Fox News host Laura Ingraham said on Wednesday that Americans are suffering under President Biden’s energy policies, as the administration calls on Congress to approve a three-month gas tax holiday.
“Five major refineries have already shut down in the United States because investors shockingly actually want to make a profit. And they know there’s no long-term viability in this investment because of the ESG movement and all the green movement, both here and around the world,” Ingraham told “Fox & Friends,” also previewing her new Fox Nation, show “Hidden Gems.”
Biden has faced backlash after appearing to suggest that high gas prices will be a “good” opportunity to make a “fundamental turn” to clean energy.
Some conservatives called the president out on Twitter for the comments, as gas prices average $4.98 a gallon nationwide, according to AAA and inflation rose to a 40-year-high last month, sparking fears of an impending recession.

Ingraham said while America abandons energy independence, it enriches other countries and makes Americans poorer.
“They decided America was going to abandon our energy independence and all of our strength and frankly, a lot of our sovereignty because we had cheap energy for 400 years. Now they want to throw that away as China is building coal plants, coal-fired plants,” she stressed.

“Russia is getting richer, China is getting richer and the United States average American family is getting poorer under Biden. That is a fact, which I think we have to remind everyone. Everyday Americans under Biden are getting poorer. It’s scary,” she said, predicting another wave election in favor of Republicans in November that will be even bigger than the 2010 results.
Ingraham said it’s all about the “great transition” to green energy and Americans are “suffering the most” from the policies.
