President Biden Undercuts American Energy and Legitimizes a Murderer in a Single Fist Bump
Pasco, WA: Veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) has released the following statement on President Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia and his meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Tiffany Smiley said: “Today’s fist bump with the Saudi Crown Prince was an absolute disgrace that legitimized a murderer. We have an energy crisis in this country thanks to Joe Biden and Patty Murray’s policies. Washingtonians have a choice to make: to vote for someone who will take on the root issues of this crisis or to re-elect someone who helped cause this crisis. From the start of my campaign I have been advocating for energy policies that adopt an all-of-the-above approach to America’s energy needs to provide economic stability and national security.”
Candidate Joe Biden promised two things: (1) transition away from the oil and gas industry and (2) make Saudi Arabia a pariah. Because President Biden kept that first promise, he’s now had to break the second. With Washingtonians being crushed by $5 per gallon gas, Joe Biden is begging the country he promised to make a pariah to produce more oil. By squandering America’s energy independence and being unwilling to adopt an all-of-the-above approach to energy policies, he’s not only made families suffer at the pump; he’s making America look foolish to the rest of the world. And three-decade incumbent Patty Murray has been right by his side, voting against the Keystone Pipeline and against sanctions on Russian energy. That is the embodiment of a career politician who has been in D.C. too long!”
