Saudi Arabia has spent nearly $30 million dollars in the last year on lobbying firms to influence U.S. foreign policy and sway public perception of the despotic government and it’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. It also brokered 8 business deals with Donald Trump since announcing his bid for U.S. presidency, according to guest, Dr. Ben Freeman, the Director and founder of the Foreign Influence Transparency Initiative at the Center for International Policy.
