AAF on Biden Administration Easing Venezuela Sanctions

October 17th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom issued the following statement in response to the United States easing sanctions on Venezuelan oil.

“The Biden administration would rather beg for from any foreign nation or regime than allow for increased US production,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “President Biden drained the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to avoid bad publicity, and now has decided to ease sanctions on another regime that does not share the values of our nation. We must demonstrate American strength and leadership on the world stage by getting America back to being energy independent and unleash the full strength of American natural resources.”

Background:

In 2022, Advancing American Freedom committed $10 million to fighting for American energy and opposing Biden’s radical climate agenda. The main focus of that campaign was President Biden’s reliance on foreign adversaries for U.S. energy, and we are disappointed to see the President choose foreign energy over domestic production again today.
