by clamping down on domestic energy production as part of his insane Green New Deal agenda.
“And now we are where we are. It’s a disgrace. The other thing we are, and we’re just a little while ago, energy independent. We were producing more energy by far than Russia or Saudi Arabia. We were going to be double the size of both in a very short period of time, probably within 12 months. But we were energy independent for the first time in more than 72 years. And that was a killer for Russia because we brought the price of energy down,” Trump declared.
Trump explained that low oil prices hurt Putin as energy forms the foundation of Russia’s economy.
Lower energy prices mean less money flowing into Putin’s coffers.
“We were down at $30 a barrel, $32 a barrel, $40 a barrel. And actually much less than that for a period of time. And nobody had ever seen anything. And that was certainly tough for Russia and other countries because they had to go out and they had to compete with those prices. And now they’re making a fortune with what’s going on, and we’re buying energy from Russia,” Trump added.
Joe Biden’s policies drove up the price of gasoline and enabled Vladimir Putin.
It was the worst of all worlds.
