Trump’s State Department (Mike Pompeo) notifies Congress of a plan to sell over $23 billion worth of military equipment to the United Arab Emirates, including drones.
Last week, the Trump Administration announced a potential sell of F-35 fighter jets to the country. The $23 billion figure in this post includes that package.
The United Arab Emirates played a role in killing civilians in Yemen.
In 2021, with Trump out of office, the Biden administration plans to continue this arms deal, selling the UAE advanced F-35 aircrafts, armed drones, and other equipment.
Some Americans who have been paying attention longer than I have note that this fits the narrative of another scandal from nearly four years ago. Information about the Michael Flynn / Middle East Marshall plan will be added to Trump File at a later time.
