Trump says he brokered deal with Saudi, Russia for huge oil cutsU.S President Donald Trump said on Thursday he had brokered a deal with top oil producers Russia and Saudi Arabia to cut output and arrest an oil price rout amid a global coronavirus pandemic, sending crude prices up by 45%. Trump said he spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and now expected the two nations to cut output by 10 million barrels per day (bpd) – an unprecedented number representing 10% of global supply. Trump said cuts could amount to as much as 15 million bpd but didn’t say whether the United States, the world’s largest oil producer, would contribute to reductions, a move which is forbidden by U.S. antitrust legislation.
