Joe Biden handed Donald Trump a huge 2024 gift with this mind-blowing decision
Joe Biden trails Donald Trump by 3.8 percent in the RealClearPolitics polling average.
He just dug himself an even deeper hole.
And that’s because Joe Biden handed Donald Trump a huge 2024 gift with this mind-blowing decision.
President Joe Biden’s political coalition is cracking up.
Former President Donald Trump leads him in the polls in large part because young voters don’t think he is enough of a socialist for their tastes.
A recent Pew Research poll found just 27 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 approve of Joe Biden with 71 percent disapproving.
The two biggest issues for Democrats in this age demographic are support for Hamas and the Green New Deal.
Biden sought to appease his radical base on climate change by halting the approval of a new American Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal in Louisiana.
FULL STATEMENT: And it’s official. The White House announces a “temporary pause” on pending approvals of American LNG export terminals.

Restricting the production of natural gas is sure to place upward pressure on energy prices and keep inflation running hot.
Biden is once again proving he’s a hostage to the Left by punishing working-class Americans with higher energy prices in order to satisfy his radical base.
America’s natural gas boom accomplished the goal the Left claimed they wanted to achieve – lower carbon emissions.
But Biden’s Green New Deal isn’t really about climate change or saving the planet.
It’s about controlling every aspect of Americans’ lives and punishing lifestyle choices that Democrat elites find repugnant.
The Trump campaign responded by declaring that on day one in office Donald Trump would end Biden’s war on American energy.
“Joe Biden has once again caved to the radical demands of the environmental extremists in his administration,” Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt told the Daily Caller. “On day one, President Trump will unleash American Energy to lower the cost of living for all Americans, pay down debt, strengthen national security, and establish the United States as the manufacturing superpower of the world.”
Leavitt added halting the LNG export terminal is a “disastrous self-inflicted wound that will further undermine America’s economic and national security.”
The unaffordability of life in Biden’s America is what’s helping to drag his poll numbers.
But in politics, you can’t build out to the middle unless you solidify your base.
And Joe Biden chose to solidify his base by taking concrete steps to drive up energy prices for the rest of America.
