Repost from American Thinker.
Back in July, Joe Biden traveled to Saudi Arabia to meet crown prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, the leader of a nation he once pledged to make a “pariah” owing to their ‘human rights’ record.
Democrats had urged Biden to confront Prince Salman over his alleged role in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
But Biden was desperate.
After waging war on energy in the U.S. by shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline a few days after being inaugurated, and restricting drilling and fracking on U.S. soil, Biden was in Saudi Arabia to plead with Prince Salman and OPEC to increase the production of oil to combat the energy crisis. Saudi Arabia is the de facto leader of OPEC+.
In a bid to be cordial, Biden even shared a cordial fist bump with Prince Salman.
The Wall Street Journal revealed that desperate Biden administration officials urged Saudi Arabia to delay the OPEC+ vote to cut oil production until the group’s next meeting.
When will the next meeting occur?
