Specifically, he's allied with Mohammad bin Salman, the new ruling prince. There are still Saudi snakes in the weeds but Trump is helping MbS in exchange for his support elsewhere.

There's probably a LOT of snakes, and some of them are more subtle than others. Just look at our Obama holdover in the State Dept. who did his job for 4 years until he saw an opportunity to fumble a major virus outbreak with that cruise ship!

Al-Waleed bin Talal, a big critic of Trump and MbS was arrested and reportedly hung upside down and beaten. Oh, and he was the richest Saudi at the time who just happened to own a huge percentage of Twitter stock. Reportedly he paid billions to be released, and you could more or less say he's been put in his place.

It's a cold world, and our president knows how to navigate it to keep us safe.

Edit: Flashback to before MbS purge https://i.imgur.com/LV170d1.jpg
