Congress: End ALL weapon sales to Saudi Arabia

Congress: End ALL weapon sales to Saudi Arabia

The Trump administration’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is corruption at its worst. Recently exposed comments where Trump brags that he “saved [Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s] a**" and "was able to get Congress to leave him alone" in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder are further evidence that Trump cares little about the rule of law or loss of human life.

It is time to hold the Saudi regime accountable for its murder of Jamal Khashoggi and war crimes in Yemen. Congress must enact an immediate ban on arms sales to Saudi Arabia immediately.

Why is this important?

President Trump’s recently publicized comments that he “saved” known authoritarian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) of Saudi Arabia from accountability in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi’s brutal murder are utterly unacceptable.

We cannot let Trump allow MbS to act with impunity, nor can we allow an erosion of the checks and balances in our own system of government. Congress has got to stop the Trump administration’s blank check for authoritarians and despots.

By halting weapon sales to Saudi Arabia, we, through Congress, can hold MbS accountable — breaking this corrupt relationship apart and removing the firepower he needs to wage war.

Sign the petition urging Congress to immediately halt ALL weapon sales to Saudi Arabia.
