Trump says US is 'locked and loaded' in response to attack on Saudi oil supply

5 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

President Donald Trump said in a tweet on Sunday that America was "locked and loaded" in response to an attack on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities.
The Saturday attacks shut down production on roughly 5% of the world's daily production of crude oil, equal to about 5 million barrels.
Yemen's Houthi rebel group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but US officials have cast doubt on that narrative and have pointed a finger towards Iran.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a tweet on Saturday that Iran launched "an unprecedented attack on the world's energy supply."
