While the liberal media continues to ignore the thousands of Trump-generated jobs in order to focus on rumors as facts, relatively little attention was paid to the latest boost President Trump has made possible for the vast multitude of under- and unemployed American workers.
As it turns out, the $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia is just the tip of the jobs iceberg.
Initially reported by Tyler Durden of the everything-economics ZeroHedge.com, he cites that when factoring in restocking and any future commitments that come with the territory of transacting the largest arms sale in the history of mankind, the final price tag at the end of the next ten years puts the worth of this sale closer to a quarter of a trillion dollars.
More specifically, a whopping $350 billion dollars of American know-how, American labor, American steel, and American paychecks will enable the Saudis and our mutual Persian Gulf nation allies in both taking the lead against the fight against ISIS as well as being the primary shield against any future expansion, military or otherwise;
Gary Cohn, Trump’s chief economic advisor, said Saudi Arabia is “going to hire US companies” as a result of the defense deal. The goal of the deal is “to invest a lot of money in the U.S. and have a lot of U.S. companies invest and build things over here,” Cohn said, according to a White House press pool report.
The vast funds which will boost the US defense sector will be spent to “address Saudi Arabia’s defense needs while scaling back U.S. military involvement in specific operations” the Hill reported.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman began negotiations on this deal shortly after the 2016 US election when he sent a delegation to Trump Tower to meet with the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is serving as a senior advisor of sorts to Mr Trump.
The deal will be what the Washington Post said is a “cornerstone” of the proposal encouraging the Gulf states to form its own alliance like the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) military alliance, dubbed “Arab Nato.”
With this arms deal coupled with the re-set in American-Saudi relations comes that fact that it will be Arab Muslims, not Americans, who will be committed as the first line against jihadist aggression in the region.
