WATCH: GOP Senator Dems Bombing Truth Oppose Biden Blame For High Gas Prices, Inflation

A top Republican senator sent Democrats on a mission Sunday for trying to debunk inflation and soaring gas prices from President Trump’s economic policies. President Joe Biden.

Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming ABC News interviewed George Stephanopoulos, dismissing the host after he mentioned that Democrats were trying to place blame for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Well, Joe Biden can’t hide the fact that he’s the president of high gas prices,” Barrasso said.

“And they’re looking for anyone to blame, whether it’s Putin, whether it’s the Republicans, whether it’s the energy companies, whether it’s COVID,” he continued.

“Democrats have a huge problem with 40-year high inflation, the highest gas prices ever,” he added, noting that gasoline prices and overall inflation have been steadily rising since. Former President Donald Trump leaves office.

“When Joe Biden took office, the price of gas was $2.38 a gallon. Last year, Americans paid $1,000 more for energy than they did the year before,” said Senator Wyoming.

“And in last week’s poll, 70% of Americans said that America’s oil and gas is more and less focused on climate,” he noted.


Here’s a partial transcript of the rest of the conversation:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let’s talk about the war in Ukraine. What should the US do right now that it’s not doing?

BARASSO: Well, first of all, you just got Senator Durbin. He and I were in Ukraine together in 2014, the day Russia took Crimea.

There is currently a bipartisan group of senators on the border between Poland and Ukraine. There is a committed, bipartisan group in Washington committed to helping heroic Ukrainians. So proud of President Zelenskyy and the courage he has shown. And, in Congress, we’re trying to get the administration of the government to such an extent that we feel we’ve filled the void in a bipartisan manner.

The president had to be pushed and pulled to where he is today. It was Congress that introduced sanctions, put a ban on Russian oil, brought in weapons and all the big aid package that I voted for a week or two ago, $13 billion. . So far, the administration has only announced $1 billion of that. And if – as President – I think if they had implemented more sanctions, we might not have been in this situation if they had implemented sanctions before the tanks started. roll the wheel.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Senator, one –

BARASSO: President Biden is going to NATO this week. He – he will – he will join NATO this week. And if he wants to lead from the front and the US to lead from the front instead of from the back, there are, in my opinion, three specific things that he needs to do at NATO this week.

STEPHANOPOULOS: What are the three specifics?

BARASSO: Well, number one, he needs to tell NATO that we are going to give the Ukrainian people in general things that they know how to use, whether it’s drones, planes, systems. rocket. Second, he must say that he will travel from Brussels to NATO’s eastern front to demonstrate NATO’s resolve and US commitment. And, third, he needs to tell the people of Europe, who are really in a tough spot about energy and their dependence on Russian energy, that we’re going to increase exports. Liquefied natural gas from the US to them. .

Even Germany has brought up the fact that they have said that, look, energy security, George, is far more important than climate fanaticism. The president needs to take the lead by saying, we’re going to increase oil and natural gas production in the United States, we’re going to send it to you and we – that’s the thing – all the leadership is going for. . I have legislation, in a bipartisan manner, to make that possible. WATCH: GOP Senator Dems Bombing Truth Oppose Biden Blame For High Gas Prices, Inflation
