During the final presidential debate last Thursday, Biden said he would “transition away from oil” when asked about his climate plan.

Trump was eager to hit back. “Will you remember that Texas? Will you remember that, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma?” Trump said at the time.

McDaniel further said on Sunday that Biden is trying not to be transparent and preventing people from knowing how he’ll govern. 

McDaniel also criticized  the media for not investigating claims that Biden was getting money from foreign governments. 

“I think that’s incumbent upon the press to start investigating.” She said the emails were “deeply troubling," and warrant an investigation.
