Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a 2024 presidential hopeful said this week during his day job as an ABC News analyst said President Joe Biden is being held captive by the far-left environmentalists. Christie said the President is being forced by the left to not increase domestic oil production and also being forced not to sanction the purchases of Russian gasoline.
“You have to ban Russian oil and you have to increase domestic production and that is where Joe Biden’s gonna have the problem because he’s held captive by the environmental left with John Kerry,” Christie said. “His guy said last week that the real tragedy of Ukraine is it’s slowing our efforts on climate change. That will summarize what the far left’s view is about while women and children are being slaughtered.”
