UAE denies trying to influence Trump's election | Arab News |

The United Arab Emirates did not try to influence the election of Donald Trump, a minister said, following reports that the president's son met with an envoy representing the crown princes of the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

"Attention needs to be paid to facts over innuendo & speculation; the UAE made no effort to influence the 2016 US election," Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Twitter.

"Like other governments friendly to the US, UAE officials had contact with staff & advisers in both 2016 presidential campaigns to inform and be informed of the candidates' foreign policy positions."

    The New York Times last week reported on a meeting in August 2016 at which Lebanese-American businessman George Nader told Donald Trump, Jr. that the Gulf Arab leaders were eager to help his father win the election.

From a reply [translation mine] ...

Arab proverb: "There is nothing to be loved about you except your wealth... that's all that you've got." ... America is obsessed with the whole world with a state that has no political or economic value, and a river that has been influenced or made by a decision in America.

Difficult to decipher the conversation ... this man must be from Qatar as I found this in his twitter feed ...

    In August 2016, Nader met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower offering assistance to the his father's presidential campaign. Nader served as an envoy representing Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince and de facto ruler Mohammad bin Salman and Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The meeting included Blackwater founderErik Prince again and Joel Zamel, an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation. [Source: WikiPedia]
