Sen. Steve Daines: Biden, Democrats using Russian oil ban as a ‘fig leaf’ to cover up ‘radical’ Green New Deal

Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., accused President Biden and Democrats of using the Russian oil ban as a “fig leaf” to cover for their “radical” Green New Deal policy proposals.

Daines made the comments during an interview with FOX Business and said that this isn’t just about banning Russian oil: Democrats want to ban all oil.

“I think the Democrats are using this ban as a fig leaf to cover up their radical Green New Deal priorities because it’s not just about banning Russian oil. They want to ban all oil,” Daines said.
