Why Qatar Is Causing Headaches For Trump

305 ratings | 33773 views
From causing rifts between allies in the Middle East to multi-million dollar investments in properties connected to the president, Trump's biggest headaches in the future could come out of oil-rich Qatar. ** UPDATE ** Qatar provided CNBC with a statement from Jassim Al-Thani, Media Attaché for the State of Qatar: “Qatar is a force for stability in the region, it is GCC neighbors who have negatively impacted the security and unity of the Middle East by launching an illegal blockade against our country.” “Last year, US intelligence officials confirmed that Qatar News Agency was hacked by hostile foreign powers, an illegal cyberattack that led directly to the current dispute. As a result of the blockade, families remain separated, students are unable to continue their education, and access to lifesaving medicine has been severely restricted. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights stressed that the “unilateral measures” taken by the blockading countries have led to detrimental effects on ordinary citizens. The International Court of Justice ruled that the UAE must lift its measures against Qatar.” “Qatar has never supported terrorism or extremism in any form. On the contrary, Qatar is the only country that has taken concrete action to combat extremism after President Trump challenged Middle Eastern nations to “drive out” terrorists. Further, Qatar signed a comprehensive Memorandum of Understanding with the US government to combat terrorism that goes further than any other Arab nation.” “Qatar hosts 11,000 American troops at Al Udeid Air Base, the largest US military base in the Middle East. And it recently broke ground on the base’s expansion, and just last week held the second US-Qatar Counterterrorism Dialogue. In the words of Defense Secretary James Mattis, the US “enjoys a longstanding defense relationship with Qatar – a strong and valued military partner.” “The money Qatar has spent in the United States pales in comparison to what has been spent by its neighbors to defame Qatar’s reputation in the US. While the blockading countries invested in a smear campaign, Qatar has focused its efforts on its positive relationship with United States and room for future cooperation in investment, countering terrorism, and defense.” » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

This is a disgustingly biased anti-qatar report. But what's really shocking is how blatant CNBC is about becoming a stooge for Saudi and UAE propaganda.

CNBC if this was under president Obama, you would have called it "Why Qatar is causing a headache for the US" the reason you mention trump in your title is to deceive the audience into thinking somehow this problem only exists under trump. If you believe it does than perhaps you could explain to your viewers why Obamas slave markets in libya are thriving and an issue. Fake news strikes again.

+Gaius Scipio fair enough. Have a good day
Gaius Scipio (2 months ago)
Just seeking clarity. You see I didn't even realize the US went to war with Libya for starters.
Chris Ljubic (2 months ago)
The Obama admin had no congressional authorization of war pertaining to Libya, the bush admin did pertaining to Iraq. I see you are not interested in debating the actual point of what i was saying in the beginning, but rather a blame game of who's political favorite. Re-read my initial post and clarify for yourself. If you want to debate, Trump, Obama, Bush, and their actions as president i would be happy to, but my initial post was to highlight the hypocrisy of media outlets political favoritism in their posts which is UNHEALTHY FOR DEMOCRACY as it misshapes public opinion leading to misinformed rabid protests, and societal unease. I dont care which network is doing it it is wrong. I assume you believe propaganda is wrong as its basis is in manipulation?
Gaius Scipio (2 months ago)
Hmmm, interesting. So does that mean that the Bush administration is responsible for the turmoil in Iraq and perhaps even the Arab Spring? So did the Obama administration act unilaterally or did they have congressional support?
Chris Ljubic (2 months ago)
+Gaius Scipio under the obama administration libyan leader muamar ghaddafi was executed and the islamaic jihadists that overthrew him and have now developed an islamic state were trained, funded, and given intelligence as well as massive air support to carry this out from the obama admin. Since then african migrants flowing through libya have been aprehended by these groups and under islamic sharia law are being sold as slaves in open air markets. And as for income, i assume you are joking. The point was that headlines make all the difference and because some news outlets choose to be political they manipulate these haedlines to assign blame or throw darkness on political opponents maliciously. The result, the public in general is misinformed and misplace thier emotions to political targets of convenience.

It's Saudi Arabia and the UAE that are the trouble! 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudis! The rest were from the UAE! Suuni Wahhabi Muslims! The human rights infringements aren't any different between any of the actors! Jared Kushner gave up our intelligence assets to MBS, the Saudi Arabian Prince! Also, we've lost 30 such Chinese intelligence assets! I assume also that this can be accredited to Jared Kushner!

Are you dumb? Muslim extremist groups love slaughtering each other. The Sauds are accusing Qatar of playing for the other team.
