Saudi is the reason oil prices have fallen. Us oil corporations tried to pressure them into reducing production so prices would go up and they said NO. One could say he is positioning so corporations win again at the expense of you and I public.

The US exports a lot of oil because the US corporations can make more money off of it by selling to other countries. Yet, we still buy oil from Saudi because they sell it cheaply. So for Trump to do what he said he would have to pass laws managing private corporations.

I thought people wanted less government interference yet so many support Trump who advocates more interference.



NO saudis are afraid fracking will kill their lifestyles. Also we provide alot of Food and water to saudi arabia so we can and should hold that over their heads at all times.

It will be a good idea, the US government had done this over and over for decades in times when it needs to show the middle east who is in charge when it comes to oil.

It was done in the 80s during the Kuwait conflict and 90s during Clinton, one of the way is done is with scaremongering of increased US oil production and cutting Saudi Arabia consumption.

US supplies more oil than Saudi Arabia taking into consideration that US lease the gulf to UK and so areas of Alaska

Actually Canada and Mexico are the two main US suppliers in turn.

I don't know how you came to believe such things.

You say we provide them with food and water, but their food is grown there or purchased with their vast wealth which means they can buy from many different countries and their water is self-provided through various means including desalination plants.

As far as fracking that doesn't really affect them because fracking is for natural gas which can only be useful locally where it is extracted.

I should had been clearer. See We th e US an d others have given them th e tech to DO thos e things. WHat happens if we destroy all of it and remove it as well? Putting Saudi arabi unde r a embargo enforced by th e US navy and airforce is also a option for their terrorist ties.

I am pretty sure the tech they have was bought.

If we destroy all that then steal everything. That would qualify as burning and looting and deserving of the repercussions that would surely follow such tyrant-like behavior.


However we probably wouldn't dare to do that because US intelligence thinks they may have acquired nukes from Pakistan. Nuclear deterrents and all.

It's fracking and everything else.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are fighting Iran on one front and Russia one another front.

The "Front" being natural gas to Europe.

That's what most of the Syria fighting is about.

Russia stands to lose the most if and when somebody else gets pipelines (gas) to Europe.

Even the U.S. is gearing up.

US To Export Liquefied Natural Gas For First Time Ever

Even though the US gave approval for the line in Palm Beach it may never be built. The locals there are fighting it over safety concerns.

As far as Russia pipeline I have been hearing about that for a decade maybe they will work it out soon.

Either way oil demands increase every year so Saudi will have buyers for a long time.

He didnt say he would halt Arabian oil purchasing within hours or even days....

....in fact he didnt say at all how long he would take to fully halt the purchasing of Arabian oil.

Then you end your ignorant banter with insults......good job setting the bar low for yourself early in the thread.

This sounds like he may actually be moving in a direction of letting the Middle East fight their own battles to a point


Doubt they would have so many battles to fight if we never kept occupying their countries and overthrowing their leaders.

If he wins and pulls this off the world could dump the Petro Dollar in favour of something else. The end of the US Empire would begin and the FEMA Camps will over flow.

there are people whose ears need only hear an Arab nation in a bad light to implicitly agree. Of course these words are going to sound 'good' in their ears. whats he average IQ of a trump voter. just say America is great or imply ambiguous superiority, and demonize immigrants and minorities. sounds like his next rally's slogan.

" Yes we have our own oil here in the US and more than enough, but due to regulations and not being able to do what we need to with our own energy freedom due to various reasons that DO need to be explored. "

Yes , we do have enough Oil , Coal , and Natural Gas to be Energy Independent from the Rest of the World . The Only thing Stopping US from doing that is Draconian EPA Regulations and a Obama Administration Hell Bent on Relying on " Green Energies " as our Main Source of Energy that could Never Fill the Needs the Country has right now . A President Trump would try and Change that to the point that U.S. Consumers of Energy would have Domestic Alternatives to the Countries False Dependence on Foreign Oil which Only Exists to back Treasury Bonds that are Drowning in Debt .


You cant do that in 4 years thats not how the economy works, halting all oil at a moments notice from Saud would be a death blow.

You obviously know as much about economics and energy and how it makes the US go round as Trump does.

You cant just STOP over night.

exactly , Trumps policies are dangerous and thought out about as much as a 4th grader thinks about what he wants for dinner.

Such is the juvenile and limited thought process behind Donald Trump and foreign policy

Someone ask him again about the Nuclear Triad please.

Exactly because he never has a plan and has no idea what hes talking about, he comes up with this stuff off the top of his head at a moments notice with no forsight, other than pandering to whoever is in front of him

I find that hilarious coming from a Trump supporter, isnt that the typical MO for Trump and his constituency? Whats wrong, dont like it when its applied back?

My ignorant rant full of truth? Thats cute

Trump supporters shirts should come with the Koolaid Man , busting through the front of them with Trumps hair piece on his head

No its because he didn't go into that detail, and you made the ASSUMPTION that he was talking about just ending the purchasing of the oil instantly.

And look there you go saying that its the Trump supporters MO to insult the people they are debating. Yet you are the only one between the two of us that is throwing insults.

Good job, you stoop to yet an even lower level. Keep digging that hole, you are looking so much more intellectually superior with every insult.

Just another thing I can agree with Trump on. Don't know how he could pull that off, since so many power people would lose money and power from this. But, the quicker this happens the better in my opinion.

SO he says something reasonable that we have ALL been asking for and you pretend like he isnt at war with the establishment over these exact issues?

Everyday you seem more like a globalist secretly hoping nothing changes for the better.
