The USA is NOT Energy Independent

A few of my American friends who are currently cheering the Trump-Administration have crowed on Trump’s declaration that the USA is energy independent, a talking-point that Trump re-claimed at the recent State of the Union Address. That does not jive with my own impression, so I did a little digging.

Ben Geman at Axios had provided a recent and balanced take on this claim. – cPaul
