Pentagon addresses Trump claim that he's gotten $1 billion from Saudis to pay for US troops

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.

2. Maybe they deposited it into his account and not the government's account.

5. More likely, being that his son in law was in SA last year for some nebulous reason...

Probably to bride the SA into paying that $billion dollars into some secret rump account?

6. Maybe the Saudis have taken lesson from Trump on how to stiff debts.

If so, well, all of us know who pays the bill.

7. The Pentagon wouldn't know anything ...

... about the $1B. It would not likely have been paid to the US Govt. We need to check Rudy G’a accounts. Or Jr’s. Or Erik Prince’s. Or the trump Foundation’s.
