If anyone doubts that Joe Biden and his Democrats are trying to hurt America, just look at what he’s doing to our jobs market. On his first day in office, he canceled a major project that would provide thousands of jobs–not to mention more energy resources. He also canceled drilling on federal land, which killed entire industries in states like New Mexico.
But he was far from done. Recently, his administration ended a deal signed by President Trump. They stopped drilling in ANWR, a region in Alaska that was providing natural resources, jobs, and wealth to the state.
ANWR is a massive region and the drilling was on land the relative size of a postage stamp. It had minimal environmental impact on the state–but Biden still killed it and with it significant income for Alaska residents.
So, Donald Trump is laying the blame for this travesty on one person who could have stopped it: Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
Former President Donald Trump released a statement Monday afternoon that condemned Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) as the Washington Democrats’ “best friend,” reaffirming his vow to “campaign against her.”
“Senator Lisa Murkowski has cost the great people of Alaska billions and billions of dollars by voting for Radical Left Biden appointees, which in turn led to the revocation of ANWR drilling,” Trump said in the statement, noting, “Alaskans have been fighting to see [this] happen for six decades.”
Trump continued to write, “Not only did Murkowski kill the biggest economic stimulant for the State, but also one of the biggest energy producing sites in the world.”…

Donald Trump has been a frequent critic of Murkowski, way back when he was president. The so-called Republican senator had long opposed Trump’s America-First agenda. All evidence points to the fact that she is a servant to the D.C. swamp, someone who cares more about the status quo of the rich and power, than the value she claims to support.
Trump is using this opportunity to remind Alaska voters about Murkowski’s track record. He is drawing a connection between the senator’s support of Biden’s appointees and the recent ending of the ANWR drilling. That move by Biden would have already cost Alaskans their jobs, not to mention the economic fallout that will be felt for years to come. Families in Alaska now have to worry about how to put food on the table.
And 45 is letting them know it’s all Murkowski’s fault.
Momentum was already rising against Murkowski. Like many other RINOs, her state was turning against her. Strong up-and-comers appear to be challenging her seat. And she is certainly not looking at an easy re-election race.
Some reports suggest she hasn’t even decided if she will run again. With mounting pressure from primary rivals and Donald Trump–she just might throw in the towel now.
