Actually, Trump went to Saudi Arabia for his first overseas trip, making it the first destination which says a lot, and he got a sword to dance the Ardha like the baboon that he is. Obama made it perfectly clear he wanted to do to Egypt for his first trip to speak at Cairo University and was not received very well and his next visit was to Saudi Arabia where he bowed down when greeting King Abul Aziz Salman. He took a lot of flack here in the US for that. Bush was holding the king's hand as if he was his first cousin! The US has spent hundreds of billions to help protect Saudiya and please them until recently where they realized their ways were wrong and now that worthless no good for nothing (except he's much better than that goon Trump) has to go there and beg forgiveness for the horrible things he said about Saudiya and MBS.
You have now proved KSA is the global superpower, US is the vassal.
The Saudi royal family exists because the US kept it. The moment they will go out of line, they will be replaced. Let us not be delusional here.
