Rep. Stewart rips Biden's Saudi trip: 'Absurd' position to find US in
GOP lawmaker on Biden’s Saudi trip: ‘Absurd’ position to find US in
Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, argues the U.S. was a net exporter of energy just 18 months ago.
Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, criticized President Biden Friday for putting the U.S. in an "absurd" position as he travels to Saudi Arabia in hopes of increasing oil production, arguing the country is now dependent on foreign energy producers on "Mornings with Maria."
REP. CHRIS STEWART: I don't think it's going to be what the president hopes for. I was in Saudi Arabia a few weeks ago. I had the chance to meet with the crown prince, with the defense and foreign ministers, with the minister of energy. Here's the deal. This president has demonized the Saudis. He's demonized the crown prince personally. And now he goes hat in hand. And I don't think they're going to give him what they want.
