Trump meets Saudi Crown Prince MBS, sells weapons

Trump meets Saudi Crown Prince MBS, sells weapons

Trump says the USA has "zero tolerance" for funding of terrorism. The prince will also travel to Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Houston, where he will meet the leadership at different technology companies, including Google and Apple.

MBS could dangle a huge carrot in front of Trump for his support.

During three weeks in the USA, the 32-year-old crown prince will also meet with businessmen in NY, tech mavens in San Francisco and entertainment bigwigs in Los Angeles.

Coming mid-way through the Crown Prince's two week tour of the USA, the vote could deliver an "embarrassing rebuke" to the 32-year old heir to the throne as he meets President Donald Trump and other U.S. leaders, says Time.

While it is likely that Prince Mohammed could independently learn who were his critics, he may have wanted to let it be known that Kushner shared that information with him in order to show his close relationship with the United States, the unnamed USA official said. A lot of bad things are happening in Iran. And that was a very incredible two days, and we appreciate the investment in our country.

"Trump in his praises to MBS said, "... now you're beyond the Crown Prince.

Trump sounded an ominous note as he looked ahead to a decision in May about whether to stay in the Iran nuclear deal, loathed by both Trump and the Saudis.

"The Iran deal is coming up soon and you will see what will happen", Trump told reporters.

"Iran has not been treating that part of the world, or the world itself, appropriately", Trump said.

Washington is the first stop of the crown prince's visit to the United States, where he will meet with USA business and industry leaders to cultivate investments.

Also high on the agenda in the White House talks was confronting Iran, a country Trump has repeatedly criticized for its expansionist policies in the Middle East.

For all his taboo-busting changes at home and risky moves in the Middle East, Prince Mohammed is still a mystery to the United States and much of the West.

MBS, in particular, has been closely identified with the three-year-old war in the Arab world's poorest country, which started while he was defense minister.

As the 32-year-old heir to the Saudi throne began his PR offensive, however, Congress was debating reducing military aid to Saudi Arabia because of alleged atrocities in the war in Yemen. Saudi Arabia signed billions of dollars of deals with USA arms manufacturers and energy companies, including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman, General Electric, Exxon Mobil, Halliburton, Honeywell, McDermott International, Jacobs Engineering Group, Rowan Companies, National Oilwell Varco, Nabors Industries, Weatherford International, Schlumberger, and Dow Chemical.

He hailed the military sales as a boost to American jobs.
