Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker said he has previously told Donald Trump to not tweet so much. Former President Donald Trump was officially banned from Twitter a few days after the January 6th insurrection since his tweets were considered to be inciting violence. Walker was referring to the gas and oil crisis that the entire world is currently facing. Russia’s invasion into Ukraine has greatly increased gas prices.

WALKER: “They told us that, Putin, did this gas thing? No, he didn't. No, he didn't. You know, what happened with this gas thing, let me think about it for a moment. Joe Biden went to office and even sort of mad at Trump. You know, I get mad at Donald too sometimes. Some of his tweets, I didn't like them. I used to tell him, “Don't do it.” He did it anyway, so it didn't matter. But you know what he did make us energy independent.”
