Joe Biden Stalls ‘Consequences’ for Saudi Arabia Until After Midterms
President Joe Biden revealed Wednesday he would wait until after the midterms to change America’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, punting on any action until Congress returns to Washington, DC.
“We’re going to react to Saudi Arabia, and they’re doing consultation when they come back,” he said, referring to Congress. “And we will take action.”
Congress is not expected to return to Washington, DC, until mid-November, after the midterm elections.
Biden’s remarks indicate he is not interested in a showdown with Saudi Arabia over oil prices before the midterm elections.
