Trump said he got Saudi Arabia to increase oil production. Saudi Arabia won’t say that. It’s just another of Trump’s endless lies.

I may be just a small-town political economist, but I reckon that Saudi Arabia would be awfully hard-pressed to boost oil production by 2 million barrels-per-day. https://t.co/3BhcnvJQnZ

This is also a lie. Saudi agreed to raise oil production already, at an OPEC meeting.
Trump's entire existence is about taking credit for things other people accomplished.https://t.co/LZQJAGVSNP

A senior Saudi official said the kingdom has made no specific promise to President Trump but rather assured the U.S. of its capability to meet oil demand. https://t.co/Qc3TbblYur

Is #Trump manipulating oil reserves to benefit Russia and Saudi Arabia? It sure looks that way to me. We currently have the equivalent of almost 2 years of imports in our reserve. The IEA recommended red line is 3 months. Why is he waiting? https://t.co/TPQfvjgkw8 via @usatoday
