Trump/Saudi Arabia 2020

(ANTIMEDIA) Whether or not ongoing Russiagate conspiracy theories have any truth to them, the more pertinent reality is that Saudi Arabia vehemently supported Hillary Clinton’s bid to become president of the United States in 2016, and that same country is now well on its way to supporting Donald Trump’s re-election bid for 2020.

From Alternet’s Max Blumenthal:

“Ahead of the White House meeting [earlier this March], the Saudis hired a D.C.-based consulting group, Booz Allen Hamilton, to compose a special presentation for the president. Prince Salman walked Trump through the Powerpoint slideshow the firm prepared, outlining a plan to invest at least $200 billion in American infrastructure and open up new business opportunities for U.S. companies inside the kingdom. In exchange, Trump was asked to ink the largest weapons deal in history, forking over the advanced missile defense systems and heavy weapons the Obama had administration had refused to sell. The weapons would then be used to pulverize Yemen.

Blumenthal continues:

“Trump reportedly accepted Salman’s pitch, but only on the condition that Saudis plow their infrastructure investments into the Rust Belt swing states — Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin — that held the key to his 2020 presidential victory. So far, Trump’s foes in the Democratic Party and the organized liberal “resistance” have shrugged at the reports of his collusion with a foreign theocracy to secure re-election, obsessing instead over nebulous claims of his illicit ties to Russia. [emphasis added]

Unsurprisingly, Trump is holding up his end of the bargain and is set to announce a massive arms deal package to Saudi Arabia, worth $350 billion. Because these types of arrangements were widely seen as deal-breakers in supporting Hillary Clinton in the first place, it is unclear how Trump’s nationalist support base will feel about him being so cozy with one of the most radical Islamic countries on the planet.

Make no mistake, this overwhelming support for Saudi Arabia is just the beginning. According to the Washington Post:

“Mr. Trump is expected to announce enhanced U.S. support for the kingdom and its Gulf allies, including help with the formation of a defense alliance that U.S. officials say could evolve into an ‘Arab NATO.’”

Yet the media deems all of this to be a non-issue and instead is madly obsessed with incessant claims of almost non-existent collusion with the Russian government.

Saudi Arabia directly sponsors the terror group ISIS while Russia has been one of the only governments most heavily involved in its demise. Saudi Arabia is launching a war of aggression in neighboring Yemen — the poorest country in the Arab world — committing genocide and blatant war crimes in the process (while conveniently avoiding al-Qaeda and ISIS).

Further, recent allegations have emerged that Saudi Arabia is at war with its own civilian population, too.

Watch out though; Trump gave Russia some information on a suspected ISIS terror plot.

How scandalous.
