‘NO CONFLICT’: Karine Jean-Pierre Says Biden’s ‘No Drilling’ Promise Doesn’t Interfere With Lowering Gas Prices

During Monday’s White House press conference, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was questioned about Biden’s recent “no more drilling” claim —a comment made after his rally to support Kathy Hochul.

“No more drilling,” Biden said to a climate protester. 

After the protester continued to shout, Biden shot back, sounding annoyed: “There is no more drilling. I haven’t formed any new drilling.” 

“That was before I was president. We’re trying to work on that to get that done,” Biden responded. 

When asked about the comments, KJP says that there is “no conflict” with Biden’s attempt to bring gas prices down.

“Biden made a pledge last night…to approve ‘no more drilling’ for oil. But does he see that as being in conflict with his efforts to lower gas prices?” one reporter asked KJP.

“So, no we don’t see that in conflict.”
