Former President Donald J. Trump has recently weighed in on Biden’s devastating decision to release an enormous amount of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in order to reduce escalating gasoline prices.
Unfortunately, Trump’s assessment is dire in nature, as he believes that the Biden administration is likely to run out of oil after tapping emergency reserves, which are not intended for political expedience.
According to CNN, the Biden administration will apparently be releasing up to 1 million barrels of oil per day from the strategic reserves over the coming months before the midterm elections.
The predominant reason that the Biden administration will be able to free up so many barrels of oil can be attributed, ironically, to the efforts of Trump while he was president.
“After fifty years of being virtually empty, I built up our oil reserves [over the course of] my administration, and low energy prices, to 100 percent full,” Trump declared in an official statement.
“It’s called the Strategic National Reserves, and it hasn’t been full for many decades,” Trump continued, adding that “in fact, it’s been mostly empty.”
In November, Biden tapped the strategic reserves for roughly 60 million barrels of oil, which is known as the largest release from the reserve in American history.
“[The Democrats] will soon bring it down to empty again,” Trump asserted, “it just never ends!”
