Kushner called Lockheed CEO about $100B Saudi arms deal


Then an American official raised the idea of the Saudis' buying a sophisticated radar system created to shoot down ballistic missiles. So he dialed up Hewson to ask her if the anti-ballistic missile system's price could be cut down, according to the report, which cited multiple unnamed administration officials.

Trump is set to use his Saudi Arabia trip this weekend to announce one of the largest arms sales deals in USA history, estimated to be upwards of $100 billion.

Issues of foreign diplomacy evolved into an interagency effort once the administration began, according to a source, and Kushner's role in negotiating the arms deal was just one part of an larger effort that included the State Department, Department of Defense and National Security Council. Moreover, the arms sale will be only one element of Trump's Saudi Arabia visit. "During this time, we disconnect completely-no emails, no TV, no phone calls, no Internet".

In 2013, he lashed out at Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency worker who leaked USA government surveillance documents. The FBI has been investigating possible ties between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the election.

The report was published as Mr Trump travelled to Saudi Arabia on the first leg of a trip overseas that the White House hopes will shift attention away from the political firestorm triggered by his firing last week of former FBI Director James Comey.

"It's quite normal for them to sit down with the son-in-law of a president and do a deal", Chollet reportedly said.

Trump has tasked Kushner with brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

The incident recalled a frequent boast by President Trump that he had personally pressured Lockheed to lower costs on an order of F-35 fighter jets.

Lockheed is the only company that manufactures THAAD.

Separately, the New York Times reported on Friday that Mr Trump told Russian officials at a White House meeting last week that firing Mr Comey relieved "great pressure" that the president was facing from the ongoing probe into Russia and the election. "He was at the table when his father-in-law hosted the deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, at a lunch in the State Dining Room in March".

Republicans hold 52 seats in the chamber to Democrats' 48. "The timing and the reasons for this decision make little sense to me". Trump told NBC News that during their January dinner, he asked Comey if he was under investigation and Comey said he wasn't.

Meanwhile, Trump is set to leave Friday for his first foreign trip since assuming office.
