Trump Threatens Middle Eastern Countries over Oil Prices: 'OPEC Monopoly Must Get Prices Down Now'

President Trump on Thursday suggested that the U.S. may reconsider military support for countries in the Middle East if members of OPEC don't bring down oil prices. "We protect the countries of the Middle East, they would not be safe for very long without us, and yet they continue to push for higher and higher oil prices! We will remember. The OPEC monopoly must get prices down now!" Trump tweeted.
