The most likely candidate for the post of American President from the Democratic party, former Vice President of the United States Joseph Biden, if he wins the election, will destroy the American energy sector. This statement was made by the President of the country, Donald Trump.
During a press conference at the White House, the US leader said that Biden wants to вЂњkill American energyвЂќ, and also criticized his plans to return the US to the Paris climate agreement, writes the New York Times.
According to him, this decision would not only not help the environment, but also hit the American industry and strengthen the position of China. Trump is confident that if implemented, the Biden program will destroy US companies that work in the field of вЂњclean coalвЂќ and gas production.
In addition, the head of the White House said that such decisions can make it difficult for the United States to fight with competitors in the economy and recalled that now American companies are actively fighting against China and other countries of the world, including European ones.
On July 13, Joe Biden said that if he wins the election, he plans to invest $2 trillion over a four-year period in converting the country's energy to clean sources.
On July 7, the former Vice President outlined his own program to improve the US supply system and supplier chains, including by restricting imports from Russia and China. The politician considers it appropriate to increase spending on purchasing goods and services produced at home by $400 billion over four years.
The National Convention of the Democratic Party of the United States, at which Biden should be named a candidate for the highest state post, was postponed due to the pandemic on August 17-20. It will be held in Milwaukee (Wisconsin).
