Trump Says He Would Sell Other Gulf Countries Same Advanced Weapons Given To Israel Tyler Durden Thu, 09/17/2020 – 00:45 Authored by Dave DeCamp via AntiWar.com, In an interview ahead of the signing ceremony for the normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, Trump said he would be willing to sell other countries in the Middle East “the same advanced weapons” the US sells to Israel.
“They're very wealthy countries for the most part,” Trump told Fox News.
Trump also mentioned the UAE's desire for US-made F-35s and said he would “personally not have a problem” with the UAE acquiring the warplanes.
The treaties that were signed on Tuesday made no mention of F-35s, but the sale is clearly still on the table.
