Saudis gave the US $360billion in deals. Now they want Trump to rescind 9/11 lawsuit law


Saudi Arabia — President Donald Trump struck a series of deals with Saudi Arabia on his two-day visit but the kingdom is still anxiously waiting for him to deliver on something else: the repeal of a contentious 2016 law that allows relatives of 9/11 victims to sue the kingdom for their deaths. Saudi officials have been quietly lobbying the administration and Congress to overturn the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which led more than 800 families to file suit in New York in March. The problem: Trump supported the bill and can’t do much to change it even if he wanted to. Still, Saudis are convinced the man they consider the ultimate salesman will make a deal. “Do you think he will agree after all these activities we are doing for him?” asked Abdulnasser Gharem, a well-known Saudi artist who went to high school with two of the 9/11 hijackers in his hometown of Namas. Altogether, 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis.

Well isn't this a surprise they give us hundreds of billions now they want the lawsuit gone. What will Trump do? Will he remain the stalwart protector of the America people and tell these terrorist lovers to take their money and shove it because justice for Americans come before profit? Or will he revert to true form and get the lawsuit dropped because profit is the most important thing to him.

Why are you putting it on Trump? How would he get the lawsuit dropped? It doesn't work like that. It would be the House and Senate that need to repeal the bill allowing families to sue, then he would sign or not. I don't see this going anywhere. There was broad support to allow the families to sue, including Trump.

if he rescinds the lawsuit law he deserves to be attacked.

I cannot imagine many people here defending him over that... it would definitely be an out of line decision.

Why not? Lobbyists rule this country. Why not foreign powers too?

Educate yourself fool.

Trump didn't file the lawsuit, he can't "rescind" it.

Deny ignorance indeed.

You must have had your head under a rock for the last 100+ days. Republicans are fighting him almost as hard as the Democrats. That's how you know Trump is legit and actually trying to get things accomplished. The established parties want to remain fat cats.

There was not a TSA then. It was part of Homeland Security created after and in response to 911.

True. But I'm not sure the Saudis understand that the Congress won't be bullied.

Deny Ignorance indeed...

what part of Law did you not understand... In case you are not aware a law was passed in 2016 that allows families of the 9/11 attack victims to sue Saudi Arabia... hence the Lawsuit part of the phrase.

He can push for the repeal of a law (rare to see one repealed but it is possible) as the president.. (yes I realize he cannot do it himself but he can take the lead pushing for it)

Helpful hint... next time finish reading before spazing out trying for a gotcha moment.

He. Can't. Rescind. A. Law.

And he supported the law just last year, he's not going to push to get it repealed.

Don't pout because you spouted off nonsense. Just own it and move on.

How can President Trump rescind a standing law?
He does not have the power to do that.

The Saudi are going to argue that this domestic law violates international law. It's not Congress' jurisdiction.

Perhaps, the Saudi's are hoping that The Donald will soften the blow when these law suits fall flat in international courts.

Huh?!

If he is like a king to them it is only in the sense that they act like revolting subjects. For a newly elected president has historically little support from his party's member of congress.

I'm sure that Saudis know you have to donate to the Clinton foundation to get laws changed.

So you think President Trump is going to help the Saudi's fight an international law case?

Face it, this is yet anther bogus thread, written by someone who doesn't even know how their own govt works, but has enough hatred for the President that reality gets suspended for a bogus hit piece.
