Trump lied while speaking to reporters and claimed that he has no deals with Saudi Arabia after he previously admitted that Saudis had given him millions.
Trump said, “Just so you understand, I don’t make deals with Saudi Arabia, I don’t have money from Saudi Arabia, I have nothing to do with Saudi Arabia I couldn’t care less and I will tell you, as most of you know, being president has cost me a fortune and that’s okay with me I knew that a long time ago. But being president has cost me a fortune, a tremendous fortune like you’ve never seen before. Someday I will tell you what that is. I knew that a long time ago because I don’t do deals all I do is focus on this country and making great deals for this country I don’t focus on making great deals for myself because I don’t care anymore so Saudi Arabia has nothing to do with me what does have to do with me is putting America first.”

Donald Trump is lying and trying to back away because he is getting a clue about what might be coming.
Trump just flat lied about his financial relationship with Saudi Arabia.
If Congress wasn’t going to investigate this matter before, they definitely will now.
