Original Message The US is trying to push through a multi-billion dollar arms deal with Saudi Arabia ahead of Donald Trumpís visit to Riyadh, a report has revealed.

The President is set to visit the Vatican, Israel and Saudi Arabia this month, as part of his maiden international trip.

Mr Trump's administration is keen to repair the relationship with the regional power following tensions caused by the Obama administrationís nuclear deal with Iran.

The arms sales contracts are likely to comprise of Lockheed Martin Co program packages with a Terminal Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile defence system worth $1bn (£770 million), a C2BMC software system, and a package with satellite capabilities.

Provided by BAE Systems PLC, a Bradley Fighting Vehicle and an M109 artillery vehicle are also under consideration as part of the deal.

In addition, an $11.5bn (£8.86bn) package made up of four multi-mission surface combatant ships, which had been approved by the US state department in 2015 but never made it to final contract, will also be revisited.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. It's very clear now that we've been conned. By supplying Saudi Arabia with all these goods, Trump is indirectly helping ISIS.
