US President Donald Trump said that the US is forced to buy oil from Russia because of the Democrats who oppose the construction of pipelines.
Speaking to supporters in New Hampshire, Trump noted that the country’s highest electricity prices are in the New England region of the northeastern United States.
According to him, this was because New York State Governor, Democrat Andrew Cuomo does not allow a pipeline to be laid across the top of the region to bring oil and gas to New England.
In this regard, according to Trump, energy has to be purchased in Russia, writes RIA Novosti.
At present, the United States insists that Germany refuse to support the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
In particular, US senators demanded that the Mukran port operator stop helping to complete the pipeline, threatening to “financially destroy”.
