Joe Biden has an upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia.
Initially, the belief was that Biden was going to get down on his hands and knees to beg the Saudis to produce more oil.
However, after talking to the president of France, who has already broached this subject with Saudi Arabia, the plan has changed rather dramatically.
Put It in Reverse
Like everyone else, the Saudis are reportedly at full capacity.
According to President Macron, they will not be able to produce more for another six months, and that will only be a minimal increase.
Point being, if Joe asks for more oil, he is going to look foolish.
Now he is saying that is “not the purpose of the trip,” even though that was the purpose up until Biden got the bad news.
Biden stated, “Well, first of all, that’s not the purpose of the trip.
“The Israelis believe it is really important that I make the trip.
“What we’re talking about in dealing with that trip before I go, as I said, going to Israel to meet with the Israeli leaders to affirm the unbreakable bond Israel and the United States have.”
He concluded, “And that is why Israeli leaders have come out so strongly for my going to Saudi.”
Joe Biden then decided to push the Russian narrative on oil and rising food costs.
He stated, “The bottom line is, ultimately, the reason why gas prices are up is because of Russia, Russia, Russia.
“The reason why the food crisis exists is because of Russia, Russia, not allowing grain to get out of Ukraine.”
It is a tired narrative and one that has already been debunked, yet the media continues to allow him to press this angle even though everyone in the country knows prices were way up long before Russia invaded Ukraine.
