President Trump went off-script once-again during his commencement address at the US Naval Academy in Maryland Friday; scrapping his plans to leave after his remarks and vowing to stay “for hours” to shake every graduates hand.
The President was speaking before the graduating class of 2018 when he asked the audience if he should leave following his address, stay and greet the top-ranking class members, or meet every student.

AMERICA FIRST: US to Become World’s TOP OIL Exporter Next Year
Energy industry insiders announced Friday that the United States is poised to become the world’ largest oil exporter; surpassing Saudi Arabia for the first time as early as next year.
According to Citigroup, the US currently produces approximately 8.3 million barrels of crude and refined oil per day compared with Saudi Arabia’s 9.3 million barrels.
Expanding American business and energy operations throughout the country are expected to boost those figures within months.
“Saudi Arabia has also trimmed its oil production more than 100 percent of the output cuts it agreed to under the January 2017 production deal. In March, Saudi crude production was at 9.91 million bpd, below the deal’s output target of 10.058 million bpd,” writes OilPrice.
The new projections fulfill a major campaign promise from President Donald Trump, who vowed to open new areas and unleash energy sector businesses to help make the United States energy independent.

“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!” Trump quipped.
