Washington: The Gulf state of Saudi Arabia has close ties with the United States. Successive presidents in the United States have maintained good relations with Saudi Arabia. He arrived in Saudi Arabia in 2017 after Donald Trump took office as US President. The Saudi royal family did not forget to give Trump valuable gifts during the visit.
But reports from People say that’s just what’s happening. The Saudi royal family gifted Trump a robe, a sword and a dagger. The gift of a coat made of leopard fur was in the news at the time.
The New York Times has revealed that all these gifts from the Saudi royal family are fake. During his tenure, Trump sought to maintain close ties with Saudi Arabia. The United States needed Saudi help to contain Iran. Saudi Arabia and the United States have agreed to reduce Iran. Saudi was a great way to get to Trump’s West Asian goals. So after he became president, Trump went straight to Saudi Arabia.
Trump, who has been president of the United States for four years, has not yet released details of the gifts he received from Saudi Arabia. On the last day of his resignation, all gifts were handed over from the White House to the General Services Administration. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service then examined the details. That’s when Homeland Security spokeswoman Tyler Cherry told the New York Times.
Animal lovers have been outraged by the fact that leopard coats and ivory daggers are illegal, citing the Environmental Protection Act passed by the US Congress in 1973.
A new report from the New York Times has shocked the Saudi government as well as the United States. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. But for a rich country like Saudi Arabia, there is no need to show irregularities in giving valuable gifts. Earlier, members of the Saudi royal family said they had given Trump 82 gifts.
