Ron DeSantis: Biden Will 'Fist Bump' The Saudis Can't Bother Making Oil At Home
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis cracked down on Biden's little fist bump with Saudia Arabia. Biden traveled to the sketchy country to beg them to produce more oil to help bring down the price at the pump. However, Biden refuses to drill for more oil here at home. DeSantis made sure to slam the loon-in-chief during a presser Tuesday:
“How come it’s wrong to produce our own oil and gas here, but you can go to Saudi Arabia and fist bump to try to get it from Saudi?” DeSantis asked during Monday’s press conference. “I mean, it makes no sense that we wouldn’t do it. We have opportunities here to be energy independent and not have to worry about any of these other countries. And yet they’re intentionally not doing it and you can’t run a modern economy on windmills. You just can’t do it.”
“And so now we’re in a situation where they’re bragging that gas has gone down over the last however many weeks, it’s still over four bucks! Like I had never seen it over $4 in my whole life living here,” DeSantis continued. “It’s just when you’re cranking the printing presses, you’re making energy more expensive. You know, that creates an upward pressure on all of this stuff. And so the acceleration from May to June that we saw at the end of June, not only was — they said it wouldn’t happen, then they said it was a blip, and they said it would peak soon. It still didn’t peak even after that. And so that’s really making it difficult for a lot of people, you know, to make ends meet.
DeSantis added that any gains that people may come by in their personal finances are likely “wiped out immediately with the Bidenflation.”
For once the media didn't protect Biden after his fist bump with the Saudi crown prince but then again, Democrats are trying to block him from running in 2024 so he isn't privy to the media mobs protection anymore.
