In January, President Trump said he told Saudi Arabia it would have to pay if it wanted more U.S. troops.

President Trump said during a Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham in January:

“We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia—I said, listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us. They’re paying us. They’ve already deposited $1B in the bank.”
