It appears that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton might actually agree on something: fracking.
During an interview with Denver TV station KUSA, Trump said he's for fracking but he's also for local control over the controversial method of collecting natural gas and petroleum.
"I'm in favor of fracking, but I think that voters should have a big say in it," Trump said. "I mean, there's some areas, maybe they don't want to have fracking. And I think if the voters are voting for it, that's up to them.
"Fracking is something that we need, fracking is something that's here, whether we like it or not. But if a municipality or a state wants to ban fracking, I can understand that."
Trevor Houser, an advisor to Clinton, told Politico at this week's Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia the former first lady also is in favor of granting control at the local level.
"We're going to use every authority we have to ensure that local communities are protected," Houser told the website.
Franking, short for hydraulic fracturing, involves injecting a pressurized solution into rock in order to create cracks, which help fossil fuels flow easier.
It was reported earlier this month that Trump is considering nominating top fracking mogul Harold Hamm to head the Department of Energy should he win the presidential election.
