White House Praise of Exxon's $20 Billion Investment Ripped From Company's Press Release
The world’s biggest oil explorer says it is set to invest $20 billion in the US Gulf Coast region, creating thousands of jobs. The White House said the exact same thing, as it plagiarized ExxonMobil’s statement.
On Monday, Exxon Mobil announced it would be expanding its manufacturing capacity at 11 new and existing sites in Texas and Louisiana as a part of its Growing the Gulf initiative. With a $20 billion investment, they are expected to create 35,000 temporary construction jobs and 12,000 full-time positions in the region.
Half an hour after Exxon made the announcement, the White House also released a statement, praising the initiative.
