The King of Saudi Arabia plans to step down and announce his son as his successor next week, a source close to the country's royal family has exclusively told DailyMail.com. The move is seen as the final step in 32-year-old Prince Mohammed bin Salman's power grab, which began earlier this month with the arrests of more than 40 princes and government ministers in a corruption probe. The source said King Salman will continue only as a ceremonial figurehead, handing over official leadership of the country to his son - often referred to as MBS.

Good thing we have enough of our own now.
I wonder how much President Trump has been involved with this? I know he is doing what he can to get after Iran.
This prince is going to go after Iran and its proxies. Keep an eye on the oil prices.
Filled up my wife’s car yesterday and will fill up my pickup at Costco tomorrow.
The Clintoons and Podesta’s have lost a lot of Saudi Money in this past week, and they will lose more.
What will happen if Iran lights off one of the nukes that they are absolutely pinky swear not building?
I think they mean Godfather.
There is a current theory that this is at least 51% driven by Trump.
The Saudis cannot compete with US oil. They need to handle themselves differently. Trump has explained this to them.
Best news I’ve had today....thanks.
The Saudis must be kicking themselves for sucking up to “sure Thing” hillary.
The deposed princes are probably the ones who engineered the Hillary suck-up........
.....the Saudis even bought hillary a pricey big-screen TV to air her “crashing” through the glass ceiling election night.
The intel agencies have known for years which royals were supporting terror operations. With them out of the picture Trump will have a freer hand in dealing with Iran.
When he visited S/A, I thought then that the Saudis looked desperate in the way they honored Trump........
The King said later they needed Trump.
Apparently they are facing severe financial conditions.
“I wonder how much President Trump has been involved with this? I know he is doing what he can to get after Iran.”
I think he is also trying to clip the wings of the Wahhabist savages. This may be the price for continued protection of the scum Saudis. A bit of chlorine in the mix. I know that 9/11 eats at him. This may be how it is playing out.
Agreed. I bet they feel like they bit into granite after dealing with Clintons, Bushes and the subservient 0.
