Fact check: Did Biden ever say he would ban fraking?

Biden: Show the tape!

Statement in Question: Is Biden’s statement: “I have never said I opposed fraking,” True?

Background/Context: During the presidential debate with President Trump on October 22, 2020, Joe Biden claimed, “I have never said I opposed fraking.”  For this debate at least, Biden is denying statements he’s made previously regarding ending all fraking and fossil fuels. If Biden were to win and actually did what he promises, energy states like Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and Texas would lose millions of jobs; and worse, it  make America dependent on foreign energy again. Knowing that, Biden’s handlers do not want their true agenda known.

True or False: False. Biden has claimed numerous times he would end both fraking and fossil fuels.

Degree of Certainty: Certain.

Reason: As the president said, his statements are on tape.
