The White House did not want this caught on video because it smoked Biden’s agenda.
What really occurred was a leader serious about trying to help his country speaking to a delirious old man who doesn’t care about his own country or anyone else.
French President Emmanuel Macron caught up with Biden during the G-7 Summit to discuss energy and rising fuel prices. Like so many of our allies, France is struggling because of the war in Ukraine and the lack of production in the USA. The French President desperately tried to explain to Biden that OPEC is already producing at the maximum capacity and would like the USA to resume Trump-era oil production levels.
“I had a call with MbZ,” Macron was heard telling U.S. President Joe Biden while he was walking during the G7 summit, using shorthand for UAE leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan. “He told me two things. I’m at a maximum, maximum (production capacity). This is what he claims.”
“And then he said (the) Saudis can increase by 150 (thousands of barrels per day). Maybe a little bit more, but they don’t have huge capacities before six months’ time,” Macron said.
Biden, who was walking with Jake Sullivan just stared at him and then tried to walk away but Macron followed. That was when Sullivan and other staffers split the two leaders apart.
In the video below, you’ll watch a staffer wearing a mask and another figure in a suit try to block the camera.
French President Emmanuel Macron tells Biden that begging the UAE and Saudi Arabia for more oil won’t work.
The UAE has also confirmed that there are almost at maximum production.
“In light of recent media reports, I would like to clarify that the UAE is producing near to our maximum production capacity based on its current OPEC+ production baseline,” said Energy Minister Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei.
Not only is Joe Biden willing to leave our allies out to dry he is willing to let a global famine occur.
NEW: Even if Western arms don’t change the battlefield equation, US officials describe the stakes of ensuring Russia doesn’t win in Ukraine as so high that they are willing to countenance even a global recession & mounting hunger. From @danlamothe & me https://t.co/HeOdarWHOB
