Trump claims he has ‘no financial interests in Saudi Arabia’ — but he makes lots of money from it

FYI: Trump claims he has ‘no financial interests in Saudi Arabia’ — but he makes lots of money from it

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that “I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia” — but in fact he has boasted in the past that “I make a lot of money with them.”

Trump has sold apartments and a yacht for millions of dollars to Saudis, and recent decreases in bookings in his New York and Chicago properties since he has been president have been offset, to some extent, by business from Saudi customers.

Trump’s tweet denying a financial stake in Saudi Arabia comes amid a growing furor over suspicions that the country’s rulers ordered the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
