According to this article, President Trump engineered a diplomatic/economic victory that will prevent hundreds of thousands of U.S. layoffs. At a time when the U.S. economy is faltering, this victory was important. First, it proves that President Trump is a skilled negotiator and diplomat. Next, it’s proof that he isn’t President Putin’s puppet, though the MSM won’t admit that. Third, it’s proof that President Trump will fight for blue collar jobs. In battleground states, that’s a huge commodity.

Christi Craddick, a regulator with the Texas Railroad Commission—which regulates oil in the U.S.’ largest oil-producing state—said Mr. Trump’s “aggressive actions and continued engagement to bring Saudi Arabia and Russia to the table to reduce global oil production was crucial to defending the domestic energy industry” and avoiding a downward spiral in oil prices.

It’s important for laid-off blue collar workers to know that President Trump will fight for their industries. That’s true whether we’re talking about the energy industry or infrastructure projects. At this point, he hasn’t quite painted Democrats into a corner but he’s getting there. If Pelosi and Schumer play obstructionist politics with infrastructure and with re-opening the economy, Democrats will pay a hefty price at the polls this November.

In the end, the U.S. appears to be yielding little, with Saudi Arabia, Russia and their other oil allies expected to bear the brunt of the work rebalancing a historic glut in the market. Some of the cuts are expected to coincide with a natural decline in production due to falling prices.

It isn’t likely that Joe Biden would’ve engaged at this level. It’s virtually certain that he couldn’t have pulled this diplomatic victory off because he’s a terrible negotiator.

    You do not favor low pump prices?

    Only to a point, Eric. Companies still have to make a profit, too.

    PS- Without a profit motive, innovation dies.

    Prices can be $0 but if there’s no incentive to produce, there won’t be any product to buy. I’m sure that thought has never occurred to a progressive socialist though.
