In an earlier story, we covered the statement by Joe Biden that he would transition away from the oil industry.
This is a move that would cost millions of jobs.
Biden, however, also dared Trump to produce proof that Joe Biden would ban fracking, a statement Biden has denied he ever said… and Trump did.
The Video Tells the Story
I have long-maintained that Joe Biden loves to tell people what they want to hear… but this time it is coming back to bite him in the tail.
After Joe Biden, again, said he would not ban fracking, he dared Trump to produce the video, and here it is…

Sean Hannity also covered this in more detail after the debate…
The blatant lie by Biden was so bad, even CNN was forced to fact-check him and call him out on this, albeit with a cheap shot at Trump.
CNN’s Daniele Dale stated, “So, in this case, Trump is correct. Biden did make anti-fracking comments during the Democratic primary in 2019 and 2020, and Trump was not lying.”
Dale should look over the tape last night because the person, by far, with the most Pinocchios was Joe Biden.
Millions of Jobs
Like the oil industry that Biden wants to end, the fracking industry is responsible for millions of jobs in this country.
Together, the two industries within the energy sector account for more than five percent of the entire United States workforce.
And, as is oil, fracking impacts numerous battleground states. Among them are:
- West Virginia
Between oil and fracking, Biden has threatened the livelihood of virtually every battleground state.
That should be game, set, match for Trump, but in today’s political climate, you just never know.
