🇺🇸 🇸🇦 Trump’s ‘hypocritical’ nuclear sale to Saudi Arabia | Al Jazeera English



US President Donald Trump has bypassed Congress to advance the sale of US nuclear power plants to Saudi Arabia, despite concerns it would violate US law, according to a new report by a congressional committee.
Multiple unnamed “whistleblowers” have warned about White House attempts to hurry the transfer of highly sensitive US nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia, according to the staff report by the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
Security analysts have expressed worries that the technology would allow Saudi Arabia to produce nuclear weapons in the future, potentially contributing to an arms race in the Middle East, while US legislators are concerned about the stability of Saudi leadership under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Rami Khouri, professor of journalism at the American University of Beirut and a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, talks to Al Jazeera about what he sees is a “hypocritical” move by the US.

  9. Graet god help saudi arabia
    We have power and mony 🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦

  10. This is all good news why so much negativity

  11. Trump wants to milk Saudis. Netanyahu wants to use them to get rid of Israel's enemies with less costs.

  12. Breaking News: The FBI just raided President Trump's personal library. All 3 books were seized. The president is absolutely furious because….

    …he hadn't finished coloring them yet

  13. Saudi Arabia doesn't say "Death to America". You made your bed Iran, now sleep in it.

  14. Iran has been developing nuclear weapons technology, so is Syria and when Saddam was alive, Iraq, too.
    So what is now wrong for Saudi to have a nuclear power plant? Are you afraid that it will be a fast breeder reactor and they can synthesize plutonium in the process?

  15. You cannot even correctly pronounce, "Khashoggi"

  16. Yes, nuclear power plant is nuclear technology.

  17. Soon nukes are will be available for purchase on eBay and amazon

  18. Selling this potentially lethal technology to any country in that unstable reason is nuts, not to mention illegal. Unbelievable hypocrisy from this administration. They'll do anything to advance their own individual interests profits regardless of the costs to the world.

  19. Putin is in control, choosing Greedy Trump as President along with a Racist Platform was a clever idea in order to overthrow the USA. A country whose citizens hates his fellow citizens because they are different from themselves and divides them in different Groups and Classes (Skin color, Mother Country, Religion, Wealth, ect, ect.) is setting itself up for failure. Putin Vowed upon his election that he would make Russia Great Again. ( sounds familiar ) Since Trump has taken his seat in office, he has stirred-up Racism almost to it's boiling point, he has terminated our peace treaties with Iran and Russia, he has insulted NATO and our closest allies, imposed tariffs on all our major trading partners, cancelled sanctions on our enemies, all but abandoned South Korea and allowed Crazy Kim to continue to build a nuclear arsenal and now he wants to give our nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. My fellow American , if you love your Country, Pray for Robert Muller, his staff and Congress to move swiftly to remove this Traitor from Office, along with all that has knowledge of his doings and his intentions and protected him. May God Bless America!!

  20. this is when trump put the embargo on Iran and there of the world where against that action .trump is a traitor of the worse kind

  21. then why Qatar is hosting and patronizing US arms?  if Saudi have a nuke, Qatar is on the endangered list before Iran

  22. One day he is criminal terrorist, the next day we are giving him Nukes.

  23. Yay!!! Support the saudis 😍

  24. Big money! Next just sell the bombs and say the Saudis made them, more money for the Trump family. As this keeps escalating, Trump will up the ante on his claims we are being invaded. If he can he will stage more border events, not just photo ops with actors playing border officials, but with live ammo. He will declare Martial Law. This is allowed under the National Emergency Laws. Just another escalation in the campaign of distraction from the destruction of the government and the isolation of the USA from the rest of the world. All this discussion is subversive propaganda, attempting to legitimize the validity of this ridiculous situation. Trump has publicly committed many crimes, and is now maneuvering to declare martial law and take the country forever as a dictatorship. He is de facto our dictator, and he could in all reality shoot people on live TV and nothing would be done about it. Trump is an obvious traitor, and Americans are sleeping with their stupid smartphones.

  25. Good News for Iran , Saudi got Nuclear power Plant is almost Ready to Work with USA.

  26. And after that pass it on to ISIS plz..who cares

  27. Hehe, President Trump could care less about what happens in Europe or the Middle-East, for all he cares they can all bomb themselves silly. Not our problem, your problem, deal with your own. As a safeguard, all sold weapons have an expiry date and must be recertified by the USA to function past that time.

  28. Saudi arabia canot build nuclear weapons, for that you need an entire class of indegiounous, engineers, scicentists, and weapons experts with decades of specialized training under thier belt, and saudi arabia doesnt have it, all thier used to is sitting around in thier air conditioned offices and hiring foreign workers to do all the real work, and if any problem arises they just thow money at it and hope it will go away, even if they buy some from pakistan they are going to use the pakistani military to do all the necessary deployment and maintenace requirements, and that wouldnt make them a nuclear power it just means that they are paying pakistan to host some of thier nuclear assets in thier territory
