“Elect me and you’ll find out who really did 9/11,” Trump promised on the campaign trail. He then broadly hinted that the Saudis were the real culprits.
Today, Trump is trying to hand the Saudis a nuclear weapons program.
Why is Trump OK with allowing the world’s two most recklessly irresponsible regimes—Likud Israel and Bin Salman’s House of Saud—to possess or develop nuclear weapons? Shouldn’t the US goal be a nuclear-free Middle East?
Is the Trump-Kushner tilt toward the Saudi-Likud axis of evil mainly about business interests? Are we letting small-time gangsters dictate policy…even if it risks World War III? Is that any way to run an Empire?
