王中王精选一肖一码The president's campaign rally was filled with his usual attacks on Biden's mental sharpness and character and exaggerated claims about the former vice president's platform. But his speech was tailored a bit more toward the crowd with heavy references to fracking.

"Joe Biden has repeatedly pledged to abolish fracking he’s a liar, ok? He’s a liar," Trump said, accusing Biden of flip-flopping.

"And let me tell you, it's always the first thing that turns out to be true, OK," Trump added. "There will be no fracking, whatsoever. And did you see, his party now is really angry at him because he's saying maybe they'll be fracking, it's a very conditional, you know, it's a very weak. But with me you're going to frack. You're going to frack."

王中王精选一肖一码Fracking is a method of drilling into shale to release oil and natural gas. The practice is a major producer of energy in certain parts of the country, but it comes with significant environmental concerns, particularly about drinking water contamination, that have prompted progressives to call for limitations or an outright ban.

The Trump campaign has sought to turn Biden's stance on fracking into a major issue in energy-producing states like Pennsylvania and Texas. But the Biden campaign has been adamant that the former vice president would not ban fracking.

Biden in a Democratic primary debate earlier this year seemed to indicate that he was also in favor of stopping fracking when pressed by Sen.

But his campaign quickly sought to clarify that was not his official position.

"I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking," Biden told a crowd in Pennsylvania in August. "No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me."

The Trump campaign has put significant resources into holding Pennsylvania in November. The president won the state by roughly 45,000 votes in 2016, but polls have shown him trailing Biden there.
