Great.  you can almost hear the Saudi jihadis fastening their vests.

Finally, telling it like it is. Well done.

His way of being boss of the world is to pee off every country on the world. No wonder American backpackers are advised to have Canadians flags on their backpacks.

Exactly. It's not as if there is a more appropriate way to convey the same substance. Am I right?

I call BS. Trump has never been tough to someone's face. He always says it behind their back after the fact.

I suspect these are things he feels he should have said, and now is doing the Trump thing and lying to pretend he actually did.

Trump is making the world straight. The world took U.S. for granted for long.

The world sure did. That's why America's economy is so low in the world rankings, because the world was screwing America, keeping them down.

Exactly, he's right once again.

We should all hope the King lasts a long time, because the alternative is to buy oil from an entirely different sort of folks within that country. This would not be a happy change, Even without Trump’s love, thr King is a stabilizing force within the region.

Is that why gas is so high in the US, right now? Are we going to have another stunt with a country then at the least minute, things will return to the same situation, while Dump spouts off about some great new deal?

North Korea tells US it will not denuclearise in return for peace treaty

Yep, Canada just recently fell into line too. Finally a fair trade agreement. Well done!

No, Buy from the number 1 energy exporter in the world! U.S.A.

By having the same NAFTA deal? How is the construction of the wall coming along? And has Mexico sent the check yet? Winning!

I've heard of Americans doing this, but never actually met one. I've also never heard anyone advising Americans to do this - where have you seen this?

Canada just recently fell into line too. Finally a fair trade agreement.

Yeah! The last one didn't have US in the name, this one does.

Other than that, it's just NAFTA.

"You don’t need a 2,000-mile wall to send a “keep out” message"

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

So why not the US should depend less on oil and put more effort on renewable resources

2 ( +4 / -2 )

"You don’t need a 2,000-mile wall to send a “keep out” message"

Yeah, you can do it with a $5 dollar sign and a magic marker.

Which would only be slightly less effective than a wall that goes across the entire border. Slightly.

I think Trump is trying to do that with coal.

Strangerland, agreed. Oil prices are creeping up in the US, politically dangerous for Trump. This was likely a backdoor method to get the Saudis to increase production.

Never believe what Trump says.

Saudi Arabia is the world's top oil exporter and the de facto leader of OPEC, which has been criticized by Trump for high oil prices.

Saudi Arabia is also one of the world's top exporter of terrorism and owner of one of the worst human rights records there is.

Trump is literally laughing at the victims of 9/11.

We protect Saudi Arabia. Would you say they're rich. And I love the King, King Salman. But I said 'King - we're protecting you - you might not be there for two weeks without us - you have to pay for your military,'" Trump said to cheers at a rally in Southaven, Mississippi

Trump at a rally is free-range trash, lies and idiocy released from the 140-character cage.

Utter cack.

We all know that Trump often embellishes facts/stories to make them 'better'. And it works, at least with his supporters i.e. "trump said to cheers at a rally in mississipi".

"Donald Trump made an undiplomatic remark"

Can you believe that?

"Finally, telling it like it is. Well done."

That's Trump for you. Never was a politician and never will be.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

That's Trump for you. Never was a politician and never will be.

"The president of the USA is not a politician."

Once again the right shows how it is entirely clueless as to reality.

@goodlucktoyou, Americans have been putting Canadian flags on their backpacks since I - a Canadian - was a teenaged backpacker, and that's fifty years ago.

Trump: I told Saudi king he wouldn't last 2 weeks without U.S. support

...and then the Saudi King says “American wouldn’t last 1 week without Saudi oil.”

I like the man he is stateforward. US had lost a lot before he came to power. Things are going in right direction. He should shape the word order othewise chinese will distroy the whole world. It is time when all the world leader should come togeather and find the way to tame the chinese crooks.

Sometime you need to talk straightforward when the other party was not showing appreciation and gratitude to your help. The Democrat and Republican Politicians should not be shocked or displeased with President Trump undiplomatic talk about Saudi. The US tax payers have been footing the bills for Saudi and other Middle East Countries. Now the President Trump was let them know about they should pay for the US Government spending on the US military defending to their countries' security.

OPEC Oil cartel organization should be taken to World Trade tribunal for the illegal behavior of OPEC controls of Oil output and fixing the Oil price. Only the US Government and Developed Countries can take OPEC to World Trade Organization.

The oil buyers organization should form and fighting against OPEC controlling of oil output and the price. Only Nuclear Power will stop relying on OPEC.
