Trump Regime Resists Limiting Saudi Arms Sales

By James Hohmann With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve

October 11, 2018 "Information Clearing House" -   After headlining a campaign rally in Pennsylvania last night, President Trump phoned in live to Fox News during the 11 p.m. hour to discuss his response to Hurricane Michael. Then host Shannon Bream asked what he’ll do if he becomes convinced Saudi Arabia is responsible for the death or disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

“Well, it's a terrible thing and it certainly would not be a positive,” the president said. “I would not be happy at all. I guess you would have to say, so far, it's looking a little bit like that. We’re going to have to see.”

Trump suggested that he would oppose any push from Capitol Hill to restrict future arms sales to the longtime U.S. ally on the grounds it could cost Americans their jobs. “Well, I think that would be hurting us,” he told Fox. “We have jobs. We have a lot of things happening in this country. … Part of that is what we are doing with our defense systems and everybody is wanting them and, frankly, I think that would be a very, very tough pill to swallow for our country. … And, you know, they are always quick to jump that way.”
