What a moran.

I thought he said Saudi Arabia was going to push their production to unprecedented levels..
 
2018-07-04 06:37:37 PM  
Donnie will do one of two things: Invade Venezuela and grab their oil, or demand someone build a coal-powered auto.

Or both.

"United States defends many of their members for very little $'s."

Like Iraq?
 
2018-07-04 06:38:49 PM  
I take it the Saudis finally told him "how about 'no'?" regarding them increasing their production to offset embargong Iran?

Dismantling OPEC would probably be a boon for the world, but this is not a way to attempt to do so. It just threatens to expand his trade war.

Remember how everyone complained that Hillary would be too emotional because she was a woman and stuff? 

yeah.. good times.

Yo OPEC, you got any more of that light sweet crude?

Or he'll blame people of color. Seems to be a staple of his playbook.

We wouldn't be quite so screwed if they cut us off; but it wouldn't be pretty.

He is the smallest minded President ever.

Trade wars are good and easy to win.

Sounds like he's angling for a bribe large cash real estate purchase from OPEC now.
 
2018-07-04 06:49:44 PM  
Heh, Trump.

I'm getting a new car soon. Please don't fark with OPEC and send gas prices up, you farking moron.
 
2018-07-04 07:21:33 PM  
In what court is he going to sue them?

Could you imagine the world markets if Trump decided to tariff OPEC-participant countries punitively?
 
2018-07-04 07:22:05 PM  
Can we please go one farking week without this guy Trumping something up?

Well, outputs of Zero would be unprecedented.

Damn Dotard, it's the fourth of July. Enjoy a burnt steak with ketchup from one of your restaurants while billing the tax payers or something.
 
2018-07-04 07:37:48 PM  
Not sure why he seems to think it's OPEC's job to "help" keep the price of gas down.  They exist for pretty much the opposite reason...
 
2018-07-04 07:38:44 PM  
How dare these countries do what they want with their own natural resources! They need to get on board with America First, or else!!!

Well I mean you could consider an electric, hybrid or more economical car.  I mean you don't have to buy that big truck.

Awesome.  I'll be able to teach my students what an oil embargo is in real time.

The politics of dancing
The politics of ooh feeling good
The politics of moving, aha
If this message's understood
We're under pressure
Yes we're counting on you
Like what you say
Is what you do
It's in the papers
It's on your tv news
Oh, the application
Is just a point of view
Well you know you can't stop it
When they start to play
You're gonna get out the way
The politics of dancing
The politics of ooh feeling good
The politics of moving, aha
If this message's understood

A president literally just yelling on twitter. What a time to be alive.

Three: arm Israel for an all-out assault on its Arab neighbors to expand its borders from the Suez to the Persian Gulf, providing air and naval support.

Does he not understand how a cartel works? Oh how silly of me, does he understand how anything works?

snowjack: Can we please go one farking week without this guy Trumping something up?


No, that is completely impossible. He is completely unqualified for the job therefore ANYTHING he does is likely to screw something up.
 
2018-07-04 07:45:09 PM  
Here's what I will never, ever, farking EVER understand about the 1980 election.

In 1973 America had to deal with the Oil Crisis. Things kind of sucked there for a while and people hated energy dependence.

Then seven years later they ditch the guy who was working on energy independence in favor of a guy promising V8s and OPEC blowjobs.

What?!?!
 
2018-07-04 07:45:28 PM  
Donnie must be damn near ready to jet, but considering that he has hotels IN those Middle Eastern non-extradition countries, this suggests that he is thinking of somewhere less warm--and let's face it Myanmar is right out, as is pretty much anywhere in Africa for that matter--so there's still Russia or Ukraine...

Ironically, thanks to Trump we actually have to make America great again.

lycanth: OPEC is about as organized as a herd of cats.


Pretty sure "OPEC" here means "Saudi Arabia"

Remember he promised they would increase production to offset an Iranian embargo.

So Trump is going after:

China, the EU, Canada, Mexico, Qatar, and Now Saudi Arabia. Yeah, this seems like great international relations.
