During a press conference held on Monday, Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki where are all the “green jobs” for the unemployed union and construction workers.
This question comes after President Joe Biden, during his first day in office, signed an executive order that destroyed the Keystone XL Pipeline, a project that was designed to help move oil from Canada to the United States.
Biden’s administration has proposed a green jobs plan to help create more than 10 million “well-paying jobs in the United States,” although there has bee no immediate legislation or executive order proposed to carry that out.
“When is it that the Biden administration is going to let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers, whether it’s pipeline workers or construction workers, who are either out of work or soon to be out of work because of a Biden [executive order], when it is and where it is that they can go for their green jobs?” Doocey asked.
Psaki addressed Biden’s climate proposal and said that the plan may be rolled out in the upcoming “weeks or months.”
“President Biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure. And laid out a plan that would not only create millions of good union jobs but also help tackle the climate crisis,” Psaki said. “[The President] talked about his plans to also put forward a jobs plan in the weeks or months following.”
Fox News's Peter Doocy is back and he's brought the receipts on energy to Jen Psaki.
Needless to say, she didn't like that he pressed her on what's the plan for laid off workers to get these fantastical "green" jobs that Biden and Kerry keep talking about (1/2) pic.twitter.com/czz45M9tXK

“But there are people living paycheck to paycheck,” Doocy said. “There are people out of jobs once the Keystone pipeline stopped construction. It’s been 12 days since Gina McCarthy and John Kerry were here. It’s been 19 days since that [executive order], so what do those people who need money now — when do they get their green jobs?”
When the brand new president makes such a horrendous decision during his first day on the job, it does not bode well for the remaining four years he’s to serve in office.
In fact, we can all but guarantee that our economy is going to be in the crapper for sure with the kind of policies that Biden and his administration want to push. These people have no concept of how reality works. None at all.
Here’s to hoping our country survives this mess.
