US Senators Press Trump to Disclose Financial Ties With Saudi Arabia

WASHINGTON, Dec 8: A group of eleven US Senators in a letter urged President Donald Trump to discuss financial dealings between the Trump Organization and Saudi Arabia. Earlier this week US media reported that lobbyists representing Saudi Arabia paid for 500 rooms at the Trump Hotel in Washington, DC.
“We write today to request information regarding any financial ties between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and your family business interests,” the letter said on Friday.
President Donald Trump has said he will not stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia in response to the murder of former Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.
Trump said such action would hurt the United States and give away large defense contracts to other countries, such as China and Russia.
Senators Tom Udall, Patrick Leahy, Richard Durbin, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Martin Heinrich, Edward Markey, Richard Blumenthal and Jeffrey Merkley signed the letter.
