Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally bribed Donald Trump with $1bn during the US president’s visit to Riyadh in May, an anonymous Saudi commentator, who uses the Twitter handle Mujtahidd, has claimed.

Bin Salman, then-deputy crown prince, was able to win the US administration's favour in his power struggle with his cousin Mohammed bin Nayef, who was heir to the throne until he was deposed in June.

Middle East Eye has not been able to verify Mujtahidd's allegations at the time of publication. Mutjahidd has almost two million followers on Twitter and claims to have reliable sources close to the royal palace.

Mujtahidd claimed on Monday that Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia changed Washington’s stance on the competition between bin Salman and bin Nayef, forcing the US to take the 32-year-old’s side.

2. If true, it might explain how MBS's people were able to ambush Khashoggi.

6. I saw in my Twitter feed.

tRump stated in Faux softball interview


“We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia—I said, listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us. They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1B in the bank.”

He’s selling our troops
Basta!!

4. Trump is a Gun for Hire

Now he is using the US Military as a private killing machine for the highest bidder be it the Saudis or whoever wants to eliminate someone. Remember there was a SECOND attempt on someone that did not work and that person had nothing to do with the US but was a target of MBS. I believe he was in on the Kashoggi murder also. A fucking billion dollars for Solemini's head. Erik Prince deep in the shit as getting Dumb Donnie to act on Murder, Inc so he can pad his bank account. Where is the Billion stashed? Follow the $$ Trail. Is this the reason he is turning the world upside down to hide his taxes? I believe the money is in some crooked bank doing lots of money laundering.

A Billion $$ in a mysterious boat in Jedda while the Dumb Donnie was in Saudia Arabia. Right after that Dumb Donnie praised MBS for cleaning house and putting all his rivals in jail.

If this is all true and I have no reason to doubt it the house will come tumbling down with all the rotten corrupt actors in this American Tragedy.

12. Let's use the ever popular "some people say" source, and get it out there.

If it turns out to be true (I would bet that it is), great.

If it doesn't, until they prove it, it will still be considered true. Win/Win

17. The real problem is that this is entirely believable...

It is easy as hell to believe that our current President is for sale, easily bribed, willing to sell us all out for cold hard cash.
