Trump suggests countries pay up if they want US protection in strait of Hormuz

The president of the United States

In a recent tweet, the president of the US suggested that countries should start to pay up for the protection of their oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz. "So why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation?", he asks on a post on his Twitter account. These safety concerns come as a result of the explosions of the Japanese and the Norwegian tankers in the Gulf of Oman earlier this month, followed by the US drone that was shot down last week.
