American sheik Donald Trump enjoyed playing footsie and finance with the Saudi Arabian leaders. Flashing his new Saudi medal, is he now living the harem life of Rudolph Valentino? Or is he aware that those 15 Saudi terrorists murdered more than 3,000 Americans on that terrible day in 2001?
Does Trump also remember that the Saudi cartels were responsible for kiting the price of oil by cutting off shipments to the US in 1973. To the glee of the Saudis, it caused long lines at American gas stations and unending price rises we still suffer today.
Gas at the pump prices that year immediately skyrocketed from 35¢ a gallon to $1, $2 and beyond. That was just the beginning. The ever-increasing cost of the Saudi fuel sent the entire U.S. economy into continuing inflation. If you’re old enough to remember, consider 1973 prices of cars, houses, groceries and everything else compared to today’s inflated costs.
Of course, business is business, and billionaire tycoon Trump is busting out with all kinds of multi-billion-dollar deals he wrangled from the Saudis. Maybe when they decide to raise the price of a gallon of gas to $10 and beyond, the President may wake up. He may suddenly realize that the royal bathrobe and burka Saudi sheiks are not his loving harem.
