Trump Promises Big Oil That He Will Immediately Approval All Of Their Projects

Trump continued to try to sell US policy by promising the fossil fuel industry that if he returned to the White House, he would immediately approve all of their projects.

The Washington Post reported:

Trump said he would “lift the natural gas export ban, cancel all unnecessary energy-killing regulations … [and] open up more federal lands” to drilling, the notes said, drawing cheers from the audience.

Trump told attendees that he would immediately reverse Biden’s pause on approvals of new liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. Lifting the pause could directly benefit Energy Transfer Partners, whose pipelines serve several LNG export terminals that ship the fuel overseas. The company also clashed with the Biden administration last year when it refused to extend a permit for its LNG export terminal in Lake Charles, La.

Trump’s behavior is blatant. He is going to big-money donors and promising to do everything that they want in exchange for money. Usually, donors hope to influence with their contributions. There is no hope involved with Trump. The ex-president has slapped a price tag on US energy and environmental policy, and as long as Big Oil pays up, they will get everything that they want.

During Trump’s time in politics, there have been concerns and fears that he would sell access and policy. Trump’s own behavior confirms that he is corruptly selling US policy, and not even a Senate investigation will slow him down.
