Donald Trump, United States President, was also the part of the negotiations, also told in a tweet about that OPEC+ deal by saying that it will rescue thousands of energy jobs in the U.S.

CEO of RDIF, Kirill Dmitriev, said Donald Trump was modest in negotiations. In “capital connection” on Monday, he talked to CNBC that they believe that above two million jobs in the United States will be rescued as a consequence of Trump’s management on this.

He told that the total number of in gas and oil departments of the United States is around 10 million. If you calculate them, other industries would also be affected by this because you are negotiating a large number of jobs. Moreover, he even said that Russian workers and jobs would be affected by this.

On Monday, oil traded mixed in Asia, and United States crude oil would be ramped up by 0.13% at 22.79 dollars, and Brent crude fell 2.06% to 30.83 dollars.

From the beginning of 2020, crude benchmarks are still lower more than fifty percent, Dmitriev of RDIF told that OPEC Plus deal help crude prices dramatically.

He said that oil prices would go below 10 dollars per barrel without having this agreement.
