Vice President Kamala Harris continues her globe-trotting journey in Africa, visiting countries like Ghana, Zambia and Tanzania on a taxpayer-funded tour. Reports say the Vice President met with Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo to discuss “global and regional issues”, but what exactly does that mean? Does she plan to give away more American jobs and money to foreign countries through her disastrous policies?
There's One Place Kamala Harris Will Ignore During Her Trip to Africa https://t.co/YDT3Hqz9DJ

What’s disturbing is that Harris has deliberately avoided visiting the Congo, where unsafe mines enable progressives’ insatiable thirst for electric vehicles. She’s been quick to push the radical ideology of a so-called “emissions-free” society, but refuses to witness the human rights abuses and child labor taking place in African mines. This is nothing but hypocrisy.
CONGO – unregulated mines employ thousands of workers, mining cobalt for batteries, so NET ZERO can be ‘achieved’ & we feel good.
These mines often collapse & trapped workers are dug out by hand, if they are lucky.
But hey it saves the planet, right ?

Around 40,000 child slaves are exploited in Congo to mine for Cobalt that is used in electric car batteries. The false virtue of net zero solutions masks the unethical inhumanity that is involved to plunder for it. pic.twitter.com/HozX6npv1Y

Five thousand workers pack tightly together at the bottom of a crater, swinging hammers and picks to prise out chunks of blue-gold ore. The mining has been carrying on for years in flagrant violation of DRC laws pic.twitter.com/VbxVvUNIMq

TY @AshleyStrohmier & @ToddPiro for having me on @FoxFriendsFirst this AM! I spoke about the VP's Africa trip and why the push for net-zero/ESG investments is a lose-lose situation for both the US and African partners.

We need leaders who prioritize America’s interests first, not ones who waste taxpayer money flying around the world to make empty promises and shake hands with oppressive regimes. Harris should use her position to bring jobs back home, lower taxes, and secure our southern border. It’s time to put America first again.
