Trump Says The First Thing He’ll Do To Bring Down Rising Costs

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

When asked how he would stimulate the American economy during his CNN town hall session on Wednesday, former President Donald Trump responded that he would promote American energy independence.

Americans benefited from low gas costs from 2017 to 2021, when Trump served as president. Since then, unprecedented inflation has had an impact on numerous households.

The price spikes have not been isolated to gasoline as costs for products such as groceries and other needs have also soared.

Prices have increased dramatically over the past two years as a result of firms having to pass expenses along to customers.

On Wednesday night in New Hampshire, Trump attended a CNN-hosted town hall meeting, during which the network made a concerted effort to portray him as an extremist.

Undecided voters eventually got a chance to speak with the nation’s 45th president after network host Kaitlan Collins tried to corner him on topics like the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol incursion and his legal troubles.

One of them inquired about his plans for the opening day of the second term. After the economy performed poorly for two years, Trump was questioned about his promises to turn things around.

Town Hall attendee Danielle Rieger questioned what President Trump would do about the rising cost of living, asking, “Over the past two years, we have seen prices for everything skyrocket.”

“If elected president again, what is the first thing you would do to help bring down costs to make things more affordable?” Rieger added.

Trump was quick to respond.

“Drill, baby, drill,” he said with a roaring applause from the audience.

Trump continued, “We were energy independent. We were soon going to be energy dominant.”

The 45th commander in chief of the nation claimed that if he had been given a second term, the nation would now be more energy independent than Saudi Arabia and Russia put together — and then some.

He swore that if re-elected, he will reduce the strains that the Biden administration is making families deal with.

“We have more liquid gold under our feet than any other nation — any other nation — and these stupid fools ended it.”

Trump made the point that every commodity and service a firm offers, including electricity expenses, is impacted by the cost of energy.

He came to the conclusion that the tax cuts implemented under the previous administration of President Ronald Reagan had less of an impact than the energy independence that was attained during his four years in office.

“This place was rockin’,” he said.
