[size=36]Trump: I spoke with Muhammad bin Salman about oil prices[/size]
, US President Donald Trump confirmed on Thursday that he had spoken with Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman about the current situation in the oil market, expressing his satisfaction with the current level of oil prices.
"I asked him what was happening," Trump told reporters at the White House, on Thursday, in response to a question in this regard. "They have differences with Russia, and this is what pushed oil prices down."
He continued, saying: "I can tell you that oil prices are now at the level that I dreamed of because gasoline prices will drop a lot, and the drop in gasoline prices is tantamount to reducing taxes, and this is a significant tax reduction for the consumer."
It is noteworthy that oil prices have fallen by about 30% since last Monday in the wake of the failure of the "OPEC +" negotiations on reducing oil production, as Russia opposed the proposal to reduce production by an additional 1.5 million barrels. End / 29 s
