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.
