Saudi government policies have put the kingdom in dire straits such that it is not able to stand up to US President Donald Trump's manipulative policies and dismiss his excessive demands, a lawmaker said.
In a talk with ICANA about Trump's recent demand that Riyadh should fund the US if it wants Washington's continued military presence in Syria, Mohammad Jamali said, "Trump makes blunt comments on Saudi Arabia. 
"While leaders of the two countries are routinely exchanging visits, Trump is open in making demands from Saudi Arabia and the Saudis do not dare to resist them."
"[Saudi Crown Prince] Mohammed bin Salman has stepped into an area that he is not able to exit. The US is well aware that the Saudis cannot retrace their path and is thus taking (undue) advantage of it," he said on Wednesday.
