    @ShoTimeDzoWellz @007rager @thegoodgodabove @JoeBiden Somebody’s pulling your leg with much of what’s on those lists, son. Like the crude oil production one- we may have out-produced the Russians and the Saudis in 2018 but most of that progress happened under Obama. The pace of increase actually slowed under Trump. 🤦🏻‍♀️
