Donald Trump Warns OPEC Will "Suck The Blood Out Of Any Recovery" By Raising Oil Prices (VIDEO)

Donald Trump offered some words of warning this morning regarding any potential economic recovery in America. Trump is concerned that, as the nation continues to back away from the edge of the cliff, OPEC will begin to raise oil prices, "suck[ing] the blood out of any recovery":

The biggest problem is going to be as we recover, as we get better, OPEC, the oil-producing nations, are going to be raising oil prices and they will suck the blood out of any recovery and therefore the recovery is not going to be great. So unless something is done about OPEC, there is not going to be a great recovery, in my opinion.
