Saudi Arabia's extension of oil production cuts until the end of 2023 or longer helps ensure energy prices will become an election 2024 debate.

It's also notable that Russia has followed suit with an additional 300,000 barrels per day cut in production.

Bowing is against Islamic practice. As fellow Muslims, we never bow before the Saudi King.. any king.

So if it is not part of Arab culture....WHY on earth are people like Trump and Obama bowing like slaves?

This is why alternative energy sources are the KEY to American independence from foreign influence.

The more we reduce our dependence on these terrorists the better.

Trump curtsies for the King: Donald is mocked for crouching 'like a sparkly princess' in front of Saudi royal (2017)

Awww, the King gave his bitch some jewelry.

Whatever that necklace was worth pales in comparison to the $2 billion they bought Jared with for the nuclear documents dotard stole.

Biden cancels oil and gas leases in the arctic

The goal is to drive up prices to screw Russia while their prices are capped and have them pump at a loss. Even the Saudis are in on it.

It's almost like there is a war going on, and Saudi interests are aligned with US interests as a counter to Russian-Iranian influence which funds terrorism against the Saudis.

Pres Biden is walking a tightrope with Saudi Arabia and Israel.

One point of view...

OpEd: Biden's misguided pursuit of a Saudi-Israel deal

... A Middle East grand bargain could be a grand illusion

From Kissinger to Carter, and from Clinton to Kushner, the urge to broker peace deals in the Middle East is a constant in American diplomacy. Now it is the turn of the Biden administration to set off down this well-trodden path.

The White House is working on a "grand bargain" in the Middle East that would lead to the normalisation of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. To help bring this about, the US is reportedly prepared to offer security guarantees to Saudi Arabia, as well as assistance for a civil nuclear programme. Israel's part of the bargain is that it would offer some concessions towards the Palestinians.

For its promoters, Joe Biden's grand bargain delivers several seductive-sounding "wins". It would extend peace, prosperity and stability in the Middle East. It would bolster the US in the struggle for global influence with China. And it would give Biden a diplomatic achievement to boast about, in time for the 2024 presidential election.

Unfortunately, the reality of the deal could be much less attractive. The US could end up promising to defend an erratic autocracy in Saudi Arabia, while bolstering an Israeli government that is fast eroding its own democracy. Meanwhile, the hoped-for gains " pushback against China and progress for the Palestinians " may never materialise. In that case, the grand bargain will turn out to be a grand illusion.

Relations between Saudi Arabia and the US have been rocky during the Biden administration. The kingdom's de facto ruler, Mohammed bin Salman, was angered by the release of a US government report that accused him of direct involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist. The red-carpet treatment for Xi Jinping when he visited Saudi Arabia, was notably warmer than the reception given to Biden.

Imagine being the party that our enemies try to help elect, too dumb to ask why they're supporting you.

And that LIV m-o-n-ey.

Perhaps he'll attempt to pull a 'Nobel' and suddenly change his public image from 'Merchant of Death' into a awards and ceremony.

He can eat his own body mass and excrete secrets in between flushes.. His legacy could be a toilet that shreds documents?

Trump did curtsy to Salman after being adorned with a Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud, or maybe he was shifting under it's weight.

How.. masculine.
