Trump and GOP have just made a decision that could have a huge negative effect on the U.S. As reported by The Hill, Tuesday, the Senate just rejected the effort to block President Trump’s $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia.
Which means we could be in big trouble. Top Republican, Mitch McConnell, already warned that America should not sell weapons to Saudi Arabia, it would be a problem to our country’s allies.
“As we know, some have raised the issue of Saudi conduct of that war, but blocking this arms sale will diminish Saudi capability to target with precision. …Part of the training provided to Saudi Arabia will be on subjects such as avoiding civilian casualties.”
Even Republican Senator, Bob Corker was so confused as to why anyone would want to reject stopping this move that could prevent ‘unintended casualties’ from airstrikes.
“This is something — it’s hard for me to understand why people would oppose the selling of precision guided missiles.”
Although the efforts to block the sale were stopped, other Republicans still encouraged to continue the fight. Senator Rand Paul took to Twitter to state his case.
