Re: The Trump Travel Ban List 

Dear Mr. Trump, 

Saudi Arabia seems to be missing from your Muslim terrorist country list. Surly this is an error. In your State of the Union address last Tuesday, you said: 

The vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country,”

And fifteen out of the twenty-one 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Arabian. In fact the mastermind of the attack was a Saudi Arabian. Over the last couple of decades the Saudis’ have spent $100 billion exporting Wahhabism and Osama bin Laden family values throughout the Middle East. The Saudis’ provided the seed money for Al Quida and ISIS and have been nurturing these movements ever since. And now they’re funding efforts to spread this intolerant, radical version of Islam to Southeast Asia; Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. 

Is this why you proposed adding $56 billion and 90,000 troops to our military budget? Are you anticipating future battles with ISIS in SE Asia? Wouldn’t it just be easier to stop the Saudis’ now. Maybe cut off the $piggots, stop buying their oil? Oh, but you want to get rid of high mileage CAFE (The Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standards for US autos meaning we’ll be needing even more oil; doesn’t this just play into the Saudis’ hands? I don’t consider exporting dollars to Saudi Arabia and importing terrorism a fair balance of trade. Do you? 

Or do we have a ‘special’ relationship with the Saudis, one that I don’t fathom, that gives them a pass on our war on terror? Or do all those gold plated palaces speak to you? Will you too be walking hand in hand with their king? 

Just ask'n.
