WASHINGTON– White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday confirmed that Joe Biden will move forward with his controversial plans to end fossil fuels despite record setting high gas prices.
“We don’t need to” drill more oil in the US Karine Jean-Pierre said after Fox News journalist Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre why the US isn’t drilling for more oil.
“The president once said he’s going to end fossil fuel. Is that now off the table,” Doocy asked.
“No. We are going to continue to move forward…” Jean-Pierre responded.
During his presidential campaign Biden promised to once and for all end the fossil fuels industry.
“No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill. Period.” Biden said on the campaign trail in 2020.
