Biden Scoffs At Suggestion That He’s Tapping U.S. Oil Reserves For Political Reasons Before Midterms (VIDEO)

Joe Biden is tapping America’s oil reserves (again) just three weeks before the 2022 midterm elections.

Many have suggested that he is doing this to artificially drive down the price of gas for purely political reasons, in the hopes that it will help his party in November.

He was asked about it this week and scoffed at the suggestion.

“What is your response to Republicans who say you are only doing this SPR release to help Democrats in the midterms?” the reporter asked.

“Where have they been the last four months? That’s my response,” Biden said, scoffing.

“Is it politically motivated, sir, three weeks before the midterms?” another reporter asked.

“No, it’s not,” Biden said, sounding irritated. “Look, it makes sense. I’ve been doing this for how long now? It’s not politically motivated at all.

He also claimed that his actions over recent months have kept gas prices lower than they would be otherwise.

Biden has no credibility on this issue at all.

He is trying to get rid of oil completely. He has said so.
