TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – Late Sunday, Governor Ron DeSantis (R) went after President Joe Biden (D) for his handling of the energy crisis amidst oil price spikes and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
It has come out that senior Biden officials are visiting Venezuela – run by the brutal dictator Nicolas Maduro since 2013 – to discuss the ongoing geopolitical nightmare between Russia, Ukraine, and the West.
Venezuela is a Russian ally and is known for its oil production under authoritarian rule by Maduro.
Reports say that U.S. officials are trying to convince Venezuela to distance itself from Russia because of their invasion of Ukraine. Venezuela could be a potential alternate source of oil supplies, according to analysts.
However, Maduro’s rule has come under intense scrutiny, with his efforts to undermine and circumvent democratic processes to remain in power.
“It is wrong for the Biden Administration to beg for oil from Venezuela & legitimate Maduro’s communist regime during an official visit,” DeSantis said.
“The U.S. should hold Maduro accountable while increasing domestic energy production so we won’t need to rely on hostile regimes for energy,” he continued.
The United States is not totally reliant on Russian oil, but if all Russian supplies were cut off, prices for American consumers would drive up even more, with gas prices in Florida already all but eclipsing $4.00 per gallon.
