Joe Biden on Monday signaled his approval of the highest gas and fuel prices the U.S. has ever recorded, calling it part of an “incredible transition” to green energy away from fossil fuels while meeting with the Japanese Prime Minister earlier today.
“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said during a press conference in Japan after meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
Biden bragged about his administration’s alleged accomplishments, crediting his policies for keeping the record high gas prices “from getting worse — and it’s bad.” Then, Biden acknowledged that many Americans are feeling pain at the pump.
“The price of gas at the pump is something that I told you — you heard me say before — it would be a matter of great discussion at my kitchen table when I was a kid growing up,” Biden said. “It’s affecting a lot of families.”
The average cost of one gallon of gasoline nationwide was at $4.596 per gallon.
When 45th President Donald Trump was in office, the price of gas was around $2.00.
While in Japan, Biden raised eyebrows when he said America would “militarily” defend Taiwan should China mount an invasion of the country, prompting his own White House to pivot on the same day, Valiant News reported.
When asked point blank by a reporter if he was willing to “get involved militarily to defend Taiwan,” Biden answered in the affirmative.
“That’s the commitment we made,” he said. “The idea that it could be taken by force, taken by force, it’s just not appropriate. It will dislocate the entire region and it’ll be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine. So it’s a burden that is even stronger.”
