Donald Trump: Arms Dealer-In-Chief. Ana Kasparian, Amberia Allen, and Maytha Alhassen, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why he thinks weapons sales will get him reelected. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT:

“President Donald Trump had one question for Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc: Why wasn’t his country buying more American military equipment?

For Trump, a self-styled traveling salesman, crisscrossing the region to reverse decades of trade deficits, Vietnam’s decision to buy arms from Russia was incomprehensible, almost insulting. Never mind that U.S. law prevented such sales until last year.

Trump reminded Phuc that he’s been president for 10 months, according to two people who requested anonymity to discuss a private meeting. What was he waiting for?

He needed quick wins, he told his team in the room, because he’d be running for re-election before anyone realized. And weapons sales, in Trump’s view, are good for his approval ratings.

The meeting was a microcosm of the president’s 11-day tour through Asia, a marathon trip where Trump was repeatedly lavished with flattering gestures by foreign leaders, but frustrated in his desire to score quick wins on trade or North Korea that would buoy him politically back home.

Asian nations were looking for signs Trump hadn’t abandoned the region when he pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal in January. The White House seemed to suggest the sheer length of the trip was proof enough, with both Trump and his aides referencing it again and again.”

    Trump has no idea what the the American public wants. He has never really talked to an American. He talks only to the elite rich and powerful.

    If there was any better unbiased media I'd watch it. If you don't like something, and you're not a troll, don't watch it. This media source is the best, their hosts are all full hearted caring individuals, who give real opinions. Hate filled words do nothing but motivate an unstoppable force. Love changes everything, so we'd love for all the hatred comments to end, but they won't so we turn this into fuel. Fuel for a cause. Finally if you say you want a business person in politics or you'd like government to be run like a business you know nothing of government and what businesses likes to do with governments. There's a reason we have fall safes on the stock market, there's a reason we cash in gold, there's a reason the word, "bail-out," is a term. The reason is we gave businesses the keys to our government's rules and regulations the like a teenager with their first car they drove it irresponsibly. Don't come waving closed minded philosophy when you buy propaganda from a con-artist.

    Canada wanted to buy Boeing Super Hornets but stopped the deal after Trump's administration decided to tax Bombardier HUGE tariffs because Delta Airlines wanted to buy their jets over Boeings'. Now Canada is entertaining Airbus fighter jets.

    You can't have it both ways. You want us to buy? Let us sell.

    amazing so assholes are against socialism yet they are ok with the gov paying private owned weapons manufactures with tax payers money to build weapons so the gov can sell those weapons to other countries. if all countries have the same weapons as the USA then we do not really have a military edge.

    It's a sad day when all America has to offer the world is weapons of war. As Jesus said"you reap what you sow/ you live by the sword you die by the sword". Eventually these chickens will come home to roost. When all you've got to offer the world is war mongering you can bet that you will eventually become the major victim of your own crimes.
