Rand Paul expresses fierce opposition to Saudi Arabia arms deal ahead of vote in the Senate
Senator Rand Paul(R-KY) asked the Senate to vote todayin opposition to the $110 billion arms deal PresidentDonald Trump made with Saudi Arabiaduring his first overseas trip last month. Asking if the United States should give money or arms to Saudi Arabia at all, Paul reminded his colleagues of Saudi Arabia’s 30 years of jihad philosophy and their hatred of Judeo-Christian tradition.
On “Pure Opelka” today, Mike Opelka remarked that the whole deal sounds likeFast and Furious, the infamous gun-running deal that resulted in the death of U.S. border agents, but only on a much bigger, more troubling scale. We may be fueling an arms race, as other nations around Saudi Arabia will want to arm, leavingour ally Israel in a terrible position.
