Is it possible to get a U.S. credit score from a Kuwaiti credit card and apply for a U.S. credit card based on said credit score without a SSN or tax id number?

So the idea is that I have been using a Kuwaiti credit card ever since I was employed (I am not an American citizen) and wish to apply for a non-secured U.S. credit card without a SSN or tax id number and only based on a credit score of my Kuwaiti credit card (if I can get one).

Non-secured as in a credit card that does not require me to deposit an amount to use as if it was a debit card with the difference of actually building credit history whenever used.

No, its not possible. Firstly, we don't have credit scores in Kuwait. Secondly, you must have an SSN especially for non-secured credit card.

Back when Obama was president the answer was yes. Now that we have a real president the answer is still yes, but it’s significantly harder.

No, it is not possible without a social security number. Regardless, of the president as mentioned in the other comment.
