Biden Admin Claimed Trip To Saudi Arabia Wasn’t About Oil.

    President Joe Biden's (D) administration has repeatedly claimed, including as recently as today, that the trip the president took to Saudi Arabia over the summer had nothing to do with oil.

    However, a new report from The New York Times outlined a "secret deal" that the administration had with the kingdom, which Saudi Arabia later turned on.

    Biden officials began meeting with the Saudis in the spring and allegedly secured a "private oil deal" in which the kingdom would get the OPEC oil cartel to increase their output of oil by 400,000 barrels per day starting in July instead of the previously planned September.

    The officials then believed that they had gotten the kingdom to agree to increasing production by an additional 200,000 barrels per day starting in September and lasting the rest of the year.

    OPEC announced on June 2 the administration's desired action for an accelerated timeline of the additional 400,000 barrels per day. That same day, Biden announced that he was making a trip to Saudi Arabia.

    When Biden got to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on July 15, the price of oil was starting to come down.

    When he met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the country's day-to-day leader, the Saudis presented the administration with charts that showed that the price of oil had fallen and promised that they would increase oil production to a staggering 11 million barrels per day, which the report noted the country "had reached for only a few months in total over the past several years."

    Biden's team thought they secured the deal, but Saudi officials were privately telling others that they had no plans to go through with it.

    The report noted that the first warning came in August when OPEC announced only a 100,000 barrel increase in oil production, half of what was expected. Several weeks later, OPEC announced it was cutting the 100,000 barrel increase.

    The administration then learned that the kingdom was going to cut production and they desperately tried to stop them, but nothing worked.

    The report effectively said that the Biden administration was clueless as to why the kingdom stabbed them in the back on their "secret deal."

    It's worth noting that Biden repeatedly attacked the crown prince and the country while on the campaign trail, the administration has taken a stand against Saudi Arabia in their war in Yemen, and they are working with Saudi Arabia's top enemy in the region: Iran. The Wall Street Journal added that Biden refused to talk to the crown prince for over a year and when he went to Saudi Arabia, officials there did not feel like Biden wanted to be there.

    Biden and the Democrats have responded to Saudi Arabia's decision to cut oil production by threatening to take various punitive actions against the kingdom, ranging from economic measures to reducing their military capabilities.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
