Fired Keystone XL Contractor Torches Biden: 'Everything He's Done Is a Failure'
'We went from America first to America last'
A former Keystone XL Pipeline contractor blasted Joe Biden for soaring gas prices and ruining America's energy independence since taking office.
The fired pipeline worker, Lynn Allen, weighed in on the nation’s gas prices, which are now the highest on average since 2014 at $3.38 per gallon, the American Automobile Association reported.
“I’m not surprised at all,” Allen said, “because everything that Biden’s touched or done — it’s a failure.”
“It ain’t nothing but a total failure."
"We went from America first to America last.”
He then praised Donald Trump for his approach to the energy sector.
“Trump had it going on,” he said.
“The thing about it is that we’ve got all these high prices of oil and gas, we’ve got drilling rigs stacked, we’ve got roustabout crews ready to go, we’ve got pipeline contractors with all of their equipment is stacked in the yards."
"And I can tell you right now, we can put America to work next week if we needed to.”
Biden's energy policies have made the situation with gas prices worse.
Biden appeared defeated on the issue of gas prices during a CNN town hall on Thursday, saying there is not much action he can take.
“I don’t see anything that’s going to happen in the meantime that’s going to significantly reduce gas prices,” Biden said.

“A lot of Middle Eastern folks want to talk to me.”
“I’m not sure I’m going to talk to them,” he continued, “but the point is, it’s about gas production.”
But Biden could admit he made a mistake by halting federal oil and gas leases and canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline.
