Biden should be thanking Trump for this.
As you may have already heard, President Biden and his administration recently announced that they will tap into the United States Strategic Oil Reserves and release 50 million barrels of oil in a desperate attempt to lower gas prices which have reached a record high.
Now, former President Donald Trump just released a statement slamming President Biden over his decision to use America’s oil reserves which former President Trump was responsible for filling up in the first place.
Trump hammered Biden and told him what those oil reserves were supposed to be used for, which is not fixing his mistakes and lowering gas prices, but rather use for emergencies such as war.
In Trump’s statement geared towards Biden, Trump said, “For decades our country’s very important Strategic Oil Reserves were low or virtually empty in that no President wanted to pay the price of filling them up.”
Trump then said, “I filled them up three years ago, right to the top, when oil prices were very low. Those reserves are meant to be used for serious emergencies, like war, and nothing else. Now I understand that Joe Biden will be announcing an ‘attack’ on the newly brimming Strategic Oil Reserves so that he could get the close to record-setting high oil prices artificially lowered.”
He added, “We were energy independent one year ago, now we are at the mercy of OPEC, gasoline is selling for $7 in parts of California, going up all over the country, and they are taking oil from our Strategic Reserves. Is this any way to run a country?“
