Washington, D.C. – Today, President Biden threatened to "bring an end" to Putin's Nord Stream 2 pipeline if Russia invades Ukraine. This policy flip-flop comes less than a month after the Biden Administration demanded members of the Senate vote against sanctions on the pipeline and less than a year after President Biden lifted sanctions allowing the pipeline to move forward.
"It is pathetic that it took an imminent threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine for President Biden to finally admit what has been clear all along: Nord Stream 2 never should have been allowed to move forward," said Daniel Turner, Founder and Exectuive Director of Power The Future. "When America projects weakness, our foes take notice. Let this record setting flip-flop be a reminder of the cost of surrendering American energy independence: when a nation relies on others to power its economy, it weakens itself domestically and in global affairs."
