President Donald Trump continues to make life as hard for the incoming administration as possible. The Wall Street Journal said the outgoing administration is drawing up plans to order a further drawdown of US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan by January 15, five days before he leaves office. The so-called OPEC+ bloc of oil producers will hold a virtual meeting of technical experts to review the state of the oil market, two weeks before its ministers decide on the bloc’s output policy for the coming months.
