The Trump administration is attempting to pin down blame for the oil-field attacks over the weekend.
Of course, the US president has not "always" said that. I think you know we've done more sanctions on Iran than anybody.
At least three US officials have blamed Iran for an attack on major Saudi oil facilities on Saturday, although Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the strikes on same day.

Meanwhile, Saudi's energy minister, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, announced Tuesday that half of the oil production cut by the attacks has been restored and that the kingdom expects to be producing 11 million barrels a day by the end of September, compared to 9.6 million before the attacks. While European governments have been battling to save the Iran nuclear deal, clear-cut evidence that Tehran was behind the attacks could drain the political capital sustaining their efforts. "So I don't believe I need to, but if we want to use strategic oil reserves, I would open them up". Britain, nurturing its "special relationship" with the U.S. as Brexit looms, has signed up.
