Trump Gives Saudi Arabia Secret Access

President Donald Trump's administration is allowing the US military defense contractor Raytheon to work with Saudi Arabia to develop high-tech parts for smart bombs, The New York Times reported.

The provision, which has not been previously disclosed, is part of a broader national-emergency declaration the Trump administration issued last month to bypass Congress and sell weapons to Saudi Arabia.

Business Insider reports the US has sold smart bombs to the Saudis under Trump and previous administrations, but it has closely guarded the technology used to build the bombs for national security reasons.
