Trump says it appears Iran is behind attacks on Saudi oil facilities
President Trump on Monday said it appears Iran was behind the attack on Saudi oil facilities and suggested that if the US helps militarily the kingdom may have to pick up some of the tab.
“Well, it’s looking that way,” Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about Iranian involvement in the strikes early Saturday.
"We’ll let you know definitively. … That’s being checked out right now.”
Asked if his administration made a commitment to protect the kingdom, Trump said, “No, I haven’t promised the Saudis that. … We have to sit down with the Saudis and work something out.”
But he said Saudi Arabia should make a “big deal” of their defense and take responsibility.
