U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he had brokered a deal with top crude producers Russia and Saudi Arabia to cut output and arrest an oil price rout amid the global coronavirus pandemic, though details of how cuts would work were unclear. Trump said he spoke with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Thursday. “I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Here we have yet another piece of the puzzle, where Trump says, out loud, that he’s got a connection to Putin ….and is proud that his affiliation with Putin led to higher oil prices worldwide.
And no one in the “liberal” media or sadly, the Democratic Party in D.C. is reminding voters about it.
