Iran denies role in crippling attacks on Saudi oil facilities; Trump says U.S. ‘locked and loaded’

President Trump said Sunday the United States was prepared to respond to the devastating attacks on two oil installations in Saudi Arabia that cut the state oil company’s production output by half, while Iran rejected U.S. accusations that it was responsible. Trump did not name Iran, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had on
Saturday, nor specify whether he was contemplating a military response.
