Haha this is amazing. Looks like Bernie’s Fox town hall moderator tried to show up M4A and got shut down by the crowd.

Lel.

That’s fantastic.

Not to speak on behalf of Fantastic Mr Fox, but I think he means the worst that those nations have had, not the worst governments EVARRR.

Jared Kushner has his hands all over this one…

Honestly, regardless of party affiliation, our obsession with oil has been a catastrophe for foreign policy.

To be fair, America’s love in with the Saudi’s existed well before Trump. You can trace it back to Nixon and the creation of the “petrodollar”

US going rogue again reinstating application of the extra-territorial provisions of the Helms Burton Act in respect of trade and investment with Cuba. Following a WTO dispute challenge by the EU and Canada, the Clinton Administration agreed to suspend application of Title III of the Act . The suspension has been progressively rolled over by successive Administtations.
I bet Lightizer and Bolton are at the back of this with their contempt for international organisations.
