Trump offshore drilling ban a ‘Hail Mary’ to swing Florida votes in his favour

U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent oil ban on offshore drilling in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina is a last-ditch effort to swing votes in his favour ahead of November elections and get some environmentalist voters to switch from his Democrat opponent Joe Biden.

The offshore oil ban, only several days old, is a complete U-turn from Trump’s previous stance on oil, offshore drilling, and any other energy-related topic.

And to make things very clear – Trump was pro-oil, or to put it more precisely – anti-environment, since the first day of his campaign and, consequently, his Presidential mandate.
