Bank CEO Tells Squad Member Her Agenda is the “Road to Hell”

Radical “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib demanded that banks stop funding oil and gas companies immediately in an exchange in Congress on September 21. (Fox) The response wasn’t what she was looking for after speaking with Jamie Dimon, CEO of J.P. Morgan.

Tlaib: “You have all committed, as you all know, to transition the emissions from lending and investment activities to align with pathways to net-zero in 2050… So no new fossil fuel production, starting today, so that’s like zero. I would like to ask all of you and go down the list, cause again, you all have agreed to doing this. Please answer with a simple yes or no, does your bank have a policy against funding new oil and gas products, Mr. Diamond?”   

Dimon: “Absolutely not, and that would be the road to hell for America.”  

So much for the radical “climate change” agenda designed to destroy the nation.  At least the bank CEOs have a brain. Her arrogant attempt to trap the bank officials was a flop.

First off, she didn’t even know who she was talking to, since she messed up his name. Dimon and “diamond” are two totally different words. She thinks she has all the answers when she has none at all.

Responses to her demands from other bank CEOs:

“We will continue to invest in and support clients who are investing in fossil fuels and in helping them transition to cleaner energies.” Jane Fraser, CEO of Citigroup

“We are helping our clients make a transition, and that means we’re lending to both oil and gas companies and to new energy companies and helping monitor their course towards the standards you’re talking about.” Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America

The viciousness with which the radical left pushes this administration is akin to the Stasi of East Germany. They have demands that would destroy America and indeed are in the process of doing it already. Electric vehicles are a boondoggle – there isn’t enough electricity to charge all those vehicles in the entire country- and no “clean energy” will ever make up for that produced by fossil fuels. The left is delusional and arrogant.
