Donald Trump predicted US dependence on Russian and Middle Eastern oil

26

The United States will soon become dependent on Russian and Middle Eastern oil. This was stated by former US President Donald Trump.


Speaking at a conference of conservative circles in the United States (CPAC 2021) held in Florida on Sunday, Trump said that as president, he managed to make the United States "an energy superpower - more than Russia and Saudi Arabia", but under the new President Joe Biden, the United States will become dependent on Russian and Middle Eastern oil.

Under the radical democrats, the price of gasoline has already risen by a third. We will now depend on Russia and the Middle East for oil supplies

- said the ex-president.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed him, however, according to tradition, he mentioned not Russia, but China, for which he has "warm" feelings. According to Pompeo, Joe Biden's policies will weaken the American economy, which China will certainly take advantage of. He criticized the new administration for refusing to build an oil pipeline through which the United States could receive oil from Canada.

Following Trump, Pompeo criticized Washington's decision to return to the Paris climate agreement, saying that "the Chinese leadership" was happy about it, and "American workers" had lost.

Trump, meanwhile, has confirmed that he is not going to create a new party, saying that he "has a Republican" and in the next elections they will demonstrate "an unprecedented unity."

      Here Trump is cool now. He knows how to criticize, accessible and intelligible to the population. The Democrats will love to shut him up.
      good

      Anyway, let him return to the presidency. It was more interesting with him.

        This is for sure, although he lost the "election", but he patted the Democrats, and now the thrill is "like a hot water bottle Tuzik."

        Well, yes, well, yes ... although this "young" is less than a month in power and no one knows what he will throw out. Although I agree. Come back to power now Trump will not care for anyone until he flushes these "Democrats" into the "toilet bowl"

        Not profitable for Russia. He's too good a president for America. Better democrats with their eternal mess.

      This is not entirely true. Even Hugo Chavez, although he kicked American oil companies out of the country, in 2008, by a court order (who would doubt another decision), the US authorities froze the assets of Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA in the amount of $ 12 billion. And oil immediately rushed up
      I did not find when Venezuela began again oil supplies to the United States, but in 2019 the United States again stirred up and froze $ 7 billion. those. it must be understood that the previous disagreements were removed. But after they re-emerged.
      Venezuela is now actively selling oil to China. At the same time, I do not give a damn about all OPEC decisions and other world agreements to reduce oil production.
      The United States, of course, is in wild anger, a fat piece flies past and the next sanctions, and again who would doubt it, but now against the Chinese companies that export oil from Venezuela. But with the Chinese economy, it’s about nothing.
      Here is a clash of our interests, our owners of the oil field and Venezuela, there is a state-owned company selling oil to China. Venezuelan oil, despite the fact that it comes from the other end of the ball, turned out to be cheaper than ours, which flows through the pipe.

    The ability to "take revenge in a blizzard" has always distinguished presidents, both former and current, and not only American ones.

    Agent Danila beats the democrats with their own weapons. So what if the price has risen because the economies of Russia and China have revived, the coronavirus is overrun? Did it fall under Trump due to a pandemic?

        In pascals, in pascals ... In Newtons it is too abstract, abstruse and generally undemocratic, but purely republican. And for those who are used to inflating bubbles, Pascal is the very thing (see the work of rating agencies and different exchanges there) smile

            According to the ratings, you correctly noticed - they are in the top. Ratings - they know how. I just remember that non-rated Russia, which was so broken by the 90s in the XNUMXs, built a technology for producing MOX fuel from weapons-grade plutonium for reprocessing, and then built a waste-free reactor on this basis. this is all purely the work of the research institute. But the rating USA with its rating universities is still driving fuel for reprocessing to France, the treaty on the reduction of nuclear weapons is precisely because they do not know how to process plutonium - just ... repeat Waste-free reactors? What are you, son, this is fantastic! And they have already reached the point that not being able not only to process, but even to get fresh weapon-grade plutonium - they got to the point that they saw the old blocks for manure, they bury half of them, because there is nothing to process, and from the remains they mold what will come off ... this is under the program of transition to tactical nuclear weapons. And how not to go over if there is no plutonium?
            Or here - there you go. For a person, even a little bit in the subject - this is not just an adecdote, I laughed like a horse, and my colleagues did not believe me that striped people are SO stupid.

          I still laugh when I remember a state employee who had to pay me for the transshipment of 6 tons at $ 7,50, and 55 per hour of work. I told him, "pay 100 bucks." He looked at me for a long time, and then he counted twice on the calculator and mumbled - "Right!"

    wise man, however ... only who will believe him, now, especially there, beyond the okey.
    Even if this happens, they will insist that this is an intrigue ... an intrigue, in short.

    will demonstrate "unprecedented unity".
    So far, an unprecedented unity has been demonstrated by all sorts of liberals, colorful and iridescent, with the direct support of democrats, international financiers and IT corporations. Here guys, you can't do without a civil or even world war. Not the first time. But if the civil war in the states does not bother me much (let them try their own medicine), then the world war is pretty worried.
