President Biden defended his tapping of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve on Wednesday, saying the move is “not politically motivated.” Biden has been accused by conservative voices that this was a move to drum up votes as midterms approach.

“It’s not politically motivated at all,” Biden said. “It’s motivated to make sure that I continue to push on what I’ve been pushing on, and that is making sure there’s enough oil that’s being pumped by the companies so that we have the ability to be able to produce enough gas that we need here at home, oil we need here at home and at the same time keep moving in a direction of providing for alternative energy.”
