The president will also have an overview of the costs of banning the extraction of oil and gas from shale oil, so-called fracking.

Shale oil is a major industry in Pennsylvania, among other places.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that Joe Biden will ban shale oil extraction. The claim is refuted by Biden, who himself has said that he does not support such a ban.

On the other hand, Biden’s more liberal party colleagues, among them his vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris, have said they support several restrictions on the shale oil industry.

“In other words, if any of these acts come in and say we’re quitting fracking, it’s the end of Pennsylvania,” Trump said at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania on Saturday.
