President Donald Trump’s energy policies are good for the petroleum industry and Saudi Arabia sees no problem with growth in U.S. oil production as long as it’s in line with demand, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said.

“President Trump has policies which are good for the oil industries,” Al-Falih said in an interview with the BBC. “He has steered away from excessively anti-fossil-fuel, unrealistic fossil-fuel policies.”
