Trump: Elon Musk is a guy ‘I like and respect’

by Summer Lane

President Trump attacked Joe Biden’s administration’s inability to resolve the astronomical increase in gas prices during a Save America rally on Saturday night in South Carolina. He pointed out that even Tesla CEO Elon Musk has recently called for increased oil and gas production within the U.S. to combat rising prices.

“Elon Musk is a guy that I like and respect.. friend of mine,” Trump stated. “He runs an electric car company and is calling for Biden to increase oil and gas production, but Biden won’t do it because he does not have the will to stand up to AOC.” 

Last week, Elon Musk called for America to increase its gas and oil output to assuage insanely high gas prices at the pump. “Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately,” he stated on Twitter. “Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures.”

“Obviously, this would negatively affect Tesla, but sustainable energy solutions simply cannot react instantaneously to make up for Russian oil & gas exports,” he added.

Trump shredded Biden on his failures in the White House, particularly on the issue of rapidly-rising gas prices – a problem that began well before the Russian invasion of Ukraine started. “Gasoline now…we were at $1.87; even in the Midwest, it’s at $5.00,” Trump told RSBN’s Brian Glenn during a pre-rally interview. “It’s not even thinkable…they [Biden administration] want to negotiate with Venezuela, Iran, and OPEC.”

The 45th president warned the audience that Biden’s weak leadership in the Oval Office could plunge the world into a third World War. “This could lead to World War III,” he noted solemnly.
