For the record, I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia

No, of course it wasn't.
But guess what? He is not the President now. Its all on Trump. Everything is his fault now, just like the financial crisis was Obama's fault, even though he inherited it, just like the war was Obama's fault, even though he inherited that.
Obama was in no way perfect, and limited in his power because of Republican obstructionist methodologies, only having about a month with a clear shot to get anything through congress in his entire eight year Presidency. He did many things that bare no resemblance to right or proper. But again, he is not the President now, and who is sitting in that office NOW, is all that matters. As I only had to explain to another rampant whataboutist earlier, your argument means nothing, if all you can do is wave the whatabout flag, because in reasoned argument, you might as well be waving a white flag.
Someone please explain this to me.
President Trump says he has no business with Saudi Arabia, yet there are tons of examples of him
talking about business with Saudi Arabia.
Trump’s claim is transparently false. As the Washington Post reported in August, the Saudi regime has been pumping money directly into Trump’s pockets through his hotels.
“After two years of decline, revenue from room rentals [at the Trump International Hotel in Manhattan] went up 13 percent in the first three months of 2018,” the Post reported — in large part due to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s patronage of the hotel during a visit to New York City in which he and his entourage didn’t even end up staying there.

Jesus Christ. There really is a Trump Derangement Syndrome.
And it's his supporters who have it.
For the record, I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia (or Russia, for that matter). Any suggestion that I have is just more FAKE NEWS (of which there is plenty)!
