The deal would also permit Saudi Arabia to enrich and reprocess uranium, which can be used for nuclear weapons. Congress must approve any agreement that is forged, and lawmakers will have three months to weigh in on the deal. [What in the world is Trump thinking?]

The Trump administration is considering forging a deal with Saudi Arabia allowing a financially strapped nuclear energy company to build plants in the Middle Eastern country.

Energy Department Chief Rick Perry will travel to London Friday to discuss with Saudi Arabian officials the prospect of building reactors in the kingdom, according to Tuesday Bloomberg report. The deal would also permit Saudi Arabia to enrich and reprocess uranium.

Some U.S. agreements prohibit the enrichment and reprocessing of uranium in exchange for the use of nuclear technology. Similar prohibitions scuttled nuclear deals during former President Barack Obama's administration.
