Top Republicans and Democrats in Congress have called for the $110-billion arms deal Donald Trump signed with Saudi Arabia last week to be reversed. Their primary concern is that the kingdom may use the newest weapons in the Yemen war, they say.

I really don't don't want Saudi to get these arms, either.

Just having a alliance with Saudi Arabia should be illegal and to it's the birthplace of all Islam .

Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, effectively a hereditary a dictatorship governed along Islamic lines .

Way are we even associated with this country ? They hate us !

They don't need the arms or for that mater our tolerance of them .

All told, it's 350 billion over 10 years. 24 billion of it already approved by the Obama administration.  Continuation and expansion of bad foreign policy. But that's okay because Trump says it's okay.
