Trump vetoes 3 bills prohibiting arms sales to Saudi Arabia

President Trump on Wednesday vetoed three congressional resolutions aimed at blocking his administration from bypassing Congress and selling weapons to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Called each resolution ’ill-conceived’, Trump said they would affect bilateral relations and hamper the ability of the US ’to sustain and shape critical security cooperation activities’.

Well ofcourse! Amazing how this crime can continue. Americans should be protesting on the streets. The Saudi's are a bunch of terrorists. But then again. The US government has it's fair share of criminals and terrorists. Let's name a few: Obama, Clinton, Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Kissinger and Trump is doing his utter best to join this band of A'holes.

why are we giving firearms to them anyway? This is a good reason to be against foreign intervention.

See, I’m morbid as fuck. My attitude isn’t to spend American lives keeping the peace over there so we can buy oil, but giving them all guns so they can spend their own lives keeping the peace in exchange for oil (and money). We just go out of our way to up arm the side that likes us best. If we didn’t need oil (where the fuck are these alternatives fuels for fucks sake?!) we could just give them ALL the finger and laugh as their economies implode and they go from culturally shitty, to full on shitty!

Sap these savages of oil for a day and their countries would be able to discover fire on their own.

This alone is all the proof one needs that Trump is the same brand of lying gangster establishment elitist trash as Obama was before him. It's okay if you voted for Trump, but at least have the guts to admit you were duped by this conman instead of doing mental gymnastics to convince yourself that he is for the people.
