From Glenn Kessler, trying to figure out what President Trump meant when he said that Saudi Arabia would pay for 100 percent of our new troop deployment there:
White House officials would not explain what Trump meant.
Nor would Defense officials or State officials. The Saudis declined comment too. So what’s up?
The answer is obvious, of course: the Saudis aren’t paying for 100 percent of our troop deployment. Trump is just making this up. Any other questions?
