Another Trump victory, Senate fails to override veto, Trump admin gets the go ahead to sell arms to Saudi Arabia

It was the first veto by the President and 8 plus billion in sales !!! Jobs President !!!



Trump administration gets green light to sell arms to Saudi Arabia, after Senate rejects veto overrides
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/tru...eto-votes-fail

Three votes Monday to override Trump's vetoes failed. Each required a two-thirds vote.

The White House also argued that stopping the sales would send a signal that the United States didn't stand by its partners and allies, particularly at a time when threats from hostile countries such as Iran have been increasing.

Surely Trump and his supporters would label that as fake news.

Ah yes...sell weapons to the home of Wahhabi Islam, Bin Laden’s country. You all praise any and everything Trump does with zero thought as to the possible implications of his actions.

Knowing your posting history you undoubtedly said the exact same thing about president Obama, right?

Oh wait, he was part of your team, so anything he did was great, but anything Trump does is evil.

Classic example of TDS on display.

So you think that arming the Saudis is a good thing?

The US shipped weapons and secrets to the Saudis and Emiratis. Now, some are in the hands of fighters linked to al Qaeda and Iran.
Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners have transferred American-made weapons to al Qaeda-linked fighters, hardline Salafi militias, and other factions waging war in Yemen, in violation of their agreements with the United States, a CNN investigation has found.
The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America's sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones.

As usual many on the left who make anti-Trump commentary are missing the point. Fair-minded people can agree or disagree with any policy by either party.
But posters like Seacove and other hard leftists with TDS will say "Trump is evil", yet were silent when their boy was doing the same thing or worse.

Remember when the pictures of kids sleeping on floors inside cages surfaced and many leftists on CD and across this country were retweeting the images, showing how heartless and evil Trump was.
However when they discovered the images were from before Trump was elected, and occurred under Obama & Co, not an apology was made, tweets were deleted, and they looked for the next opportunity to attack Trump.
