I told Saudi king he wouldn't last without USA support: Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump with Saudi Arabia's King Salman I

"We protect Saudi Arabia".

Saudi Arabia is the world's top oil exporter and the de facto leader of OPEC.

US crude inventories rose by 907,000 barrels, the American Petroleum Institute said on Tuesday, ahead of Wednesday's official supply report due at 1430 GMT.

US President Donald Trump has claimed that he told Saudi Arabia's King Salman he would not last in power "for two weeks" without the backing of the US military. If the White House was informed about the secret private deal, it didn't seem to resolve Trump's concerns.

He's too big, too strong, too quick, too good on the ball, he loves fighting, good head of hair". After a frustrating few years, the good times are certainly back for Sturridge.

Trump criticized oil producers in his speech before the U.N. General Assembly last week. It demonstrates that the Saudis do not want to be perceived as doing Trump's bidding. However, analysts are warning prices could go up to $100 a barrel as the world's production is already stretched and Mr. Trump's sanctions on Iran's oil industry take effect in early November. After all, Brent surged to $85 per barrel in recent days, evidence that oil traders are not convinced about OPEC's strategy.

On Wednesday, Saudi oil minister Khalid al-Falih confirmed the increase in supply, telling reporters that Saudi output now stands at 10.7 million barrels per day (mb/d), right around the country's all-time record high. There is also an American military presence in the UAE, Iraq, Jordan, and Oman, which can rush to help Saudi Arabia at a moment's notice.

Russian output rose 150,000 bpd in September.

So far, OPEC has ruled out any further production increase, beyond fully delivering the boost agreed in June. Those are serious numbers, and should be taken with a grain of salt, but they offer a window into the thinking in Moscow.

According to Saudi state news agency, Trump called King Salman on Saturday to discuss efforts to maintain supplies to ensure oil market stability and global economic growth.

"We're meeting every single demand for barrels", Al-Falih said.

"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.
