A heated confrontation took place between an AP reported and Biden spokesman, with Biden's guy being asked if they're trying to take credit for things accomplished by former President Donald Trump's administration.

It was State Department spokesman Ned Price who was pressed hard by Matt Lee, from the Associated Press. Lee simply wanted to know if Biden's State Department was "taking credit" for things done by Trump, considering Biden's administration has been in office for only a short period of time.

Price seemed to be frazzled by the question.

WATCH the confrontation take place:



This all happened during a White House press conferene where Price stated that several companies we participating in "good faith efforts wind down activities" that were connected to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that travels from Russia to Germany.

This is a list that includes over 15 entities and it demonstrates that the legislative goals and our actions are having a good effect,” Mr. Price said.

Mr. Lee, an AP reporter of more than 20 years, asked Mr. Price, “Don’t you think it’s a bit disingenuous to claim credit for the 18 companies winding down? All of this work was done under the previous administration.”

Price tried to answer a few times, but Lee unloaded on the question:

“You guys have only been … in office for a month, right? Are you telling me that in the last four weeks these 18 companies all of a sudden decided to say, ‘Oh my God, we better not do anything with Nord Stream 2?’”

“Matt, I am speaking for the —” Mr. Price tried to answer.

“You guys are taking credit for stuff that the previous administration did, right? … Yes or no?” Mr. Lee asked.

Price's answer was that he only spoke for the Department of State and “the people who have been working this and the people who are working this now were the same people a month ago or the same people three months ago."

Price confirmed that they agree with Trump's decision that the pipeline is a bad idea.

Price said, "to Matt’s point, we have the same position that the previous administration had. It is a bad deal, it is bad for Europe, it is in contravention of Europe’s own stated energy goals."

And there you go.
