Leahy: ‘The Saudis Feel that They Have Friends in the Trump Administration’ and ‘They Can Do Whatever They Want’
LEAHY: “We can cut back on the banking, the visas, certainly we have the ability to block arms sales. We should have done that after they lied to us about the civilian casualties in Yemen. I think the Saudis feel that they have friends in the Trump administration and they can do whatever they want, and the United States will give in. Can you imagine how Donald Trump would act if they had had a picture of Barack Obama bowing to them as they put a gold necklace around his neck, or dancing with a sword in his hand for the Saudis? That’s what Donald Trump did. Barack Obama never would have done that."
