Saudi Arabia won't last without USA support

Trump: Saudi King wouldn't last 'two weeks' without US support

"You have to pay for your military", Trump told a campaign rally in Southaven.

"I love the king, King Salman, but I said, 'King, we're protecting you, '" Trump says at a campaign rally in MS, without elaborating on when he spoke to King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

Oil prices have risen in recent weeks ahead of U.S. sanctions on Iran - set to be imposed early next month.

"Iran is the main supportive factor and is a test to the spare capacity of Saudi Arabia", said Petromatrix analyst Olivier Jakob.

Trump has yet to demand payment for keeping United States troops in the oil-rich region, but the U.S. president did urge them to lower oil prices in return for security last week. Saudi Arabia was the U.S. leader's first stop during his first global tour as president previous year. His administration, particularly his son-in-law Jared Kushner, has sought a close relationship with King Salman's son Mohammed bin Salman, the country's crown price and next in line to the throne.

Manchester United charged over late arrival for Valencia game by Uefa
United won their first match of the Champions League group stage against Young Boys, but had to make do with a point today. It is a very hard group, yes. "It will be good for the team if we can beat Newcastle ".

Brent crude oil was trading at $84.65 (£65.09) per barrel this afternoon, having dropped from a high of $85.33 earlier in the day and near the four-year high it reached on Monday.

Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation have increased production as a result but last month Opec and non-Opec members ruled out a further hike to compensate for the expected 2m barrel a day loss from Iran. USA crude CLc1 settled $1.18, or 1.6 percent, higher at $76.41 a barrel, after touching a session high of $76.90.

Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in NY last month, Trump accused OPEC members of "ripping off the rest of the world". That would be just short of the record high for Saudi output of 10.72 million bpd in November 2016. The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in the U.S.is $2.88, up from $2.55 a year ago, according to AAA.

"OPEC and OPEC nations are, as usual, ripping off the rest of the world, and I don't like it".

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. "We want them to start lowering prices and they must contribute substantially to military protection from now on".
