President Trump Is Visiting Saudi Arabia to Cement a Friendship

Before he became president, Donald Trump once accused a Saudi prince of wanting to “control U.S. politicians with daddy’s money.” He claimed Saudi Arabia “blew up the World Trade Center” and also claimed that the kingdom “wouldn’t exist” without American assistance.

At the end of this week, Trump will fly to Saudi Arabia in the first overseas trip of his presidency.
