Does Saudi Arabia Own Donald Trump?

In the aftermath of the disappearance of prominent Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, President Donald Trump tweeted: “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)!”

Is this yet another barefaced lie from the commander-in-chief? In this video essay, Mehdi Hasan examines Trump’s long history of doing deals with Saudi royals and reminds us how the former reality TV star even bragged about his financial ties to the kingdom during the election campaign. He also highlights the controversial payments made by the Saudi government to Trump-owned properties since the Republican businessman entered the White House. With the president refusing to take a strong stance against the Saudi government’s alleged murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Mehdi asks: “Does Saudi Arabia own Donald Trump?”
