Last week, President Biden visited Saudi Arabia for a conference and had a state visit with MBS.
The visit was supposed to mend relations with the oil giant after the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Biden was also supposed to pressure Saudi Arabia to produce more oil to bring down prices and lift pressure off of US and European consumers.
The visit quickly took a turn for the worse after Biden was pictured fist bumping MBS and was attacked for not confronting him about Khashoggi’s murder.
Biden and MBS engaged in a war of words after Biden returned from Saudi Arabia. Biden claimed that he did confront MBS while a spokesperson for the Saudi government said that Khashoggi was never mentioned.

Saudi Arabia reportedly made no agreement to increase oil production.
After Biden was laughed out of Riyadh, he seems ready to give the Iranian government more concessions in hopes that they will produce oil to bring down prices.

Kirby reiterated the goal of the deal is to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, but it could produce other gains.
“Well, look, I mean, there’s obviously a tangential, potentially tangential benefit,” Kirby said when asked about recent remarks by Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, who framed the return of the deal as a way to bolster the global oil supply.
Sherman made her comment on July 12, during an interview at the International Student House of Washington.
“They would get sanctions relief,” she said. “They would improve their economy and sell their oil again, and the world needs their oil, so they could get a good price for it. It’s all in their interest to do this.”
American energy producers were quick to respond. “It is a lot simpler to consult with US oil and natural gas producers on ways to increase production to meet growing global demand than the administration’s ethical and geopolitical contortions with totalitarian regimes,” Jason Modglin, president of Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, told Fox News in a statement.
