Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at the Annual Williston Basin Petroleum Conference.

The conference is put on every year for anyone who is interested in the gas and oil business in the Williston Basin.

In the past, Trump has mentioned that he wants to seize the oil from the Middle East in order to gain more control in the region. However, Trump has also been quoted as saying, “the reason we’re in the Middle East is for oil, and all of a sudden we’re finding out that there’s less reason to be there now.”

Several other high profile individuals are scheduled to speak at the conference including legendary former college football coach Lou Holtz. A full list of speakers can be found here.

The conference will be held at the Bismarck Event Center May 24-26.
