President Trump said this to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham:
I said to Saudi Arabia - we have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia - I said “Listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us.” They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited 1 billion dollars in the bank.
I’m interested in the part in bold. My question is, is President Trump right that Saudi Arabia has deposited 1 billion dollars to pay the United States for the US troop presence in Saudi Arabia?
