The United States has signed a billion dollar arms sale to Saudi Arabia.

President Donald Trump has criticised previous presidents for selling arms to nations that sponsor terrorism.

The sale, approved this morning, includes $670 million in missiles.

In 2015 President Trump said the Prince of Saudi Arabia was buying President Obama out and that if he were president, it wouldn't happen.

US lawmakers have thirty days to act if they want to block the sale.
