All roads lead to Putin: Trump pressured Saudis to cut oil production in 2020 to raise global prices

Okay, let’s be fair about this. You could argue that the U.S. had a legitimate interest in propping up global oil prices during the COVID-caused 2020 recession in order to aid domestic producers. I figured I’d be fair at the outset because MAGAs never are, particularly when it comes to this issue. They seem to think gas prices are high right now because Joe Biden decided to press the big red “Evil” button on the Resolute Desk, ensuring that gas became prohibitively expensive, baby’s blood smoothies were sold at cost at every Jamba Juice, and something-something George Soros.

Couldn’t have anything to do with a global economic recovery that sent prices soaring pretty much across the board worldwide. Nah. Must be Biden and his blackhearted anti-American schemes. After all, this would have never happened under Trump! Possibly because half the country would have put themselves in suspended-animation pods for four years had he won, seriously depressing energy demand as well as any marginally cogent person who wasn’t in a suspended-animation pod.
