‘Fracking is bad, actually’: AOC responds to Kamala Harris insisting at debate that Biden won’t ban it

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to criticise the Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris as she defended Joe Biden’s fracking commitment during her debate with Mike Pence.

The proggressive New York Democrat wrote on Twitter that “Fracking is bad, actually,” after Ms Harris defended Mr Biden’s climate plan during Wednesday night’s debate.

Whilst the California senator called for a fracking ban as a presidential candidate, the climate plan put forward by the party’s nominee does not propose a hydraulic fracturing ban.
