(CNSNews.com) - Former Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday that the American people are feeling Biden economics at the pump with gas, but during the Trump administration, the United States had energy independence and became a net exporter of oil and natural gas for the first time in history.
She blamed Biden’s policies, saying that he undid Trump policies that were actually working out of spite, not because of a philosophical difference.
“It's a big hot mess, and policies have consequences. This is the president who on day one killed the energy pipeline in the country, then had some Russian energy collusion with Putin to make sure he approved the Nordstream 2 there,” Conway told Fox News’s “Hannity.”
These have consequences, because people are now feeling Biden economics at the gas pump and in the grocery cart, and the winter of discontent is coming. They project that our home heating costs will rise as much as 54 percent. The other thing to note here is that under President Trump we had energy independence, net exporter of oil and natural gas for the first time in our history.
Now in addition to the poor policies leading to higher costs for consumers, particularly middle-class and lower income consumers, we have on top of that $630 billion and $3.5 BIden-Bernie package to prop up the Green New Deal which nobody wanted last time. One more thing. When you think about energy Independence it also comes with jobs. It comes with things that are made in America.
We have enough energy under our feet and off our shores to be energy independent, but Joe Biden, he unravelled the Trump policy out of spite. There’s no clear rationale that there was a philosophical difference. It was Trump that, Trump this. And one last thing with the vaccine. President Trump’s administration under Operation Warp speed, we handed over 3 approved vaccines to biden/Harris. All they had to do was run a marketing campaign. That’s all they had to do.
We did the science part. They were approved and ready to go. 13 million Americans received the vaccine while Donald Trump was still in the White House including none other than Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. So they’ve hit a wall. His poll numbers have caught up with him. He’s under water on every metric.
As a pollster, we look at two things: personal attributes and performance metrics. People now say he doesn't care about people. He doesn't have the will to lead and he’s underwater on the economy, immigration, the southern border, Afghanistan and national security. They don't see him as competent commander-in-chief, and they don’t see him as a sensible domestic steward,
