‘Yes or no?’ Briefing gets testy when reporter calls out State Dept spox for taking credit for Trump actions
February 23, 2021 | Tom Tillison


State Department spokesman Ned Price was called out Monday for trying to credit the Biden administration for a policy started by the Trump administration.

Proving that journalists may have occasional moments of clarity, Associated Press reporter Matt Lee was surprisingly aggressive in taking Price to task for touting the administration’s efforts to scale back the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany.

Speaking on 18 different companies making “good-faith efforts to wind down” their involvement with the project, according to the New York Post, Price would add, “This demonstrates that the legislative goals and our actions are having a good effect.”

The problem being that U.S. opposition to the project dates back to former President Donald Trump’s time in office, the paper noted, and Lee wasn’t about to let Price get away with it.
