Saudi Prince says Trump is a true friend to Muslims

“This measure is a sovereign decision aimed at preventing terrorists from entering"

Fentoni

The KSA and the UAE were number 1 & 2 in the top 10 weapons purchasers between 2011 - 2015 with Iraq & Egypt taking 9th and 10th respectively. Simple economics dictates that the massive planned increase by Trump on military spending in the US relies on foreign sales to offset the development costs. You certainly don't sell your enemies weapons (and visa versa) so by this measure who could possibly be a truer friend?

This is conflicting. If he is a good friend of Muslims, the right wing ideology he represents would not be happy about it.

Interesting. I'm sure the right will rejoice to hear Trump described as "a true friend of Muslims who will serve the Muslim World."

Of course, the ban is still an absurd idea based on nonsense fear-mongering that likely only makes the terrorist situation worse, not better. But at least Trump pleased the Saudis...
