Saudi Prince Defends Travel Ban, Calls Trump a ‘True Friend of Muslims’

I wonder how fast liberal heads are going to spin when they hear this! The Prince of Saudi Arabia has praised President Donald Trump’s travel ban and even stated that Trump is a “True friend of Muslims!” He agrees that Trump is simply trying to keep terrorists out of America and that there is nothing wrong with that.

According to the Prince’s senior advisor, the meeting with President Trump was a “huge success” and marked a turning point in the relations among our two countries.

Breitbart reports:

On the subject of Trump’s proposed travel ban, which a federal judge in Hawaii blocked yesterday, the Prince argued that “the measure is a sovereign decision aimed at preventing terrorists from entering the United States of America.”

The statement added that Trump had expressed his “deep respect for the Religion of Islam”:

Prince Mohammed considers his Excellency [Trump] as a true friend of Muslims who will serve the Muslim World in an unimaginable manner, opposite to the negative portrait of his Excellency [Trump] that some have tried to promote whether through publishing unjust statements that are taken out of their context or by means of unrealistic media commentaries and analyses about his Excellency.

In addition to clarifying Trump’s attitudes towards Islam, the pair also discussed Saudi investment in America, with the Prince crediting Trump for improving America’s economic climate.

The statement said, “Many of the economic files between the two countries have been discussed. They included huge Saudi investments in the United States of America in addition to exceptionally and largely providing American companies with the opportunities to enter the Saudi market. This would not have been achieved without President Trump’s efforts to improve the climate for investments inside the United States of America.”


President Trump fully supports becoming an ally of Saudi Arabia, and even mentioned to them that they should look into developing nuclear weapons as defense from Iran.

What do you think? Are we looking at a beautiful new friendship or is a relationship with Saudi Arabia a mistake?

Saudi Arabia welcomed President Trump this and his wife with open arms this past week. They even told Melania that she did not need to wear the head scarf when she visited, as Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama did in the past.
