Trump signs $110M defense deal after arrival in Saudi Arabia

President Donald Trump signed a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia after arriving in Riyadh on Saturday to start his first trip abroad as president, focusing on strengthening ties to combat terrorism.


In the deal, Saudi Arabia agrees to buy military equipment from the United States and to hire American companies to build them in Saudi Arabia, the White House said. Saudi Arabia agreed to pay $350 billion over the next decade.

Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner called the president of Lockheed Martin, a major supplier of U.S. military equipment, for a lower price for the radar system as part of the deal, according to The New York Times.
