In the final months of President Donald Trump’s presidency, his administration notified Congress of billions in potential Foreign Military Sales – including the possibility of the UAE purchasing F-35s and MQ-9 Reapers, Taiwan to buy guided cruise missiles and reconnaissance pods for its F-16 fighters. In all, the State Department authorized arms transfers worth about $175 billion in 2020, though actual completed sales for the year totaled just $50.8 billion – a three-year low.
