Trump: Biden inconsistent on fracking

Speaking at a campaign event in Janesville, Wisconsin, United States President Donald Trump stated that his opponent in the upcoming presidential election, Joe Biden, gives inconsistent statements on hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking.

According to Trump, Biden had claimed "for a year and a half" he would ban such a procedure for oil and gas extraction, while he dismissed the notion during his town hall appearance in Pennsylvania earlier in the week.

A fracking ban would reportedly leave thousands of people without energy sector jobs in key election states such as Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas, making it a significant pre-election issue.
