“By the end of Trump’s presidency, America was really on the road to being the energy dominant country. We were actually exporting oil and gas and petroleum products for the first time in my lifetime. And that put American an incredibly strong geopolitical situation— both for our economy and our national security. Look what’s happened the last 14 months. I mean, it’s astonishing how you could you can destroy an industry so quickly. We should be producing 15 million barrels of oil a day. We’re producing 10 and a half million. So these are policies that almost seem to be deliberately trying to injure the American economy.” — Stephen Moore, senior economist at Freedom Works
