Listen: World watches warily as US presidential candidates comment on crude oil

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's proposal to ban US imports of Saudi Arabian crude appears unfeasible, but is the plan already damaging fragile ties with the Saudis and other overseas allies? Platts senior oil editor Brian Scheid looks at the market impacts of Trump's views of global crude flows, a chill the presidential race is having on investment in the US oil sector and the impact Trump's proposal may have on OPEC action.

Scheid is joined by George David Banks, an executive vice president with the American Council for Capital Formation and a former senior energy adviser to President George W. Bush; James Koehler, associate director of Berkeley Research Group's international energy and natural resources practice; David Goldwyn, president of Goldwyn Global Strategies and the State Department's special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs from 2008 to 2011; and Tim Worstall, a fellow at the Adam Smith Institute in London.
