US President Joe Biden has ended up with “egg on his face” after deciding to pick a fight with Saudi Arabia all because “he didn’t get what he wanted”, Sky News host Peter Stefanovic says.
It comes as OPEC+ has decided to cut oil production by around two million barrels per day starting in November. President Biden vowed there would be “consequences” for Saudi Arabia over the issue.
Mr Stefanovic said before that could happen, Saudi Arabia had “sunk the boot in” to his administration regarding the president’s July visit to the country.
Saudi officials confirmed a report by the Wall Street Journal that the Biden administration asked Saudi Arabia to delay the cuts until after the midterms to limit political damage if gas prices increased.
