Trump: Other Countries Should Protect "their own ships" in Strait of Hormuz
Trump Tweeted today:

"China gets 91% of its Oil from the Straight, Japan 62%, & many other countries likewise. So why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation. All of these countries should be protecting their own ships on what has always been....

....a dangerous journey. We don’t even need to be there in that the U.S. has just become (by far) the largest producer of Energy anywhere in the world! The U.S. request for Iran is very simple - No Nuclear Weapons and No Further Sponsoring of Terror!"

Trump sent a message to KSA/UAE/Bahrain - if you are thinking we will protect you if Iran closes Strait of Hormuz, maybe think again (or: pay me more money).
