After Democrat President Joe Biden folded and went to Saudi Arabia in a desperate bid to drive down oil prices, OPEC and allied oil-producing countries have now announced they will cut oil production. In July, Biden visited Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to beg for help in lowering gas prices after previously bashing the country’s leadership, as Slay News reported. During the 2020 election campaign trail, Biden blasted Saudi Arabia as a “pariah state.”
However, during his Middle East trip to ask foreign nations for help solving his energy crisis, Biden folded in front of the world’s media to fist bump with Saudi leader MBS before they had a private meeting.
Now, in an embarrassing blow, the Saudis have just pulled the rug from under Biden by cutting oil production rather than increasing it.
