Readers of my articles know that I voted for and continue to support our president. I appreciate his public support of Israel and of PM Netanyahu.
I also appreciate what President Trump has done with our economy and putting so many people back to work.
That said, I will not ever support his relationship with Saudi Arabia.
From the time Trump visited that country and was wined, dined and dazzled by the Saudis, I have not changed what I know to be truth about the “Taqiyya” nation. They are masters of deception.
A recent statement regarding Saudi Arabia from President Trump:

Statement from President Donald J. Trump on Standing with Saudi Arabia
The world is a very dangerous place!
The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Iranians have killed many Americans and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. Iran states openly, and with great force, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” Iran is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.”
President Trump, with all due respect, I think that you need to understand the difference between Iran and Saudi Arabia. While Iran is blatant about their hatred of Israel and America (Big Satan and the little Satan) Saudi Arabia keeps their cards close to the chest; giving billions of dollars to America, and telling the press that they want to help end Islamist terrorism. Mr. President, while they say words which the world likes to hear, they continue to fund terrorism all over this world. They are building mosques in Europe to accommodate the migrant Muslims; while also making sure that the mosques have radical imams in place.
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia would gladly withdraw from Yemen if the Iranians would agree to leave. They would immediately provide desperately needed humanitarian assistance. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has agreed to spend billions of dollars in leading the fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism.
Don’t listen to what they “say” – watch what they “do.”
After my heavily negotiated trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Kingdom agreed to spend and invest $450 billion in the United States. This is a record amount of money. It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, tremendous economic development, and much additional wealth for the United States. Of the $450 billion, $110 billion will be spent on the purchase of military equipment from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and many other great U.S. defense contractors. If we foolishly cancel these contracts, Russia and China would be the enormous beneficiaries – and very happy to acquire all of this newfound business. It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!
A Trojan horse if I’ve ever seen one!
The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body.
Oh, but now it has come out that the Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman was the Saudi who called for this brutal murder and dismemberment of Khashoggi. Is this not alarming to us? It should be. But money talks, does it not?
Representatives of Saudi Arabia say that Jamal Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but my decision is in no way based on that – this is an unacceptable and horrible crime. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!
“Maybe he did – maybe he didn’t?” That seems like a way to sweep this brutal crime under the carpet. I fear, President Trump, that you will one day see that the Saudi government is EVIL, and I hope that you will understand this truth before these people bring harm to America.
That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region. It is our paramount goal to fully eliminate the threat of terrorism throughout the world!
Again, to miss the true intent and the funding of terrorism worldwide by Saudi Arabia is a huge mistake.
I understand there are members of Congress who, for political or other reasons, would like to go in a different direction – and they are free to do so. I will consider whatever ideas are presented to me, but only if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America. After the United States, Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producing nation in the world. They have worked closely with us and have been very responsive to my requests to keeping oil prices at reasonable levels – so important for the world. As President of the United States I intend to ensure that, in a very dangerous world, America is pursuing its national interests and vigorously contesting countries that wish to do us harm. Very simply it is called America First!
Again, it all comes down to money and oil.
Brethren, I am not disparaging our president. I simply believe that he does not recognize nor understand the deception and “Taqiyya” (permissible lying to further the cause of Islam) of the Saudi Arabian government.
No doubt, many readers will send this Scripture to me:
“Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?” (Ezediel 38:13).
This Scripture is typical of the Saudis. They conceal themselves from the “action” while funding this same action against Israel without being detected.
Again, I am not speaking against our president. I am simply saying that President Trump is lookin square into the eyes of a viper snake when he deals with the Saudis.
I pray for Trump and his advisors, that they will be shown by the Lord that they are treading on very dangerous turf.
Pray for our president and his administration!
