(Sputnik) The new US presidential administration includes a number of experienced professionals and could contribute to settlement of many world problems, Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel Jubeir said Sunday at a time the administration is facing huge criticism for being a failure in the history of the US.

He added that the US President Donald Trump’s administration is “one of the biggest factors” that will help resolve many challenges, adding that he is very optimistic.

“We have one of the biggest factors, I think, that will have to resolve many of these challenges, [and it] is the new American administration. Yes, I am very optimistic about the Trump administration… When we look at the composition of the Cabinet and the personalities that he appointed: Secretary of Defense [James Mattis], Secretary of State [Rex Tillerson], Secretary of Homeland Security [John Kelly]… Secretary of Treasury [Steven Mnuchin]. These are very experienced, highly-skilled, highly-capable individuals,” Jubeir said, speaking at the Munich Security Conference (MSC).

Earlier, the Saudi Arabian oil minister said that Riyadh and Washington “cannot afford not to work together.”

What can he say more to toady Trump’s new team. He makes better talk than some Western politicians that join the critical chorus of those elites that once supported H. Clinton.

The only ticket that really deserved support was Sanders/Gabbard. Trump, we don’t know where thing will go while with Killary, this would have been a Catastrophe at a very likely to be a never seen level. Thus, I don’t think I’d appreciate too much his domestic policy. Now just hope he doesn’t ends making smth too stupid. I’d clearly prefer the US going a little bit more isolationists or at least, if they intervene, let’s be to help make things better, not to make the world sucks even more than it already does…

Al-Jubeir & his wahhabi terrorist friends in Riyadh are already playing mind games with Trump hoping to trick him lije they did with previous US governments. Surely Trump realises these rats are wolves in sheeps clothing along with Turkey & Israel.
