The largest oil producer in the world is the United States.  The U.S. does not import the majority of its oil from Saudi Arabia.  In fact, it’s a small percentage when compared to Canada.

The Trump tweet that’s attracting attention this morning is filled with falsehoods as the President looks to justify his relationship with the Saudis.

From The Washington Post:

“He’s a piece of work,” said Nancy Tengler, chief investment officer at Heartland Financial. “It’s all supply, that is the issue. The U.S. is producing 11.5 million barrels a day. We are largest producer in the world. There’s just more supply than demand currently. If Saudi Arabia keeps pumping and exemptions to Iran stay in place, prices are going to stay low.”

So a day after Donald Trump said he was standing with the Saudis over a murder they did do, he’s now chosen to thank them for something they didn’t.
