    And Trump owns what he does........... or doesn't do. I imagine Trump had an opportunity to stop this deal, and obviously didn't.

    That is actually quite curious. Must be more to the story...

    $12 billion IS a lot of money.

    I remember how disappointed we were when Barry managed to screw up a big arms deal with the Saudis that would have been very lucrative for us.

    Pretty sure it would have to be Congress that does that, since they're the ones who authorized it.

    Sure, but isn't Trump supposed to lead in these instances?

    He'd make his recommendation, but last I looked we still had separation of powers and three branches of government in this country. Barry only thought he was a King; he wasn't really.

    I'm not sure about that.

    Obama placed a hold on arms headed to Saudi Arabia last year.

    So that means Barry owns the stock market breaking 20000 and the other things trump and trumpers have been claiming credit for

    And trump gets credit for not stopping a deal to deliver arms to a state he just called a sponsor of terrorism
