During his press conference announcing the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Pres. Trump said the U.S. is "securing the oil fields" in Syria.

Following this statement, the president spoke about the U.S. "taking some" of the oil by making a deal with an oil company, citing ExxonMobil as an example.
