“Exxon is more worthy than God”
Biden is angry about the prices at the pump. He unveiled the attack on oil company ExxonMobil on Friday during an event in Los Angeles harbor. “Exxon made more money than God did last year,” Biden said, calling on the company to spend less to buy its own shares and invest more to increase oil production.
