Trump Signs $ 150-350 Billion Arms Deal With Saudis

It would seem that President Trump could not make such a deal unilaterally without the approval and funding from the House of Representatives and then on to the U.S. Senate.

 

Are the Saudi’s seriously that important of an ally with the current battles the U.S. Military is fighting in The Middle East and Africa?

 

This certainly smells of making sure the “Military industrial complex,” is being fed well by the U.S. Taxpayers.

One hundred billion dollars up to $350 billion could go a long way toward rebuilding America’s infrastructure.

Our highways dams and bridges are in horrible shape and these monies could greatly help with needed improvements.

President Donald Trump will reportedly announce an arms deal with Saudi Arabia that could be worth as much as $350 billion during his upcoming trip overseas.

According to The Independent, former President Barack Obama sold $60 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia.

The latest deal involving Trump seems to have a larger goal in mind: the creation of an alliance between Gulf states that would be similar to NATO.

 

 

Reuters reported last Friday that the deal could be worth $100 billion in American arms and maintenance.

The $350 billion figure would be the value of the deal over 10 years.

Wednesday that Trump will present his plans to Saudi Arabian officials in Riyadh about what the White House is calling an “Arab NATO.”

A senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have been negotiating the idea since before Trump took office.

“We all have the same enemy and we all want the same thing,” a senior White House official told the Post. “What this trip hopefully will do is just change the environment.”

    My wife and I watched the pomp and circumstance from the Saudis and found it much more significant than celebrations in Israel. But what we found strange is the Saudis welcomed President Trump and Melania, the king shook Melania’s hand, Melania and Ivanka went without headscarf, and were welcomed into their meeting area without headscarf in a room mostly devoid otherwise of women, but when Trump was in Israel, he wore a yarmulke, and was without Melania at the Wall because there’s a male side and female side.

    So, they disrespect muslim custom but willingly engage in a custom not characteristic of Christianty and accept the sexist practice of separating men and women.

    Am I missing something? And Trump visits the Church of the Holy Sepulchre but there’s zero coverage about his visit?
