Welcoming the Saudi prince in the White House on Tuesday shows Trump's support for MBS as heir of King Salman, who has introduced radical reforms in the conservative country, like empowering women, allowing cinemas, etc.

Mr. Trump said the Iran deal, which he is threatening to rip up by a congressional May 12 deadline, was a key item on their agenda.

"But Iran has not been treating that part of the world or the world itself appropriately", he said.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday implored Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince to share his nation's wealth by continuing to purchase American-made weapons.

After meeting Trump, bin Salman's two-week visit to the U.S.is scheduled to include meetings with other senior officials, including Defense Secretary James Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. This is President Trump speaking about the weapons deal.

Lawmakers have sharply criticized the war Saudi Arabia has waged with US support over the past several years in Yemen, in which at least 1,000 civilians have been killed in bombing attacks. Sen. The conflict has led USA lawmakers to propose a cutoff in support for a Saudi-led bombing campaign that has killed thousands.

"He (bin Salman) could not use such amateurish lies to hide the role of Saudi Arabia's government and leaders in creating the most unsafe terrorist groups in modern history and in major terrorist incidents like the September 11 (attacks)", Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said, according to Iran's Tasnim News Agency.

Trump talked up last year's $200 billion arms sales scheme, and promised to push through more of the sales in the coming months, promising the Saudis the "finest military equipment anywhere".

He further said that after hours of debate, opponents of the legislation narrowly won a vote to table the resolution, effectively killing it for the time being.

Breitbart News reported in September that the "Sunni Saudi Arabia-owned Al Arabiya television channel is expected to air a documentary accusing Shiite Iran of lending support to al-Qaeda jihadists involved in the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States homeland". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said halting assistance would also be seen as a victory for Iran.

Crown Prince Mohammed and Kushner have forged a close relationship, which has at times come under criticism in Washington for circumventing normal diplomatic channels. "There's nobody that even comes close to us in terms of technology and the quality of the equipment, and Saudi Arabia appreciates that".
