Last night marked the final debate of the 2020 presidential election.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed last night’s final presidential debate. Former Director of National Intelligence and ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy Ric Grenell joined us in the studio to provide analysis.
I think my favorite moment last night was turning on CNN after the debate was over and watching the meltdown. I say that because when former Vice President Biden said that he will end oil and gas, they knew it was a big mistake.
What follows is the exchange that President Trump and Vice President Biden had on the issue:
President Trump: Would you close down the oil industry?
Vice President Biden: By the way, I would transition from the oil industry, yes.
President Trump: Oh, that’s a big statement.
Vice President Biden: I will transition. It is a big statement.
President Trump: That’s a big statement.
Kristin Welker, debate moderator: Why would you do that?
Vice President Biden: Because the oil industry pollutes, significantly.
President Trump: Oh, I see. Okay. That’s a big statement.
So no more oil and gas. It might not be a good idea for people living in Pennsylvania, Texas, Oklahoma, and Ohio for that to be implemented in their states which makes up a very large chunk of their industry in those areas of the country. It would also be horrible for the country since we are now for the first time energy independent. I think that was the biggest moment from the debate.
ACLJ Special Advisor Ric Grenell was actually at the debate in person. I asked him to give us his thoughts from being in the room last night:
I thought President Trump felt comfortable. He did a really good job of prosecuting what the Trump economy would look like compared to what the Biden economy looked like. Which immediately gets into the oil and gas issue because I do think this was a barnstorming moment.
My son, Jordan Sekulow, offered his thoughts on the oil and gas moment:
Here’s where I think President Trump was most effective. It was in response to his question. He said, “Would you close down the oil industry?” That was not from Kristin Welker. That was from President Trump to Vice President Biden, and Biden said “I would transition from the oil industry, yes.” And then you hear Kristin Welker later on kind of exasperated, as someone who’s a Democrat, but did a pretty good job as a moderator. She said, “Why would you do that?”
Why would he do that? I’ll tell you why. The far Left side of his party is forcing him to go there. That’s what I think it is.
