Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden pushed back at a town hall Thursday against suspicion from a boilermakers union member regarding his position on fracking by insisting that the union endorsed him, when no such endorsement appears to have been given.
During the ABC event, host George Stephanopoulos brought up Biden’s claim that he does not want to ban fracking, while noting that Boilermakers Local 154 member Sean Steffee told the New York Times that this is inconsistent with his goal of ending the use of fossil fuels.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, okay?” Biden responded. “So the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do, number one.”

There’s just one problem – on Sept. 2, the Boilermakers Local 154 union out of Pittsburgh, Penn. released a letter endorsing President Trump.
“It is with great honor that I write this letter to endorse your campaign as you run for re-election of the President of the United States,” wrote John Hughes, the union’s business manager.
Fox News noted in their report that the International Boilermakers Union has made it clear on its website that it has not endorsed anyone.
