Trump boast about $1B from Saudis (for troop presence) - Pentagon says they still owe for fuel



Glenn Kessler ✔ @GlennKesslerWP

Trump claimed that he's gotten $1 billion in the bank from the Saudis to pay for US troops. But the Pentagon just confirmed to me the Saudis still have not paid their outstanding bill for refueling costs in the Yemen war. So let's label Trump's statement as highly doubtful.

Is it in his or Jared's accounts?

2. WRONG! You are looking in the wrong place....

It wasn't paid to the us treasury, it was paid to the us trumpery. A different bank account entirely.

Look, trump doesn't give a squat about the us treasury. He cares about what he gets personally. This isn't difficult to understand. The payment was to him, not us.

Look elsewhere.

3. Good luck with that.

I know well how it goes when trying to collect from a Saudi Owned Business or for that fact,any Mid Eastern Kingdom owned Business.

4. Trump didn't specify which bank

Or whose account that billion dollars was deposited in.

Come on, Glenn. You've got to be smarter than this by now.
