During President Donald Trump’s interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Friday, the president spoke about his positive relationship with Saudi Arabia, including how the country is paying to use American troops.
Conservative Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.), who until recently was a Republican, responded to Trump’s remarks in a tweet, saying, “He sells troops.”.
“Saudi Arabia is paying us for [our troops].
We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia,” Trump said.
“There are people who support the president, who believe things he says, but it’s pretty clear he’s not bringing home the troops.
He added, “He’s moving troops back into Iraq, he’s moving other troops into Saudi Arabia and using our forces almost as mercenaries, paid mercenaries who are going to come in, as long as Saudi Arabia pays us some money, it’s good to go. »
