Saudi Arabia's leadership is clearly not happy with Joe Biden.
The United States and the Saudis have had an unwritten agreement for decades, which appears to now be in jeopardy because of Joe.
Biden continues to play tough guy when it is the Saudis that actually have all the leverage.
Flipping the Script
The statement by Biden that the Saudis have sided with the Russians does not seem to be sitting well.
To that point, the Saudis have flipped the script, now accusing Joe Biden of being the one manipulating the market.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman did not mention Biden by name, but it was very clear about whom he was speaking.
He stated, "People are depleting their emergency stocks, had depleted it, used it as a mechanism to manipulate markets while its profound purpose was to mitigate shortage of supply.”
Then the Prince laid down the gauntlet, stating that it was his "profound duty to make it clear to the world that losing emergency stock may become painful in the months to come."
Fox News also took a look at these rising tensions...
Joe Biden is threatening the Saudis with sanctions of some sort, but he has zero leverage against them right now.
As long as we are not energy independent, we are at their mercy, only Biden seems to be the only one in the room that does not realize that.
