It seems that our dear leader, the jackass Trump, is renting out the American Army to Saudi Arabia. This is no secret and Trump is actually proud of this one. It also seems that its OK with just about everybody because there has been nary any thoughts on it by anybody.

Then there is the mideast oil thing. I think he is protecting it so he can either steal it or is already doing so.

He has proudly stated that all the good things the United States does is for sale and will be billed to parties. He currently also wants to charge Iraq for our efforts in Iraq to help Iraq.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anybody gives a damn about this one. So far its been ignored by the Media, the Democrats, the Candidates - EVERYBODY!

That's just Trump being Trump! If we are going to make it all about money, we need to pay our soldiers a hell of a lot more. How much do those "consultants" in Afghanistan get?

Trump says he is "making a lot of money" renting out our army. The fact is the Trump is working, very hard on the deficit. I suspect this is another way to do that, ie. renting the United States Army to a foreign government, cutting medicare, medicaid, etc. Gotta cover the multi-trillion dollar givaway to the 1%!

And if you can do that on the backs of the poor, so much the better!

Trump to Saudi Arabia: “You can have American troops, but ya gotta pay me for them!”

Not at all surprisingly, Donald confuses the job of Commander-in-Chief with Madame-at-Whorehouse. coffee
