How the United States Is Turning Saudi Arabia Into a Military Juggernaut

On the eve of President Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, Washington has completed negotiating a massive $109.7 billion arms deal with Riyadh. Trump is expected to formally sign the deal at a ceremony this Saturday during his visit to the Kingdom.

According to White House sources, the United States and the Saudis signed letters of offer and acceptance for eight foreign military sales deals worth a total of $12.5 billion earlier today. Those agreements will be implemented as soon the Department of Defense puts contracts in place with industry—and funds are received from Saudi Arabia.
