Biden Challenges Trump to Prove He’s Against Fracking With Video. Trump Just Produced It!
It’s a bit of a mystery to me why both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris keep lying about being opposed to fracking. Both of them have clearly, unequivocally said they want to ban it. There is video of it and it’s not hard to find. Yet, they keep lying about the subject. For example, last night during the debate, Trump and Biden had this exchange.
[1:24:47] Trump: So, it’s all a pipe dream, but you know what we’ll do? We’re gonna have the greatest economy in the world. But if you want to kill the economy, get rid of your oil industry. You want– And what about fracking?
[1:25:01] Welker: All right. Let me allow Vice President Biden to respond–
[1:25:04] Biden: I have never said I oppose fracking.
[1:25:06] Trump: You said it on tape.
[1:25:08] Biden: I did? Show the tape. Put it on your website.
[1:25:10] Trump: I’ll put it on.
[1:25:11] Biden: Put it on the website. The fact of the matter is he’s flat lying.
[1:25:15] Welker: Would you rule out banning fracking?
[1:25:17] Biden: I do rule out banning fracking because the answer we need– We need other industries to transition to get to, ultimately, a complete zero emissions by 2025. What I will do with fracking over time is make sure that we can capture the emissions from the fracking. Capture the emissions from gas. We can do that and we can do that by investing money into– It’s a transition to that.
[1:25:44] Welker: I have one more question–
[1:25:48] Trump: Excuse me. He was against fracking. He said it. I will show that to you tomorrow. ‘I am against fracking’, until he got the nomination, went to Pennsylvania than he said– You know what, Pennsylvania? He’ll be against it very soon because his party is totally against it.
[1:26:00] Biden: Fracking on federal Land, I said. No fracking or oil on federal land–
Joe Biden demanded that Trump “show the tape” and guess what? Trump delivered.
Since the press is almost indistinguishable from Joe Biden’s campaign spokesmen, maybe he feels like it doesn’t matter if he’s caught lying on video because they’ll just cover for him. It must be nice for him. It’s not so nice for the American people who can’t rely on getting honest information from the mainstream press.
