Saudi Deals

Anyone, me for instance, who saw those television captions blaring 300 billion dollars in deals made in the kingdom of Saud might have thought that those deals were the result of President Trump’s first trip abroad to make America “great again”. When I woke up this morning those deals sent to oblivion by captions informing of the FBI’s investigating his son-in-law, I recalled my initial surprise at the many big corporate names like too-big-to-fail banker Dimond who had accompanied him. I recalled that those corporate leaders were keeping their corporations great  by  maintaining the House of Saud’s means of  mining, marketing and protecting its resources,  and that the President of the United States of America was simply their sales rep.
