The Washington Post revealed Sunday that even after Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign in July 2015, his financial disclosures show that in August, Trump registered eight new companies in Saudi Arabia.

Donald Trump’s conflict of interest problem is growing exponentially now that it looks like, against all reason, he will be moving into the White House in January.

The Washington Post shows that Trump filed new companies in Saudi Arabia, including THC Jeddah Hotel and DT Jeddah Technical Services. Trump frequently names companies after the city where he makes hotel deals, with Jeddah being the second largest city in Saudi Arabia.

In an article titled “A scramble to assess the dangers of President-elect Donald Trump’s global business empire,” WaPo reveals the extent of Trump’s foreign business ventures. It shows that Donald Trump was named president or director of the Saudi Arabian companies, and four of them remained active when he filed his financial disclosures in May. According to WaPo, the disclosures do not reveal many details, and representatives for Trump did not respond to queries.

Conflict of interest concerns are escalated when it is revealed that on the day Trump created these companies, Aug. 21, 2015, he spoke to a rally crowd about his approach to Saudi Arabia, saying:

‘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.’

The video clip below, courtesy of C-SPAN, shows the speech Trump gave justifying his interested in protecting Saudi Arabia on the same day his Saudi Arabian companies were formed.

Five months later, Trump then appeared on Fox News, again advocating for closer ties and protection for Saudi Arabia against any threat from Iran:

‘Well, I would want to help Saudi Arabia. I would want to protect Saudi Arabia. But Saudi Arabia is going to have to help us economically. They were making, before the oil went down … they were making $1 billion a day.’

Watch the Fox News video below, with President-elect Donald Trump telling Bill O’Reilly about his policy for providing protection for Saudi Arabia, where his news business have been established.

In a typically hypocritical move in October, Donald Trump called for his then-opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, to return all the money the Clinton Foundation had received from Saudi donors:

‘I think she should give back the $25 to $35 million she’s taken from Saudi Arabia and she should give it back fast.’

The Washington Post performed and analysis of Trump’s financials and found that:

‘At least 111 Trump companies have done business in 18 countries and territories across South America, Asia and the Middle East.’

Yet Donald Trump refuses the release the tax forms that would provide a more detailed account of his businesses, and provide insight as to how he might be influenced by international financial pressures rather than the best interests of the country he expects to govern.

If Donald Trump is not protecting his own business interests, bigger concerns arise. The president-elect seems insistent on bargaining American military might based on cash. His threat to withdraw from NATO was based on other countries’ economic input to the decades-old alliance. Now, it’s revealed that his interest in protecting Saudi Arabia is based on whether Saudi Arabia can “help us economically.” In July, Trump told The New York Times:

‘But if we are not going to be reasonably reimbursed for the tremendous cost of protecting these massive nations with tremendous wealth —

‘you have the tape going on?

‘Then yes, I would be absolutely prepared to tell those countries, “Congratulations, you will be defending yourself.”‘

Donald Trump seems to think that he can hire out the U.S. Armed Forces to the highest bidder like cheap mercenaries.
