Trump says Saudi Arabia is paying US $1 billion to keep troops stationed

President Trump that Saudi Arabia has paid the US $1 billion so that the US would keep soldiers stationed in the country. Trump told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Friday that he said ’You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us.’ Representative Justin Amash, who left the Republican Party, and others have criticized Trump for making US troops into mercenaries.

Saudi Arabia, the country that funded 9/11, is paying the US, (not Trump) to fight a war to protect Saudi oil interests. This makes a liar out of Trump. This is even more insidious than the bullshit Trump tried to spin earlier. So the US military is nothing more than a bunch of mercenaries. If one soldier gets killed, did he die defending the US constitution? Or the Saudi oil cartel? This dishonors the country and and the flag.
