    Trump sells Qatar $12 billion in F-15s after accusing them of funding terrorism

    One portion of that deal -- $12 billion for 36 F-15QA fighter jets -- was inked on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., when Qatar's Defense Minister met with U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis.

    "We are pleased to announce today the signing of the letter of offer and acceptance for the purchase of the F-15QA fighter jets, with an initial cost of $12 billion dollars," read the Qatari Defense Minister's statement on Wednesday afternoon. "We believe that this agreement will propel Qatar's ability to provide for its own security while also reducing the burden placed upon the United States military in conducting operations against violent extremism."

    During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology. Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!

    So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. They said they would take a hard line on funding...

    ...extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!

    F-15s? They must've come from a boneyard.

    The full arms sale, of over $20 billion for 72 F-15QA fighter jets, was notified in November 2016. This means it had already been authorized by congress and the executive branch, when President Obama was in office, before the Trump administration came into office.

    Hang on, so now things that happened under obamas term are his? When did that happen?

    And why would our cheeto in chief not put a stop to this deal if Qatar really is a sponsor of terrorism like he said? I thought he was supposed to be undoing the bad obama did
