As you know, when President Biden took office he immediately killed off the Keystone pipeline while raising no objection to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany. However, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is defending that decision by saying that the pipeline can be used as leverage against Russia:
.@SecBlinken: “This pipeline does not have gas flowing through it at present. […] Some may see Nord Stream 2 as leverage that Russia can use against Europe. In fact, it’s leverage for Europe to use against Russia.” pic.twitter.com/zuk5nOUkhh

Maybe Blinken should just go back to repeatedly promoting his Spotify playlist.
I can’t believe he actually said this https://t.co/2sBd1s5RL1

Considering this administration turns everything they touch into crap, we’re not confident time will end up proving Blinken correct.
