I don't have a good reason to post this thread other than perhaps there is a difference in confidence between our or current and previous pres.


What a difference an election can make for the respect American leaders have for our country.

There were two very different outcomes when two American presidents greeted the king of Saudi Arabia.
www.theamericanmirror.com...
Trump meeting the King of Saudi Arabia, respectful and confident.

Barack Obama meeting the Saudi King, the bow seems over done and perhaps doting.


I think this may be a difference in how these 2 guys deal with people and leaders. One seems to be overly concerned about offending them and the other is respectful but firm.
And like it or not, body language is a huge thing when we live in suck a publicized world.

Despite his character flaws and contrary to popular belief, Trump is actually a great leader with very strong character traits.

You don't reach the 1% by being a weakling.

Obama cowered like a dog in the presence of the Saudis. Trump came home with 110 billion in tribute. Draw your own conclusion.

The real story will be are his character flaws contrary to running the US?

In my opinion, nope. He's far from perfect, just like everyone else on this planet.

It's the media blowing everything out of proportion to make it look like there is actually a problem when there isn't.

$110 billion in tribute?

I thought that was an arms deal.

We're running guns for the Saudis....great. I feel better.

Wonder when our soldiers will have to kill or be killed by who ever ends up with these "arms".

Well it's nice that Trump doesn't grovel before Salman as Obama did to his predecessor.

Still, i'd prefer it if he refused to meet with the monstrous tyrant that rules Arabia full stop.

In the world we presently live in he must do things to keep up appearances.

I wounder what the real skinny is behind closed doors?

Saudi Arabia is a backwards nation with it's treatment of gay related rights-women's rights and civil rights.

Good question.

If this were a deal that went towards a US industry other than the weapon manufacturers, I'd be a bit more excited about it.

Why would Trump bow to the King of Saud? He's far too smart for that.

But our Domestically based Terrorist Network (CNN) went through great pains to make it look like President Trump is bowing. Check it out: www.cnn.com... (wish there was a quick way to link to photos)

Trump will probably say something and the Saudis will stop selling us oil.
