How influential has Saudi Arabia been on Trump?

Leaked documents seem to indicate that Saudi Arabia and the UAE have been attempting to push Donald Trump towards more confrontational approaches to Qatar and Iran through Elliot Brody, a member of the Republican National Committee.

    A new batch of leaked documents appears to show Saudi Arabia's attempts to influence decisions by the Trump administration.

    They've emerged as the country's crown prince continues his high-profile visit to the US.

    The New York Times reports that Mohammed bin Salman worked with lobbyists to push President Donald Trump into positions favouring Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
