Trump to discuss oil with Putin on Monday

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday he will speak with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin later in the day. The two will discuss oil, among other things, he told Fox and Friends.

Regarding sanctions on Russia, Trump stated that he's "been tougher on Russia than any president in the history of the country" and would not give in to Putin's pleas to end the punitive measures. "He's been asking that for two years," according to Trump.

Oil prices have been in freefall since Saudi Arabia initiated a price war against Russia following failed OPEC+ negotiations on extending and deepening production cuts.
