But Trump wasn't behind these renamings. Sounds to me like it was the Department of Energy.
The Department of Energy is a cabinet level department of the United States Government... From there it is under direct control and supervision of the United States Secretary of Energy... Which is appointed by... You guessed it. Donald Trump.
So you can bet your ass that Trump certainly has an influence.
So at what point did Trump influence "freedom gas" and "molecules of freedom"? "Freedom gas" seems to have been prompted by a reporter:
"Freedom gas. It appears that turn of phrase originated earlier this month, when Secretary of Energy Rick Perry signed an order aimed at doubling U.S. liquefied natural gas shipments to Europe. At a press briefing in Brussels, he explained that the move would help European nations diversify their energy supply away from Russia, the region’s major supplier of gas. “The United States is again delivering a form of freedom to the European continent,” he said. “And rather than in the form of young American soldiers, it’s in the form of liquefied natural gas.” Afterward, a cheeky reporter from EURACTIV asked whether “freedom gas” would be a correct way to describe the new fuel shipments. “I think you may be correct in your observation,” an apparently inspired Perry responded."
