Trump says he expects Russia and Saudi Arabia to cut oil production

Washington (dpa)- US President Donald Trump expects Russia and Saudi Arabia to cut oil production, signalling a possible end to the two countries' crude war.

Trump said in a tweet that the spoke to Mohammed Bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.
"Just spoke to my friend (the Crown Prince) of Saudi Arabia, who spoke with President Putin of Russia, & I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!" Trump's tweet said.
