So the Saudis cut a $25 million dollar cheque to the Clinton Foundation, as you know.
I mean, it’s a ruse: governments don’t need to donate to charities. They don’t need tax receipts, which is what a charity would offer a regular donor.
It was a $25 million dollar down-payment on a Hillary Clinton presidency. It was influence-buying. A legal bribe, though I don’t think it would have been legal for anyone other than a Clinton.
Anyways, the Saudis were pretty pleased with themselves. Every poll and every expert said Clinton was going to win. And then she lost.
I’ll show you some comments made by Saudi Arabia’s best known billionaire prince, Prince Al-Waleed Talal.
He hates Trump, because Trump is against terrorists. And Saudi Arabia is a global exporter of terrorism.
But here’s what I’m really glad about:
He doesn’t own Trump, like he owned Clinton.
Al-Waleed would be a beggar riding a camel were it not for sheer luck that his dictatorship sits on an ocean of oil.
Trump’s attitude? He tweeted:
”Dopey Prince @Alwaleed_Talal wants to control our U.S. politicians with daddy’s money. Can’t do it when I get elected. #Trump2016”
"@Michael2014abc: @Alwaleed_Talal @realDonaldTrump Has your country, Saudi Arabia, taken ANY of the Syrian refugees? If not, why not?”
Saudi Arabia has 100,000 air conditioned tents, that could hold more than half a million people. But they haven’t taken a single Syria refugee.
And what’s my point?
Who would you rather have as America’s commander in chief?
Someone like Trump who slaps down any uppity prince with zingers?
Or the oily Clintons, who saw any foreign leader as a source for cash, and preferred to take tens of millions of dollars from foreigners behind closed doors?
