"Fake news! The CIA are lying Deep State Democrats! And I have no business relationships in Saudi Arabia!" - Guess who

From the cited article...

...Trump's attempt to distance himself from profiting from Saudi Arabia is undercut by a long record showing deals his companies made with that country's government and citizens.

"Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million," Trump said during a presidential campaign rally in Alabama in August 2015.

"Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much."

At another rally that year, Trump said of the Saudis, "I make a lot of money from them."

"They buy all sorts of my stuff. All kinds of toys from Trump. They pay me millions and hundred of millions."...


Once again it appears that Pres Trump's personal financial dealings, and the resulting profit, taint the decision-making process of the Office of the President.

Meanwhile this piece of crap is at the G-20 Summit in Argentina and the Argentines are at least doing an investigation of this. They probably won't have access to him long enough to arrest him but at least they are trying to do something unlike the United States.

Trump's subservience to Mohammed bin Salman and Putin makes no sense for the President of the United States and perfect sense for a businessman seeking loans.
