After the 2016 election, Saudis booked 500 nights at Trump's D.C. hotel, duped U.S. veterans
Donald Trump is compromised. It’s been painfully obvious that Vladimir Putin has something on him. Whether that something is secretive talks to build a Trump Tower in Russia, something Trump repeatedly lied about to the American people, or whether it is the much discussed “pee-pee tape” and rumored video of Trump with prostitutes in Moscow, there is something there.
But Putin isn’t the only one pulling Trump’s strings. The Saudi government and people, and their vast wealth, have long been a draw for greedy Donald Trump. At the start of Trump’s grifting presidential campaign, he bragged about how much money the Saudis spent at his properties. From CNBC:
“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[s] of millions.”
