While speaking with supporters at a campaign event in Bluffton, South Carolina in 2016, then-Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said if he is elected “you will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center.”

“It wasn’t the Iraqis,” Trump said.

“You may find it’s the Saudis.”

Trump was referencing the fact 15 out of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. He also, somehow, had knowledge of what was in the 28 pages that would be declassified a few months later in July.

Trump went on to say the government has “papers…that are very secret” which may implicate the Saudis, perhaps referencing the report discussed above.

“You will find out,” Trump said.

Before he was elected, Americans did find out that the 28 pages proved the United States government knew the Saudi Arabian government had a hand in and supported the terrorists who carried out the attacks on 9/11 — and covered it up.

Advertisment

Before the campaign event in South Carolina, Trump accused Saudi Arabia of being behind the 9/11 attacks. “Who blew up the World Trade Center?” Trump asked his pals at Fox and Friends on the morning of February 17, 2016. “It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi — take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents.”

Speaking to the New York Times last year, as the Intercept notes, Trump claimed that, without U.S. support and protection, “Saudi Arabia wouldn’t exist for very long.” The real problem, he continued, was that the Saudis are “a money machine …and yet they don’t reimburse us the way we should be reimbursed.” Asked if he would be willing to “stop buying oil from the Saudis” if they refused to pull their weight, Trump responded: “Oh yeah, sure. I would do that.”

Last year, it seems, Trump was a staunch adversary to the terrorist Saudi regime. But, like any politician worth their hypocritical salt, Trump was — predictably — lying.

Fast forward to post-election win Trump and his view on Saudi Arabia has changed — drastically.

After going from implicating them in the worst terror attack ever to take place on US soil, Donald Trump is now best buds with the terrorist regime in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is responsible for the death of 2,369 Americans — yet Trump is dining with them this very weekend.

Trump’s arrival in Saudi Arabia on Saturday was quite the spectacle, with the Saudi king throwing the president’s family arrival at the Royal Diwan a “welcome fit for a king.”

During his treasonous visit with the terrorist regime, Trump also secured a massive arms deal.

According to a statement just issued by the White House, Trump “has just completed largest single arms deal in US history, negotiating a package totaling more than $109.7 billion” which will boost Saudi Arabia’s defense capabilities, bolstering equipment and services in the face of extreme terrorist groups and Iran. The White House added that the deal will create defense jobs while also reaffirming America’s commitment to Saudi Arabia. 

“This package of defense equipment and services support the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of Iranian threats, while also bolstering the Kingdom’s ability to contribute to counter terrorism operations across the region,” the White House said in a statement on Saturday, as quoted by CNBC News.

This package demonstrates, in the clearest terms possible, the United States’ commitment to our partnership with Saudi Arabia and our Gulf partners, while also expanding opportunities for American companies in the region,” the statement reads, according to Reuters.

Tis quite amazing what being president of the United States can do to a person’s integrity. But those of us who’ve been paying attention saw this coming a mile away.

His loyalty to the Saudi regime first became evident during his travel ban earlier this year.

Out of the 43 people who carried out terrorist attacks on US soil, only three of them came from the seven countries on Trump’s list — the other 40 terrorists came from countries who were not banned.

This handful of attacks on American soil hardly justifies restricting the travel from these countries once we look at the countries Trump did not ban — which are responsible for 93% of all terrorism in the United States causing death on a massive scale, including Saudi Arabia.

The majority of the 40 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia, while the others were from Pakistan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Lebanon and Guinea.

As the Free Thought Project previously reported, during his campaign Trump registered eight companies tied to hotel interests in Saudi Arabia alone. And, in 2001, the alleged Saudi-hating Trump sold an entire floor of Trump Tower to the Saudis for $4.5 million.

When taking a closer look at Trump’s ties to Saudi Arabia, the rhetoric he used during the campaign, decrying the Saudis for their terrorist ways, was little more than lip service.

Indeed, according to Mehdi Hasan, writing for the Intercept, it was a load of bull.

On Sunday, the fawning Saudis will offer a platform to the world’s most famous Islamophobe, to give a speech on Islam in “the birthplace” of Islam. And Trump will likely take the opportunity to decry “radical Islamic terrorism” while visiting a country that has perhaps done more than any other to incite, fund, and fuel it.

Hypocrisy unites them both. So too does their fear and loathing of the Iranians — the Saudis are busying dropping bombs and backing militants to push back Iranian influence in Yemen and Syria. The Trump administration, filled with Iran hawks, is on the verge of inking a series of arms deals with Riyadh worth more than $100 billion.

To be clear: Trump’s U-turn on Saudi Arabia has little to do with being moderated by the realities of high office or swayed by the Beltway’s foreign policy elites. Despite his bombastic campaign rhetoric, he never planned to go after the Saudis in office — even after publicly accusing them of murdering 3,000 Americans. Early on in the campaign, in 2015, a senior Arab diplomat told me, on condition of anonymity, that Trump had informed most of the Gulf governments, in private, that his anti-Muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric was “all for the campaign” and that it would be business as usual once he was elected (or, for that matter, defeated).

Just like Obama, Trump is curtsying to the terrorist Saudi Arabian regime and selling them weapons which are in turn used to kill innocent women and children. Just like Obama, Trump is continuing war, and in fact, doubling down. In march, Trump dropped more bombs in Yemen than Obama did in all of 2016. 

This month, he again attacked the sovereign nation of Syria with a massive airstrike against the Syrian Army — who happen to be fighting ISIS. Put two and two together and we see who wins when the US bombs the Syrian government — and it’s most assuredly not ‘democracy and freedom.’

Trump is on track to become far more deadly than Obama and he’s less than half a year into his presidency.

While the media uses fairy tales of Russian election hacking to distract, Trump is proving to be just like all of his predecessors — fooling people into thinking he’s ‘MAGA’ while bowing down to the military industrial complex.

    It is useless to talk about sane “Policies” while we submit to an insane Government….

    • premaom

        Trump was installed by the same globalists that picked his predecessors

  • O’Really

    Why does the oil kingdom need help from the US? I guess the central bankers have him under control now. But to be fair, he’s not bowing or curtsying in the video. He’s squatting so the short guy can put the necklace on.

    • Ann

      Because they’re pussies and need our military.

      • junktex

        Who have we defeated recently?

        • Ann

          It’s just for protection. An ex navy officer told me about it yesterdays. We have carriers and troops in their countries to protect them since their own armies are pussies.

          • junktex

            Respecfully,I just don’t believe that.DC and Israel want the Saudis to attack Iran.I’d bet the moon that soon the Saudis will have nukes.

          • Ann

            I believe that as well.

    Remember when Trump had an orange face … In numerology orange is the only color that is 33. 33 happens to be a scared number in Freemasonry. It was a signal to all the other Freemasons letting them know that no matter what promises Trump made to the American people they can be sure that Trump is a Freemason first and foremost. Trump has now been installed to do what ever they want him to do.

    I was really hoping Trump was something completely different then the usual criminal politician. But then during the 2017 Presidential Inauguration I noticed DJT seated onstage slightly leaning forward with his forearms on his lap. In this position I clearly observed he had his thumbs and first few fingers pressed together making a inverted triangle/pyramid. Next, whenever Trump is speaking he is usually giving the Okay/666 hand gesture. Both of these kinds of hand signals are Illuminati symbols of communication.
    Never forget Comedian George Carlin saying “it is a Big (Illuminati) Club and you ain’t in it”.

    Meet the “New Boss” … Same as the “Old Boss” … Won’t get fooled again .. DERP!!

      Glad you noticed those things too!

  • Ann

    YOu’re such a loser. He’s not bowing. He’s lowering his head. He’s getting them to pay their security bills and spend money here. Maybe they’re talking about 911, but you go ahead and judge from their party photos you moron.

    • Damiana

      “He’s not bowing. He’s lowering his head.”

      Lowering one’s head in deference is the very DEFINITION of bowing. Also, who the fuck are you talking to? Unlike yourself, Mr. Agorist is a very busy, important man who doesn’t have time to troll around in the comments looking for conflict – trust me, he has no idea your stupid little post even exists.

      So, who’s the moron here – the one who publishes a news site read and admired by THOUSANDS of people, or the one in the comments screaming “he’s not [verb] – he’s [exact definition of said verb]”?

      Now, shut the fuck up before something bad happens.

      • Ann

        He lowered his head to accept the stupid necklace you idiot.

        • Damiana

          Call me an idiot (or anything else) one more time – I dare ya!

            Super idiot.

          • Damiana

            You got the “super” part right, at least!

      • premaom

        This is very nasty. In these times if we add to the violence and the hypocrisy and name calling we are part of destroying our very own country. Try using your heart to do some real thinking and stop name calling…and stop cursing…..it lowers our level of functioning…..

        • Damiana

          That’s not what the studies show. People who cuss tend to be smarter AND more honest: http://thefreethoughtproject.com/swear-honesty-study/

          I treat people the way they behave. This “Ann” person has done nothing but call names and make dumb comments about the definition of “bowing,” so I owe the bitch ZERO courtesy. She’s insulting and disrespecting a friend of mine on his own damn website.

          Finally, I do not think with my heart – I use my brain for that. The heart is for feelings. Try not to confuse the difference!

          • premaom

            oh well and it is people such as you who don’t believe in the trans-formative powers of love and not hate. I treat everyone with love and respect no matter their behavior. That does not mean the behavior is always correct but treating someone else with negativity only brings out more negativity in yourself…So be it…You want and enjoy being negative that certainly is your right. So is vengeance which shows up clearly in your comments. Do you even know what impeachment means since you use your head so much without your heart.. Anyone can be impeached. It is partisan and political. Ah, but conviction. That is entirely another story and all of this will cost tons of money and what for? Wouldn’t you just rather feed our poor. The end………God Bless you….

          • Damiana

            *salaams* Many blessings upon you as well!

          • premaom

            PS….the free thought project is full of it……most science and studies are not even objective and one must look at who paid for it…..if you want to curse so be it….but it is just an excuse to hate and say to yourself that hating is fine….it does not make you smarter…Equilibrium of mind makes one smarter…..We have perceptual mechanisms that filter all information…..if hate and vengeance and self righteousness is part of your personal perceptual mechanism then your opinions can never be objective and that is TRUTH from God. Try reading about love ….. try reading about what will heal us all of us…..it certainly is not cursing or hating….God Bless YOU.

      • Ann

        He’s a foot taller than the midget Saudi you idiot. He bent down to put the homo necklace on.

    • junktex

      I’m waiting for him to kiss one of those sissy princes like Bush did.lol

  • Robert Turner

    Trump is not bowing down to the man. Trump only leaned over so shorty could get the necklace around his neck.

    • lawmanjed

      Did you not read the article? Point went right over you head. Go ahead and “lean over shortly” for your masters.

  • Mother Earth

    Saudi Arabia needs all the help they can buy to terrorise the innocent people of Yemen .

  • Ed Taylor

    You are incorrect. Watch the video of both. Obuma didn’t bend his knees only bowed forward (and they were only greeting him at the time). Trump stooped by bending his knees (to receive a medal)… not a bow.

    Trump isn’t “bowing” at all. He’s accepting a Medal of Honor… they are showing HIM respect. In essence the reverse of Obuma.

    Trump simply bent his knees and leaned forward like 5 inches so the short guy could put the medal around his neck. Trump is 6’3″, the other guy is 5’8″.

    Think McFly….

    What awful, childish, petulant writing! Please – somebody take this guys crayons away!

  • Nevajac Frye

    Anyone with two brain cells to rub together realizes that any POTUS must meet with, and communicate with, other foreign powers. He cannot just meet with allies. It is even more important to know what the ‘bad guys’ are thinking. It is called diplomatic relations and is a necessary evil. A psychological tactic of communicating in politics is, when speaking to someone you are opposed to, present the appearance of ‘being on the same page’, and that they are not the ‘bad guys’, and, OF COURSE they want the right thing, as any decent person would. Lull them in to a false sense of security, and an appearance of all being on the same page. Any idiot could figure this out.

  • premaom

    I am sorry Mr. Agorist. While I honor your serving our country this article is so biased and ignorant it is not funny. What goes on in a campaign changes for every president once they are in office and see how to handle situations….I do not think Trump is going to be anti anything that will help this fallen apart country that the Democrats have created…..and i am a or used to be a Democrat…..Trump is not bowing down to anyone and probably never will. He accepted a metal, game playing perhaps as the Saudis are not really friends but he knows it….the enemy of my enemy is my friend but think about it this is not real or stable…Trump needed to bend down so that the metal could be put on….what a very NONOBJECTIVE article….Sorry Mr. Agorist and this stupid supposedly free thought project email…..you are so biased and so must be this freethoughtproject…nice to give false advertising…..Obama betrayed this country and left us wide open for all kinds of attack and Trump is trying to remedy this and if being “friends:” with countries who are not our friends but who will help defeat ISIS is not an hypocrisy……it is good game planning…….Obama was a checkers player and we need a chess player….Clinton got us into the mess with North Korea…..this article again is just a sham and shameful…..

  • Johan Karlsson

    You are SO WRONG with the slanted angle of misconception of this article! This is PART of Trump’s plan to BLOW away the sucking slimy Deep State! He’s working on plans AFTER the economy has crashed! He’s making allies for the Silk road which will be urgently needed as the US is not producing anything anymore. The entire country is starving to death if no imports are possible. Eating homegrown Monsanto poison will take out the population – but that is part of the Globalist idiots plans. This article is probably sponsored by George Soros! Let’s get rid of all these sucking assholes who are ruining the lives for 99% of the planets population! The corruption has got to come to an end for the sake of Mankind!
