Columnist Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday on “special report with Bret Baier” that President Barack Obama’s plan to ban offshore drilling in parts of the Atlantic and Arctic ocean is “monstrous” and reveals that the White house is trying to “nail everything to the floor, so it can not be moved” before Donald Trump takes over.
“Of course, it can be moved,” said Krauthammer. “The idea that, because we don’t drill, the oil or gas is to be produced, is ridiculous, and it is produced at the end, in Nigeria or places in the world where the environmental standards are infinitely less than in the United States”.

President Obama called on, in 1953, a law that he claims gives him the power to act unilaterally and declare a permanent drilling ban from Virginia to Maine on the East coast, as well as along much of Alaska’s coast.
Krauthammer added that Obama the movement will not allow the United States to compete economically with foreign countries, the saying, “the Chinese opening, fired a coal plant every week. It is not going to stop.
“What we do not do, you are going to do, and everything we do is Export orders, Export of waste and the Export of hazard.”
