Trump Says The U.S. May Go To War For Saudi Arabia Because They ‘Pay Cash’

Donald Trump takes his position as Commander in Chief of America’s armed forces very seriously. But to be clear he thinks of those armed forces as a mercenary army to be hired out by the highest bidder, or so the President’s recent comments about Saudi Arabia’s cash suggest.

When asked about his stance on Saudi Arabia on Monday and the possibility of the U.S. going to war to defend Saudi interests Trump proved once again that we’ve elected a used car salesman to the highest office in the land, saying the US could support Saudi Arabia because, unlike some other allies, they “pay cash.”

“They’ve been a great ally. They spent $400 billion dollars in our country over the last number of years. $400 billion that’s…a million and a half jobs. And they’re not ones, like some countries where they want terms…they want terms and conditions, they want to say ‘Can we borrow the money at zero percent for the next 400 years?’…No, Saudia Arabia pays cash.”

Trump’s explanation comes on the heels of some unsettling tweets the President recently sent out in the wake of an attack on a Saudi Arabian oil facility in which he stated that the U.S. was “locked and loaded” and, worryingly, that the US would defer to Saudi Arabia on how to proceed in the matter.

As an article posted on Vox explains, the United States has no treaty with Saudi Arabia and isn’t obligated to come to the Kingdom’s aid, but the Saudis have a long-running relationship with Trump himself.

As Vox notes:

“But the Saudi royal family does seem to have a special relationship with Trump, who has repeatedly bucked bipartisan congressional majorities to back the Kingdom on topics ranging from its disastrous war in Yemen to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.”

The seamless intermingling of Trump’s own personal interests with those of the country, and all the self-enriching that is clearly going on from Mar-a-Lago to Turnberry, is, of course, a matter of great concern.

Even more worrying, however, is the notion that Trump could get the U.S. embroiled in a war just to help out his cronies and financiers.

Anyway, somebody call J.G. Wentworth because Trump NEEDS CASH NOW.
