Trump threatened Russia with new duties

Washington will not yet introduce additional customs duties against Moscow and Riyadh, as it will be able to do this later if Russia and Saudi Arabia “do not treat fairly” with the United States. This statement was made by US President Donald Trump.

According to Trump, customs duties on China and a number of other countries have brought "an incredible amount of money" to the United States. Therefore, the United States can use this method to normalize the situation in the global oil market.

Am I doing this now? No. Am I thinking about their introduction at the moment? No

- quotes Trump Bloomberg agency.

At the same time, Trump does not even consider the option of lifting or easing the existing sanctions, both in relation to Saudi Arabia and Russia. He is confident that the “dispute” between Moscow and Riyadh “is damaging the rest of the world.”

Trump emphasized that the price of oil now is “like in the 1950s,” “water is now more expensive than oil.” Therefore, he believes that Russia and Saudi Arabia will agree “quickly enough”, the market will “force” them to “stop”. He specified that Russia and Saudi Arabia are now "working very hard."

The US president added that at a meeting with the leaders of American oil companies, the option of potential application of customs duties against Russia and Saudi Arabia was indeed considered.

We remind you that recently Trump wantedso that other countries reduce oil production by 10-15 million barrels per day. At the same time, no one is going to reduce production in the USA.

    Trump emphasized that the price of oil now is “like in the 1950s,” “water is now more expensive than oil.”

    So it is necessary to rejoice that such a price? I would be glad if we had such a price for gasoline. That's just how we get the price of gas? Nobody knows. Against all the laws of economics. As if oil had not become cheaper, gasoline at our gas stations is becoming more and more expensive.

      What's the point

      Customs duty - a mandatory payment levied by the customs authorities in connection with the movement of goods across the customs border (customs borders may differ from state if states are members of economic or customs unions). Payment of customs duty is an integral condition for the import or export of goods and is provided by measures of state coercion.

      There was no answer. I was taught that before asking a question, you need to know 80% of the answer to it.
      So again, but simpler.

      What is the meaning of customs duties? And who pays customs duties?

    According to Trump, customs duties on China and a number of other countries have brought "an incredible amount of money" to the United States.

    Customs duties against Russia will not bring him an "incredible" amount of money, trade relations are minimal, they take the necessary minimum, which they cannot refuse. This is about 13 billion dollars of exports and the same amount of imports. Will duties on such a sum save the "father of American democracy"?
    You can raise duties on titanium, anyway Boeing is in a coma, you can raise duties on engines for missiles, anyway, now is not up to flying to the moon, you can raise duties on oil and start buying it from Venezuela, which, however, means everything Equally buy from Russia, or are there any other options? In general, duties from 13 billion - this is less than the loss of reserves when currency exchange rates fluctuate.
    The effectiveness of such a measure of coercion in relation to Russia is close to zero, it is for this reason that they have not yet been introduced.
    Russia will agree to when it considers it acceptable to itself. There are practically no levers of influence.

      I wrote. Levers are looking and can go to war. An article has already been published here.
      "US Army Begins Military Operation in South America."
      Forget about drug trafficking and other little things. The task is to take control of Venezuela's oil. But "here you are not here." A week ago, one could still count on a bloodless victory. But today amers will have to squeeze oil not from the private company Rosneft, but from the state of Russia.
      Let’s see how much the tower was demolished by Trump and how iron eggs by Putin.

        The relationship between the introduction of duties and the occupation of Venezuela is not entirely clear. If we talk about duties, then Venezuela is mentioned only as a real alternative to Russian oil, no more. More precisely, we are talking about the lack of an alternative for Venezuelan oil is controlled by Russia. And they do not plan to give it to Trump.

          There is no direct connection. There is a desire to control all the oil.

          But you must? Does Trump really need this? Most likely, you will be taken away from you locally or nationalized.

        Where is the Russian Federation and where is Venezuela? The Americans will not act in a straightforward manner, like the Russian Federation, local patriots will take oil, they will nationalize in the end.

    The OPEC + ministers will discuss the urgent problems of the oil market and its stabilization at an online meeting on April 9, rather than 6, as previously planned.

    Our answer to "Chamberlain" !!!
    (Russia's response to the conspiracy of the United States and the Saudis, to capture our oil markets, reduce its cost, by increasing production, to ruin Russia, undermine its position in the global oil market.)

    The Americans were preparing the oil war against Russia, by the hands of the Saudis, long before April 1, when the contract expired between the OPEC + countries.
    The dates of its beginning, they have long agreed with their Saudi puppets.
    Here you have American oil terrorism against Russia in the act of atrocities.

    1. The United States believes that the USSR collapsed due to low oil prices!
    This is not true! The USSR collapsed for other reasons - this is a separate issue and is not about it now. Until now, Americans strongly believe in this. And so, the ruling circles of the United States decided to crank up the oil scam, playing to increase oil production, with their puppets Saudis, to ruin Russia with low oil prices and move it to the market for raw materials.
    But what happened! Russia did not fall apart, but STANDED, and moreover, in the USA there is a collapse of oil industry, which the United States did not even imagine. The Americans, building oil plans with the Saudis against Russia, did not take into account the viral epidemic, which was gaining strength and also helped bring down oil prices, but confused all US oil maps.
    And if it weren’t for the virus, it’s still unknown if this US oil SCAM could help them ruin Russia with low prices for raw materials. However, in fact, we see that Russia has not collapsed and, contrary to US plans, is developing confidently and is fighting the American coronavirus.
    Thus, now Russia has a unique HISTORICAL chance of a very POWERFUL answer to the USA to the illegal sanctions that they imposed against us. How??? The Saudis, under the dictatorship of the United States, backtracked and want to organize a meeting of OPEC + countries and invite more other players, including the United States !!! Shale oil fells in the US due to low prices. They will be followed by the FALL and major American oil producers. The collapse of the US oil industry is inevitable !!!
    Oil has nowhere to go because of an oversupply. All storages are full. WOLCOM's big American oil players howled and began to put pressure on Trump to do something and make the Saudis win back. The Americans did not expect such a reversal. They wanted to HUGE to harm Russia, but in fact they hurt themselves.
    Russia least affected by the loss of the United States and the Saudis !!! Here is the price of the American oil SCAM against Russia.
    2. Our president and government should not send a delegation to this meeting, and if they do, then for the sake of formality, without the right to sign anything on American terms. Against this background, make a statement. Russia does not participate in the conspiracy of the United States and the Saudis to increase oil production, and moreover, it rejects their claims. The United States wanted to ruin Russia with low oil prices, to take away our sales markets, but they collapsed on their own. We dug an oil hole in Russia, but we got into it ourselves !!! Russia needs to deploy this situation against the United States and its illegal sanctions! Russia will not reduce oil production until the United States lifts all its illegal sanctions against Russia. This will be the STRONGEST and GLOBAL shock for the USA and a powerful BLOW under the oil LIFE to the Americans, from which they will not recover !!! Sanctions strike of Russia in the USA - POWERFUL and STRONGEST! They did not expect such a reversal from Russia. Russia has the strongest oil trump card and we can beat them all the American sanctions with ONE MAX !!! Raise this topic and discuss with experts. Russia will be able to dictate the terms of the United States and its puppets, in response to their conspiracy against us.
    The United States can not stand such a pressure of Russia and burst from anger !!!
    American terrorist democracy comes scribe !!!
    Russia will rule the world and establish honest international laws of mutually beneficial cooperation with all countries.
