Harris claims Biden WILL NOT ban fracking – despite VIDEO of herself & Biden saying the opposite

Harris claims Biden WILL NOT ban fracking – despite VIDEO of herself & Biden saying the opposite
VP Mike Pence accused Joe Biden multiple times of wanting to ban fracking at the vice presidential debate, which Senator Kamala Harris has denied – despite Biden’s past comments saying he is actually in favor of a ban.

Even President Donald Trump got involved in Wednesday’s debate after Harris denied a Biden administration would ban fracking.

Trump tweeted a video of Harris at a town hall event answering a voter who asked whether she would ban fracking on her first day in the White House by saying, “There’s no question I’m in favor of banning fracking, so yes.”

The video was retweeted by Pence’s Twitter account, as well, along with footage of Biden also promising to ban fracking and saying there would be “no place” for fossil fuels in his administration.

Despite the accusations, Harris denied wanting to ban the practice multiple times on Wednesday night, even saying at one point: “Joe Biden will not ban fracking. That is a fact.”

The president and vice president were far from the only critics to slam Harris and question her “fact.”

“Joe Biden is on video saying he will end fracking completely,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted.

“It must be nice to be a Democrat where you can always have it both ways. We all know Joe is banning fracking but Kamala can lie about it unchecked other than by @vp. Well done @Mike_Pence!” Donald Trump Jr added, sharing yet another video of Biden saying he will ban fracking.

Also leading to confusion about Biden and Harris’ position on the controversial practice of fracking, which involves drilling into the ground and releasing gas and oil from shale rock, is the fact that Harris was partly behind Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-New York) radical and expensive Green New Deal, which also would ban fracking.

Biden called the plan a “crucial framework” when releasing his own plan for the environment. He said at the last presidential debate, however, that he does not support the Green New Deal and has also claimed that Trump “lied” when he suggested that the former vice president is in favor of banning fracking.

Ocasio-Cortez jumped into the fracking debate on Wednesday night too, tweeting that the practice is “bad” and claiming the GOP “lies” about the plan.
