Trump Faces Harsh Criticism from His Own Base for Meeting With Saudis

lrtru

President Trump was criticized today.

Normally that statement would induce a yawn.

But this time it was not criticism pertaining to “ties to Russia,” or “fascism,” or whatever the authoritarian left and is harping on these days.

No, this time the criticism came from Trump’s own base.

It’s because he appears to be going soft on Saudi royalty, a regime known for its material support of ISIS and the Clinton Foundation, human trafficking, and brutal oppression of all those who oppose it.

Many believe that the Saudis were favorite donors of the Clinton Foundation since the donations were sometimes made in the form of people — i.e., trafficking.





And of course, it was George Soros’s Open Society Foundation that supported Saudi Arabia’s attempt to construct a natural gas line into Europe.

Here’s the video where Trump said it was an “honor” to host them:

A meeting and a short video clip might just be theatrics — some surmise Trump has leverage over the Saudis and is keeping enemies close.

As American oil companies get most of their crude from Saudi Arabia, it could be that Trump is buying time until America becomes less dependent on them in this regard.

Despite such possibilities, the fact that the meeting even took place left many people with a bad taste.





Trump supporters took to Facebook by the thousands to let him know they don’t approve. Here’s a sampling of the highest rated comments:

What this illustrates is that Trump’s supporters are committed, but they are not blind.

If Trump is really against regimes that support ISIS, then perhaps he’ll be happy to see that his base is criticizing the meeting with Saudis, for he would know that his real plans will unfold in time and will be supported.

If Trump were to go all Clinton on everybody and start kissing up to the Saudis, that’s when we could see substantive resistance in America. Perhaps something more effective than a mob dressing as vaginas and parroting CNN.





Interestingly, additional footage shows that Trump was anything but friendly with his Saudi interlocutor. When they were seated for a photo op, the interaction seemed cold and Trump appeared to be more stern than usual, almost as if he couldn’t wait for the meeting to be over.

What do you think of President Trump’s meeting with the Saudis? Is he betraying everybody, or is he keeping enemies close? Or is it just an instance of political formality and theater of no significance?
