Biden claimed his actions were to protect the climate but they helped China and made America less secure.
On his first day in office, Joe Biden signed a number of EOs. This was made possible by the Barr DOJ. Bill Barr was fast-tracking Biden’s EOs while he was slow-walking President Trump’s.
Biden ended President Trump’s EO protecting the US power grid from China
President Trump’s May 1, 2020, EO Securing the United States Bulk-Power System stated:
What prompted Trump’s EO was a report from the Department of Energydated 2014 (the Obama years) that found:
Since the late 1990’s, the United States has experienced an increased demand for LPTs; however, despite the growing need, the United States has a limited domestic capacity to produce LPTs. In 2010, six power transformer manufacturing facilities existed in the United States, and together, they met approximately 15 percent of the Nation’s demand for power transformers of a capacity rating greater than or equal to 60 megavolt-amperes (MVA).
Trump said the following when he initiated his EO (emphasis added):
“[F]oreign adversaries are increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in the United States bulk-power system, which provides the electricity that supports our national defense, vital emergency services, critical infrastructure, economy, and way of life. The bulk-power system is a target of those seeking to commit malicious acts against the United States and its people, including malicious cyber activities, because a successful attack on our bulk-power system would present significant risks to our economy, human health and safety, and would render the United States less capable of acting in defense of itself and its allies,” Trump said in explaining why he wanted to keep foreign equipment out of the nation’s power grid.
