"I think that what government in the United States needs to do is take the only weapon that it has, which is crude oil. And a sizable chunk of that crude oil is tied up in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. If I were the president of the United States, knowing that the only weapon that I have—I can't do any further sanctioning, Germany and France won't agree with it, Belgium won't agree with it—I'd release crude oil from the SPR."
"That would do a lot of damage to Russia. That would do a lot of benefit to
consumers everywhere, especially with an election coming up."
