Speaking at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump said:
- the Biden administration has been negotiating with OPEC and Russia
- Now we're not energy independent
The US does not participate in OPEC talks, but Washington has expressed support for the negotiations.
Trump also criticized Biden for allowing the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project to go ahead, and laughed at claims of reported Russian involvement in the Hunter Biden laptop hack.
«Russia did it again», Trump said, pointing out that «it's always Russia» because «they are getting rich from China» but not from Russia.
Trump also criticized the Green New Deal on climate change.
- they want the Green New Deal
- it’s Green New Bulls***. That’s what it is! It's bulls***
Instead it outlines the broad principles of a plan to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the US economy by 2030.
In its current form, the Green New Deal is a non-binding resolution and the costs of the project are unclear.
