Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge argued that the Biden administration’s deal with Germany over the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline threatens “America’s energy independence,” on “Fox & Friends First” Friday. The deal comes with criticism over Biden’s decision to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline.
US, GERMANY THREATEN RUSSIA WITH SANCTIONS IF NORD STREAM 2 PIPELINE IS USED AS A ‘WEAPON’
LESLIE RUTLEDGE: I would much rather of heard President Biden and Jen Psaki say that ‘no we are not going to shut down the Keystone pipeline, we’re going to let the Keystone pipeline here in the United States allowed to operate but unfortunately president Biden was more interested in shutting down American energy while allowing Russian gas to be pumped into Germany.
It makes absolutely no sense and threatens America’s energy independence. It is shocking to see the Biden administration take not really anti-American but anti-American jobs steps.
