President Donald Trump slams Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden during the final presidential debate over Biden’s previous remarks about his participation in fracking.
Biden responded to Trump’s comments and challenged him to prove his claims with video evidence — and the president did just that, according to The Daily Wire.
“We’re going to have the greatest economy in the world,” Trump said. “But if you want to kill the economy, get rid of your oil industry. And what about fracking? Now we have to ask him about fracking.”
“I have never said I oppose fracking,” Biden claimed.
“You said it on tape,” Trump fired back.
“I—show the tape, put it on your website,” Biden responded. “The fact of the matter is he’s flat lying.”
Within a matter of moments of the heated argument, Trump’s administration tweeted out a video of Biden making the remarks.
Even CNN backed Trump by saying he was telling the truth about Biden’s past comments about fracking, and the former Vice President was lying.
“In this case, Trump is correct,” fact-checker and Trump critic Daniel Dale said. “Biden did make anti-fracking comments during the Democratic primary in 2019 and 2020, and Trump was not lying.”
The Republican National Committee (RNC) slammed Biden in a statement following the conclusion of the presidential debate, saying, “President Trump dominated tonight’s debate by aggressively highlighting that he has accomplished more for the American people in the past 47 months than Joe Biden did in 47 years as a failed and corrupt career politician.”
“In addition to Biden’s now irrefutable corruption, President Trump was able to remind voters that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are running on the most extreme agenda in American history; an agenda that would implement the largest tax increase ever, end U.S. energy independence and pave the way for socialized medicine.”
“The debate stage showed the clear choice Americans face between Joe Biden’s corruption and far-left policies versus President Trump’s record of results for all Americans,” the statement concluded.
