Trump told Saudi King he wouldn’t last ‘2 weeks’ without US support

As oil prices have risen above US$80 a barrel, Trump has heaped more pressure on the world's top exporter of crude to do more to subdue the market and reimburse the costs of American military presence in the region.

While Trump failed to mention when the undiplomatic remarks were made to King Salman, it is known that the two leaders held a phone conversation on Saturday to discuss global oil supplies.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday said Saudi Arabia's king "might not be there for two weeks" without US military support, as he sought to pressure the close American ally over rising oil prices.

Falih, speaking at a Moscow energy conference, said Saudi Arabia was in weekly communication with Russian Federation to stabilise global oil markets, which have surged over the past few weeks.

The price of USA crude oil has increased sharply ahead of U.S. sanctions on Iran and on concerns about Venezuelan output but further strong gains in the immediate future seem unlikely.

Trump criticized oil producers in his speech before the U.N. General Assembly last week.

Oil prices have been climbing as buyers have already started steering clear of Iran before the implementation of USA sanctions starting November 4.

The average cost of a gallon (3.78 litres) of petrol in the United States was $3 in May, according to AP.

Saudi Arabia's oil output has reached record highs - and the country could further boost production next month as U.S. sanctions on Iran edge closer. Last year Trump made Saudi Arabia his first stop on his maiden worldwide trip as a president.

Qatar has denied the allegations.

King Salman but I said, 'King, we are protecting you.

The US crude oil price is pausing for breath after its strong advance ahead of US sanctions on Iran, which take effect on November 4.

The US military was stationed in Saudi Arabia from the first Gulf War against Iraq in 1990 to 2003, when then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced pullout.
