    President Donald Trump reportedly begged the Vietnamese government to buy American military equipment because he needed “quick wins” ahead of upcoming elections.

    Sources tell Bloomberg that Trump grilled Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc about why his country wasn’t spending more money buying American weapons.

    “He needed quick wins, he told his team in the room, because he’d be running for re-election before anyone realized,” Bloomberg reports. “And weapons sales, in Trump’s view, are good for his approval ratings.”

    Trump apparently spent much of his trip hawking American weapons to other countries, as he sought to emulate the early success he had in cutting a massive weapons deal with Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

    “Trump rarely set down in a country without pointing out that buying a few F-18s would go a long way toward winning his heart,” Bloomberg writes.
    “But he’ll return home to Washington without having secured a major new order for American defense contractors.”

    Seems a bit silly tho trying to sell F18 jets to Vietnam. They can’t afford that at the moment.

    Wow, the idea that a president needs to win with the American people to keep his job.

    What a concept.

    All this time I thought they were elected to do whatever they want.

    Of course presidents need wins, losses don't help them at all.

    You'd think they would be aware of what they can and can't afford.

    The US foreign policy, start trouble and infighting in regions, then sell weapons to both sides. THe mess we created in the middle east is reaping huge rewards for defense contractors and weapons manufacturers. Disgraceful
