WASHINGTON—United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) yesterday joined The Ingraham Angle on Fox News to discuss President Joe Biden’s war on the oil and gas industry and his destructive America Last policies.
Hagerty on the Biden Administration’s anti-freedom agenda: “Well, it’s the Democrat playbook. Again, as you say, they delight in taking our freedom, our Liberty. I think that’s why you see [President Volodymyr] Zelensky really, you know, really take the imagination of the American people, certainly people around the globe. We’ve been locked down for over two years, Laura. And when they see someone stand up to fight for Liberty and freedom, it inspires them. We need that sort of Liberty and freedom here right now. And that’s not the Biden Administration.”
Hagerty on the Biden Administration’s green energy policies weakening America and harming American workers: “They talk about going electric. We don’t have the ability to go electric. We need Russia, we need China to provide the raw materials for that. What they’re doing is they’re going to Venezuela and Maduro. They’re thinking about maybe announcing that Iran will come to our rescue and release more oil into the markets. They want dirty oil from countries that are international killers. They will not deal with American drillers […] But to think that that’s their call right now. The electric vehicles aren’t available. Yet, we’re coming up on this gas shortage.”
Hagerty on the need to prioritize America’s security: “This seems to be a priority that’s very hard for me to understand, Laura. We’ve got desperate needs at home. If you look at my home state of Tennessee, fentanyl is killing our kids. And we won’t spend a dime to secure our own border, yet the call here in Washington is that we need to rush to the aid of other nations and spend billions of dollars to secure theirs.”
Hagerty on maintaining Russia’s Most Favored Nation status: “It’s absolutely shocking. And China has fallen down so pathetically on all of their commitments in trade. Russia, given what they’re doing right now, I can’t imagine this could even be considered […] China’s laughing all the way to the bank yet again.”
