As the President touched down in the wealthy Middle Eastern nation, it was apparent that he would receive far better treatment than his predecessor, former President Barack Obama did. A literal red carpet was unfurled for the President, along with a show horse escort for the presidential motorcade, and the awarding of the Saudi’s highest honor all awaited Trump as he embarked on his first international diplomatic jaunt as Commander in Chief.
When it came to doing business, however, Trump was just as assertive as ever that the American people must benefit from his actions as President.
As the Hill is reporting, President Trump and the Saudi king just signed a $110 billion dollar defense deal.
The deal is huge on many levels. Saudi Arabia needs to strengthen their defenses and needs new equipment to face the two main threats to their country – Islamic terror and Iran.
By the way Barack, Islamic terror and Iran are our enemies too – why did you stop helping the Saudi’s and turn towards Iran?
It was a classic Obama blunder. He led with arrogance and ended in disgrace.
So confident was Obama in his ability to solve the crisis that he ignored our long-time allies and embraced our flat out enemy.
It was a debacle that ended in the now infamous Iran nuke deal. Trump is making no such mistakes.
Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson joined Saudi King Salman at the signing ceremony to send the unmistakable signal to Iran and ISIS: the jig is up.
The deal includes top of the line equipment such as missiles, bombs, armored personnel carriers, Littoral Combat Ships, THAAD missile defense systems, and various types of munitions.
But this deal was not just about shoring up the world’s defenses against ISIS and Iran, it was also about jobs in America.
See Barack, it is possible to make the world safer and add jobs to the US you blundering fool.
Thank God we have Trump.
“That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States. Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs,” Trump said.
By cozying up to the Saudis in such a way, President Trump has not only bolstered the alliance between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, but also guaranteed their helping hand in fighting international terrorism in the region. This could, in effect, reduce the number of U.S. casualties in the Middle East by allowing Saudi Arabian forces and weaponry to take the place of American service men and women.
Furthermore, the deal will create an untold number of American jobs, as our highly skilled workforce is mobilized to fulfill the order of armaments being sent to the region.
