In the second presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Biden said he would “transition away” from the oil industry if he were elected. This comment landed Biden under fire as such a move would result in thousands of jobs lost.
Now, he’s claiming that he never said that he wanted to transition from the oil industry. During an interview with NBC 5 DFW, Biden outright lied in an attempt to help his cause in Texas and other energy states. He claimed he was just talking about doing away with oil subsidies. However, the GOP spokesperson, Liz Harrington, has the video.
Biden also responded to a question about the type of effort that his campaign was making in the state during the final week of campaigning.
He was talking about himself and his running mate, Kamala Harris, and his wife Jill. But confused Joe also spoke of “Doug Emhoff, Kamala’s wife.”
“Well, we put a major effort into Texas to begin with—eight days to go, uh, and, uh—the Lone Star State has a shot of becoming blue again,” Biden said. “You know, uh, we have 17 battleground states across the country and we’re not losing focus on securing, uh, uh, the many pathways to 270.”
“But my wife Jill, as you know, and Doug Emhoff, uh, Kamala’s wife, are there,” Biden continued.
After Biden forgot President Donald Trump’s name and referred to him as “George” twice the other day when talking about serving four more years, the media tried to spin it that he was talking to George Lopez, who was the interviewer.
