Trump Accused Of “Selling” U.S. Troops To Foreign Countries


On Friday, Fox news aired a very weird, I
guess you would call it, interview between Donald Trump and Fox news host Laura Ingraham,
where Trump appeared to have admitted that he is actually selling US troops to other
countries. Here it is:
We’re sending more to Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia is paying us for it. You know, we’re doing something that nobody’s
ever done. I said to Saudi Arabia, we have a very good
relationship with Saudi Arabia, I said, listen, you’re very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve
got to pay us. They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1 billion in the
bank. We are going to help them, but these rich
countries have to pay for it. South Korea gave us $500 million. They never gave us, they gave us $500 million. I said, you’ve got to help us along. We have 32,000 soldiers in South Korea protecting
you from North Korea. You’ve got to pay, and they gave us $500 million. So immediately after this clip went public
and everybody heard Donald Trump say what he says to other countries, oh, you want some
of our troops? You got to give me a little bit of money,
right? Yeah. Put some money in my back pocket here and
then I’m going to send some troops over there to protect you. Now, if that kind of sounds familiar, it’s
because it should because that is essentially how the mafia used to work, right? You want protection for your little shop. Well, the shop owners got to give us a little
bit of money, right? Just leave it in an envelope there by the
door. We’ll pick it up and then we’ll make sure
that nothing bad happens to you, but if you don’t give us our money, then we can pretty
much guarantee you that something bad is going to happen to you. Now, one of the bigger questions that arose
from this little clip that’s now going viral is where’s the money going? Right? Is it actually money that’s going to Donald
Trump? Is it money that’s going to the federal government
or is it some kind of backhanded deal? Is it more Donald Trump saying, hey, Saudi
Arabia, you want some of our troops? I’ve got all these condos that need to be
sold. Maybe, maybe that’s what Trump means. Honestly, we don’t know at this point, but
we do know that Saudi Arabia, as Trump himself has said they buy lots of condos from him. They buy lots of real estate from this guy,
so therefore he loves them and he’s willing to sell out literally our military to have
them go over and do whatever Saudi Arabia needs them to do, to fight and die for a different
country just because Donald Trump or whoever it is, gets a little extra cash in their pocket. That is not what any member of the US military
signed up for. They signed up for the military because they
wanted to protect and serve the United States. That’s what they wanted to do. But it’s all about the United States. Right? They didn’t ever think for a second that they
were going to be sold to another country, that they were going to have to act as private
mercenaries for some country they’ve never stepped foot in, but that is exactly what
Donald Trump is doing here. Now again, immediately after this clip went
viral, you had lots of people come out, actually some Republicans and former Republicans too,
attacking the president for essentially turning the United States military into his private
mercenary army for hire. Give us the money. We’ll give you the troops. Those are mercenaries. You, you sell them to the highest bidder,
and that is what Donald Trump admitted to in that clip with Laura Ingraham. That’s what’s happening right now with our
military. So any of you hardcore Republicans out there,
you know you’ve got your little I support the troops stickers on the back of your pickup
truck, I want you to take note of this story. Donald Trump, the Republicans in general,
they do not care about US troops. Trump has said repeatedly that these men and
women in our military, they’re just killing machines. That’s all they are. They’re not human. They’re killing machines and now he’s out
there selling them to any country willing to pay Trump’s price. That’s not supporting the troops, that’s turning
our military into Trump’s private army for hire.
