      Ray Khan every president ever has sent help to these people. So it’s an invalid criticism to claim “just this president is helping the Saudis” every president since the 1900s has helped the Saudis in some way shape or form. My criticism is that some people are SOOOO OPEN to Islam and these groups of people.

      Ray Khan I’m serious. Find me a sect of non Western Muslims that like the west due to what we’re doing in Israel and I’ll kiss your feet because if any Muslim does like what we’re backing in Israel they’re not Muslim or are just a Western shill. Have you never read Islamic prophecy, and about things like the coming of the Dajjal?

    • @Melancholy Soldier go back to q anon

    • @ Melancholy Soldier …Yes all your presidents have been compromised and are nothing but puppets of the US Military Industrial Complex. So is that your excuse for Trump selling your souls to the Saudi devils now? It’s okay because Obama did it and Bush did it and Clinton did it? Well it’s not okay that any of them did it but what’s worse is that in 2015 Trump was bragging about how much money he made from the Saudis. Then in 2016 he is blaming them for 911, then his first foreign engagement as president was to go to Saudi Arabia and do a massive weapons deal with them, since May he has pimped out 14,000 US soldiers to the middle east to protect the oil businesses of the Saudi royals…but let me guess, that’s okay because Obama, Bush, Clinton? Am I right?

  2. Most of the 9/1/1 hijackers were Saudi nationals. But the Saudis buy lots of weapons from the USA so Trump won’t care.

    tRump said Saudis are Paying for it. So let them pay for this too

  4. Trump, will blame the shooting on Obama.

      I didn’t say one word about President Obama first of all and that’s the only reply a tRumpty Dumbpty bootlicker can try to reply with.

      @Jetski Archi you made a foolish comment, but not worth the time to report.

    • Landon’s Chanel | December 6, 2019 at 6:05 PM | Reply

      Jetski Archi Wonder why you ignore Trump but worry about everyone else..

    • @ Jetski Archi …Obama is not the president, Trump is. Trump personally enriched himself off the Saudis bragging how they bought $50million dollar apartments from him at a rally in 2015. In 2016 he was blaming them for 911 a year later his first foreign engagement as president was to do an massive weapons deal with them. Since May Trump has deployed 14,000 troops to the middle east to protect the oil businesses of the Saudi royals…but wait, this is all Obama’s fault right?

  6. Trumps friends still killing Americans

    • @Jetski Archi
      You’re the only ones trying to justify anything we don’t need to justify anything, you guys and your whataboutism so lame

    • @ Jetski Archi ….
      “Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me.
      They spend $40 million, $50 million, am I supposed to dislike them? I
      like them very much.” – (Trump at an Alabama rally on Aug. 21,

    • @ Jetski Archi ….Also Trump:
      “Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis….It was Saudi —
      take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents.” – Donald Trump

      @Jetski Archi Bwahahaha. Those are gifts from foreign leaders that go straight into the national archives. It happens to every President. It’s symbolic. The Obamas got to keep $0 of that!

  7. Maybe Kushner okayed the shooting at Pensacola like he okayed the brutal killing of Kashoggi.

    “doesn’t mean it is terrorism”, if someone, american or saudi, shoots and kills many people, it is terrorism

    • Wrong. “Terrorism is the calculated unlawful use of violence or threat of violence used to inculate fear into a government or society to ACHIEVE GOALS WHICH ARE POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS OR IDEOLOGICAL IN NATURE”

      @Cody Hopkins You’re really not picking up the nuance of what I’m saying. I see you’re more in a fight-mode. That’s understandable, considering the place you’re in.
      Here’s the facts then:
      >I agree with you.
      >The above statements are dripping with snark, because the concept sickens me.
      >News consistently tends to run tragedies like this until they wear out their welcome, which also tends to inspire others to violence, unintentionally.
      >There is verifiable bias in reporting when it comes to crimes committed by individuals of color, over white individuals.
      >Saying “Nobody in their right mind would like this” is, in fact, subjective opinion. It’s meaningful, but subjective.
      >Pick your battles, and if you plan to come at me about facts, follow it up with facts, not just simply stating that facts are important. That’s obvious, but unhelpful.

      @James Lee Thank you for providing the definition of terrorism.
      As far as I, personally, know at this moment, we do not know the motives of this individual.
      We can state, however, that he made a calculated effort to utilize a weapon in this place, and that he made the choice to bypass its securities to do so, meaning this place was a target, and in attacking the compound, would garner national attention, especially in a time of hypersensitivity to the rising rates of public shootings.
      Standard gun violence that occurs in the streets, I would not call ‘terrorism.’ Gang violence, domestic violence, manslaughter. There’s alot of different definitions for it.
      Public shootings, however, rarely seem to be random acts of violence, and are usually meant to not only make a statement, but also send a message to the general public, which inspires fear in them.
      Be it for political, religious, or ideological causes, they inspire that terror. Ideological causes, especially, is a pretty broad and vague term that could cover a lot of different facets of motivation.

      I don’t know what you seek to gain in fighting against calling it ‘terrorism’ but it certainly had the same effect. I see places selling ‘kevlar school bags’ these days and think to myself… terrorism on these lands has taken root.

      @OceanFragments I’m a “white people” and I don’t like to hear of this violence on anyone or anything…

    But the Saudis pay in cash 😕

  10. Yep pilot training for a saudi. What could go wrong?

  11. JTG Travel guy | December 6, 2019 at 2:35 PM | Reply

    Trump will pardon him. Especially if he’s going to get another hotel deal out of it.

  12. Well since he was a Saudi I’m sure 45 will give a posthumous medal…..

  13. A Saudi national there for training? WTF!

  14. Yeah, Saudis would never attack our country.

    Considering the last time Saudi nationals attacked the US, does this mean we’re gonna attack Iraq again?

  16. Christopher Otaku | December 6, 2019 at 2:48 PM | Reply

    Let’s see will Trump defend the man just because he’s Saudi.

    • Anglerfish Deepcuts | December 6, 2019 at 3:14 PM | Reply

      I’m sure he’ll go with the “mentally ill” card to not risk the money he craves from the gun lobby and the corrupt oil sheikhs.

    • Christopher Otaku | December 6, 2019 at 3:26 PM | Reply

      @Anglerfish Deepcuts You will soon know Trump position when news of Jared and the Royal family starts circulating in the news cycle.

  17. LittleDragon03 | December 6, 2019 at 2:55 PM | Reply

    Pilot training for a Saudi national ? Didn’t a bunch of his family members fly planes into the twin towers on 9/11. Who the heck approved this crap?

  18. But if the guy was from Iran, he would be a terrorist by now.

  19. When Saudi sends their people they dont send their best.

  20. “Doesn’t mean it’s an act of terrorism.” Keep dreaming.
