The Trump administration is working diligently to make Saudi Arabia great again, having secured a weapons cache totaling over $100 billion for the Islamist kingdom. It was reported that Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and his influential advisor, called up the CEO of Lockheed Martin to secure the deal himself.
The New York Times issued a report yesterday describing Kushner’s “personal touch” on a $110 billion weapons deal brokered at the behest of the Saudis. Kushner called Marillyn A. Hewson, chief executive of infamous defense contractor Lockheed Martin, to persuade her to lower the price tag for his Saudi cronies.
“The Trump administration is expected to frame the deal, worth about $110 billion over 10 years, as a symbol of America’s renewed commitment to security in the Persian Gulf. But former officials pointed out that President Barack Obama, whose arms sales to Saudi Arabia totaled $115 billion, had already approved several of the weapons in the package,” the Times report stated.
A continuity of agenda from the previous administration is not what Trump’s voters were likely expecting when they elected him to “drain the swamp.” Kushner, whose liberal family has been bankrolled by George Soros, is clearly influencing the President in a more conventional political direction than his electoral mandate. Trump had previously complained about the Saudis not paying their fair share to the United States in return for protection.
“Frankly, Saudi Arabia has not treated us fairly, because we are losing a tremendous amount of money in defending Saudi Arabia,” Trump said.
However, it is difficult to understand why Saudi Arabia would ever be compelled to pay more to the United States when they keep receiving incredible deals from the Trump administration and the elite corporations allied with the White House. Saudi Arabia, an Islamic dictatorship, has one of the most despicable records of human rights violations of any country throughout the entire world.
