The SWAMP is back!

Saudi Arabia could well be the main focus of the Biden administration and this will increase efforts by lobbyists to dampen attacks against the Royals

When Donald Trump came to power, one of his mission was to clean the swamp.

The swamp is the lobbying power of various grouping that represent local or foreign bidders.

The lobbyists will bid for a certain project or country.

In the U.S. most foreign powers and countries of influence have their lobbyists gyrating the White House to push their client’s projects or demands and requests.

During the last election campaign, Trump campaigned to win votes on the basis he will continue to clean the swamp.


But he lost the elections and despite the 70 million votes he received, he has to take the swamp mower with him back to Mar-a-Lago near the Florida swamps.


The question now is whether the pro-Iranian lobbyists will be strong enough to get another deal with the Biden administration?

A deal that could get them to be on the better side in their nuclear development programme?

Trump killed the deal by calling it a one-sided affair. But the Iranians vowed they will get it back after the Americans kick Trump out of power.


The Saudis are now in trouble. The Biden administration, just like any other Democratic administration, will put emphasis on human rights.

It will not be surprising to see intermittent attacks against the Saudi Royals from the Biden administration.

The Barack Obama administration did not shy itself from proclaiming the Saudis as the main responsible party for the 911 attacks.

Obama wanted to start the ball rolling for a compensation fee in the billions for the victims’ families. He ended his term before that could happen.

Will the Biden government bring it up?

Nevertheless, reports say Saudi Arabia spent at least $7.5 million lobbying against the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.[166]
