Trump Says Saudi Arabia Will Pay Us to Go to War in Their Defense

Trump Says Saudi Arabia Will Pay Us to Go to War in Their Defense September 18, 2019

Trump has long acted as if American military might and alliances are not only for sale, but that countries should be required to pay us to protect them. Now in the wake of the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil production facilities, he says that if we take military action against those we believe attacked them — that would be Iran — they will have to pay us to do it.

Everything is transactional for Trump. Everything is done to make money. There may be many reasons why we should protect the Saudi oil supply (though I find none of them persuasive), but the fact that they’ll pay us to do it is absolutely the wrong reason.
