While Trump was in Saudi Arabia, he was cajoled by the Royal Family, who played his ego like a cheap guitar. He made “deals” with the Saudis, including a $110 million agreement to sell them military weapons. Although Trump long claimed that we should not present the Saudis with anything militarily or otherwise, based on their refusal to offer women human rights, and the fact that they openly murder homosexuals, he is now a ‘fan.’
The problem is that his “deals” will assist the Saudis with their efforts to support Muslim extremist groups throughout the world. “Saudi Arabia funds mosques and Islamic schools that teach a fundamentalist version of the faith and undermines any attempts at moderation,” according to The New York Times.
Either Trump is ignorant, or he is refusing to admit the fact that 15 of the 19 terrorists who attacked our nation on September 11, 2001 were Saudi nationals. They are the single largest exporter of terrorists.
Trump is aiding the efforts of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and others to recruit young Muslim men and women. Choosing ignorance instead of the truth is the greatest danger to mankind. “Money makes the world go ’round,” and Trump is funding terrorism which cannot exist without receiving ‘outside’ money.
There will be a thank you note in Trump’s ‘Ramadan card’ from ISIS.
