Thats what Trump has been saying for a long time now. He wanted South Korea and Germany to pay for our troops being there as well. I dont see a problem with that. They would be there anyway so why not make them pay for it.

Well if you want germany to pay for the troops there (and there are only very few left since the reunification in 90's) you can gladly have them back.

He said they'll only send them if the Saudis pay. Taking him at his word (lol) it makes the troops there mercenaries for the wahhabists.

 

Wondering why you assume they'd be there anyway? US is a net exporter of oil now. What's the US national interest in protecting the Saudis?

About that "imminent threat" ... the Secretary of Defense says he's not seen any evidence of it. It's a fucking lie.

“Saudi Arabia is paying us for [our troops]. We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia,” Trump said. “I said, listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us. They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1 billion in the bank.”

 

That statement is simply UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. If you are a U.S. soldier or a family member of one, and you or a loved one are simply mercenary chattel sold to the Saudis, you need to send a bill. Don't just be sold for Trump's golf trips. American soldiers are simply cash on a bank ledger to Trump. It's all about money. Fuck em if they get killed, probably costs less if they do. Trump is one evil piece of shit and doesn't even know it which is no surprise but to support him is even worse.

 

More of our troops? More money. MAGA!

Itts always been that way! Troops do get paid to be there, so they are sending a bill! You think they are in the military and NOT being paid? George Washington almost lost the Revolutionary war becuase Congress didnt have money to pay the troops so Washington gave them land after the war. Even during drafts the troops still get paid, thats what started the middle class after WWII. Fuck even Lincoln started a new currency to be able to pay the troops, they weren't fighting to preserve the fucking union, they got paid!

You are easily the biggest dumbfuck on SpikedNation. You don't see any problem with Trump hyping his "Troops for cash" policy to the Saudi government-sure they supplied the 9/11 murderers and terrorists but......THEY PAY CASH FOR OUR TROOPS! I get it. You are a moron. Every person I know in the military is absolutely bullshit that the Commander in Chief thinks of them as just cash. Your attitude says a lot about the United States as 40% of the country just nods their head at his policies and actions. Sad times for this country.

 

Go back to watching One America News and join your friends in today's Trumptard circle jerk.

LOL Uh oh, another Truth Triggered Trumptard because your dear leader made it crystal clear that he's pimping out American soldiers to his Saudi friends. Glad you at least subconsciously realize it.

The problem isn't Trump asking for cash to keep our troops overseas in other countries, defending them. The problem was we were paying for our troops to defend other countries and it was creating this big ass milatrary budget you and everyone else complains about.

 

Other countries don't invest in Defense (CANADA) because they have the USA defending them and dying for them. Might as well get paid if we are going to be there in $ or Oil. If not, fuck you then, have a day, you are on your own.
