Former president Donald Trump, seeking his second and non-consecutive stay in the White House, released a powerful new campaign ad detailing his plan for “reclaiming American energy dominance” as well as reimagining and building “power plants, pipelines, grids, ports, refineries, and shipping terminals of tomorrow.” The ad was released exclusively to Breitbart News.
To date, the former president is running mostly unopposed. Grifting hacks like Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and Nikki Haley have all previously intimated a 2024 bid for the Republican nomination, has so far deployed most of his talons against the only other person seen as a potential threat to his ascendency – Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
In this ad, though, Trump stayed on message of how he would address America’s energy woes rather than fighting in the mud with his chief political rival.
In his previous tenure, Donald Trump backed out of the Obama-initiated Paris Climate Accords and once again promised to do the same. His vision would provide new job opportunities for Americans and lower the soaring energy prices currently miring the nation. Trump said:
I will deploy a team of warrior lawyers to hunt down every unnecessary regulation in the federal registry that hampers domestic production and we will wipe them off the books. We will again get out of Paris and we will rapidly issue approvals for all worthy energy infrastructure projects with a focus on maximum speed to bring prices down rapidly. So get those proposals ready now, because we are going to put thousands of Americans to work, building the power plants, pipelines, grids, ports, refineries and shipping terminals of tomorrow.
Trump also made an intentional appeal to young Americans, who in the last election were heavily swayed by the socialist lies of the Democrat Party.
Instead of being irrationally terrified by political predictions of climate apocalypse, instead of toiling for low wages or left-wing make-work projects, I have a vision that will give young Americans a chance to find real meaning in work once again…building the backbone of America that is powerful, prosperous, productive, vigorous, modern, independent, and free.
Trump then used the ad to take an easy swipe at Joe Biden, whose climate zealotry has produced high energy prices and unnecessary shortages.
“Nobody has more liquid gold under their feet than the United States of America, and we will use it and profit by it and live with it, and we will be rich again, and we will be happy again and will be proud again,” he elaborated.
Trump used the opportunity to connect Joe Biden with China by noting that nobody benefits more from Biden’s shortsighted, limited policies than America’s chief rival nation.
He canceled the keystone XL pipeline, he reentered the horrendous Paris Climate Accords – so unfair to the United States, good for other countries, so bad for us. He put up huge road blocks to new oil, gas, and coal production and much, much more. In effect, Biden’s anti-American energy crusade is a massive tax hike on everything. Higher energy costs raise the price of food, raw materials, shipping, transportation, construction, manufacturing, and everything else.
