Strange Ties: Biden Selling Oil to China During Energy Crisis

While interviewing Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo went off on the Biden administration, calling out President Joe Biden for promoting electric cars produced in China while selling oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserves to the American rival.

Bartiromo, host of “Maria Bartiromo’s Wall Street” on Fox Business Network,” ripped the president for his actions in selling oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves to China at a time when Americans are paying record-high prices at the pump.

“I know growing up in America is going to be much different than growing up in an environment where Communist China is the number one superpower,” she said. “And here we have Joe Biden selling — sending our oil from the strategic reserves partly to China.”

The Fox Business host went on to call out the Biden administration for promoting expensive electric vehicles produced overseas while ignoring Elon Musk’s Tesla, which produces electric cars that are made in America.

“You have them pushing electric vehicles, but never mentioning Tesla, even though it’s — was the number one electric producer,” Bartiromo said. “Now, the number one producer is actually Hong Kong-based.”

She then discussed the fact that the Biden administration is currently contemplating removing tariffs on China when they should be cracking down on the communist country, and pointed out that critics have grown concerned over the president’s son, Hunter Biden, and his business dealings with Chinese companies. It was recently revealed by the Washington Free Beacon that the Biden administration had sold 950,000 barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to Unipec America, Inc., a Chinese company that one of Hunter Biden’s equity companies once bought a $1.7 billion stake in.

“And of course, now we have these threats and the Biden administration wants to remove tariffs just a few months after they eliminated the China Initiative,” Bartiromo said, referring to the Trump administration’s national security program which focused resources on prosecuting economic espionage and trade secret theft by Chinese government agents.

“There are questions as to why the administration is not doing more to crack down on China, and critics are pointing to Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Chinese companies,” she added.
