White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki repeatedly shut down questions about President Joe Biden potentially cutting a deal to import oil from socialist Venezuela on Monday after rumors of such a move, fueled by a U.S. delegation to Caracas, prompted international outrage.
Psaki temporarily ruled out importing Venezuelan oil shortly after polling released in the past week showed a dramatic collapse in support to the Democrats from Hispanic Americans that began during the 2020 election, fueled by concerns that socialists friendly with, among others, the Venezuelan regime had become too powerful within the Party.

Biden sent a delegation to Caracas to visit socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro — who America does not formally recognize as the president of Venezuela, as the National Assembly constitutionally stripped him of that power in 2019 — on March 5.
