Former Keystone pipeline worker rips Biden after comments on oil production
President Biden ‘speaks nonsense’ when talking about climate agenda, energy policy: Brian Brenberg
Fox News contributor Brian Brenberg and Marco Trends Advisors founding partner Mitch Roschelle reacts to President Biden’s announcement of an additional release from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
FIRST ON FOX: A former Keystone XL pipeline welder sharply criticized President Biden after the White House announced new measures intended to drive gasoline and energy prices down on Wednesday.
"I don't know how he gets away with keep saying that he doesn't have anything to do with [high gas prices] when they've got everything to do with it," Neal Crabtree told FOX Business in an interview.
Crabtree — a member of an Arkansas pipeliners' union who had worked on the Keystone XL project in Nebraska — and hundreds other workers were laid off hours after the president took office on Jan. 20, 2021. Shortly after his inauguration, Biden canceled the federal permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that would have transported 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada to Texas.
Biden's executive order nixing the pipeline stated that the U.S. would prioritize the "development of a clean energy economy" instead of fossil fuel production.
