Granholm se rió recientemente cuando se le preguntó sobre sus planes para aumentar la producción de petróleo estadounidense., diciendo “Es muy gracioso” y explicando que el aceite es un “mercado global” controlled by OPEC – which she said had decided not to increase oil production.
McDowell fired back, saying the United States “controlled the price until you took a chainsaw – you and your liberal nuts – to one of our most valuable industries, and took a chainsaw to our global security. You handed power to nations that hate us. …And she can laugh about that, también.”
“Is it too much to ask that the secretary of energy actually understands how the energy sector works and how energy production works?” McDowell asked. “Is it too much to ask for her to give at least a small, frío, damn about the suffering that all Americans are facing as they try to say, 'Oh, do I eat spaghetti for dinner? Or do I buy a steak because I’ve got to fill up my car tomorrow morning?'”
“El cinco” co-host further explained that under former President Donald Trump, los Estados Unidos. “control[led] the global price of oil” because it “had so much spare production capacity.”
