LEFTISTS SHAKING: Saudi Government’s MAJOR Public Announcement
President Trump doesn’t waste taxpayer money.
So, his trips are not boondoggles–ways to see the world at taxpayer expense.
Such is one of the differences between successful billionaire businessmen and failed community organizers.
With President Trump’s first international trip abroad, he sees opportunity. First, we re-establish that America is the greatest country in the world. Second, the president negotiates.
Rex Tillerson met with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir in a joint press conference in Riyadh. The outcome was a huge announcement.
Despite all the comments made about candidate-Trump, the Saudi know things are different with now President Trump.
Interestingly, Adel Al-Jubeir was extraordinarily complimentary of the new Trump administration.
Then, he expressed a hopeful sentiment of working with the Trump administration after eight years of working with President Obama.
The meetings resulted in a $110 billion purchase of American arms by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States,” Trump said. “Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said.
The agreement commits Saudi Arabia to buying military equipment from the U.S. But what it also commits Saudi Arabia to hire American companies to build such equipment in Saudi Arabia, according to Gary Cohn, the president’s chief economic adviser. More Americans working in Muslim countries means more interactions and chances for exporting Americanism.
According to the State Department, the deal includes tanks and helicopters for border security, ships for coastal security, intelligence-gathering aircraft, a missile-defense radar system and cyber-security tools.
For those wondering what Obama accomplished, The Guardian reported,
Since 2010, the Obama administration authorized a record $60bn in US military sales to Saudi Arabia. Since then, the administration concluded deals for nearly $48bn in weapons sales – triple the $16bn in sales under the George W Bush administration.
In President Trump’s record-breaking deal with the Saudis, the Saudi Foreign Minister said something interesting.
In his opening statement he used Trump terminology:
“We will have truly drowned [out] the voices of extremism and we will have drained the swamps in which extremism and terrorism emanates.”
He further expressed joy that Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Holy Sea were the President’s first stops on his foreign trip. Al-Jubeir noted the symbolism of respecting the three major faiths.
This arms deal solidifies a long-standing relationship with the Saudi Arabia, a country that remains the largest energy producer in the world. The long-term impact of this deal spans over a decade and will total $350 billion. The White House released the following statement about the deal,
“This package of defense equipment and services support the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of Iranian threats, while also bolstering the Kingdom’s ability to contribute to counter terrorism operations across the region, reducing the burden on the U.S. military to conduct those operations.”
The President said,
“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.”
We were told Muslims hate Trump
What’s funny is how the media has reacted to how the Middle East greets President Trump and others in his administration.
Imagine what we can expect in visits to other countries. As President Trump’s advance team prep for negotiations, America will get nothing but great news.
