President Trump has authorized the release of U.S. strategic reserves should they be necessary to stabilize markets following a weekend missile attack on Saudi Arabia’s energy infrastructure that his aides blamed on Iran.

Iran denies the U.S. claims.

Over the weekend, Trump tweeted that the U.S. is “locked & loaded”

In a tweet Monday, President Trump explained further…

 

The weekend attack on Saudi Arabia’s biggest oil refinery has jacked up the price of crude oil by ten-percent or more. Oil industry analysts say that will mean higher prices at the pump. The national average price for regular is two-57 a gallon.

Addressing the attack and the U.S. response, Jack & Joe were joined by CBS News military analyst Mike Lyons.
