  1. No, Very simply it is called Trump first! America is ashamed of this reprehensible man.

    “CNN reporter stunned that Trump didn’t even read Khashoggi report before excusing Saudi prince’s role in his murder”

    “CNN reporter Pamela Brown was “stunned” by President Donald Trump’s statement on Saudi Arabia’s murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, in which the president essentially took the side of the Saudi royal family over the assessment of United States intelligence services.

    “It is stunning on a number of levels,” said Brown, “particularly the fact that the president hasn’t even received the report from his intelligence community.” The CIA says Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered the murder of the Washington Post reporter.

    “Essentially what he is saying in this statement is that it doesn’t matter if the crown prince had any involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi,” Brown continued, slamming Trump for “standing by” the Saudis when his own intelligence services tell him the opposite. “This is extraordinary and a slap in the face to the intelligence community.”


    This also from RawStory:

  2. “…our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia” doesn’t necessarily mean a relationship with MbS. He could simply say adieu mon ami MbS, and give free way to the “usurpation”. The father would have swallowed it, and the arms deal safe. Realpolitik is understandable, but that’s ridiculous.

    More and more he looks like Berlusconi. Berlusconi used to say “my friend Putin”. I remarked Trump uses the same language. The worst heads of State were “friends”. And the two good ones had been defined the one who is “a bit tanned” [Obama] or “la culona” (the one with the big ass) [Merkel].

    Same lack of education as well. But until it’s Italy, who cares, when it’s US it’s worrisome.

  3. This is just an example of Trumps approach to a “deal”, which has no regard for the morals or ethics of the entity he’s dealing with. Is the Trumps organisations approach to business acceptable as the USAs basis for its foreign policy?

  4. Don’t be bamboozled by the arms sale argument charade; it’s the Saudi money in (and possibly laundered through) his Real Estate. Besides he admires murderous dictators…Putin, Duarte, etc. and is ‘in love with’ his BFF Kim of North Korea.

    My god, there is no one in this admin that can actually edit? One exclamation only please, and not after the first sentence.

  6. OMG.
    It‘s astonishing (and frightening) to see his attempts at gaslighting and obfuscation in written form:
    „That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi“.
    We DO know it was MbS who ordered the killing, there is absolutely no doubt about it.
    @Franceska: It‘s true he mirrors Berlusconi in more than just one way, yet for some reason Silvio was always given some slack for being „funny“ while stupid.
    Remember his „good friend Muammar“, who taught him all about „Bunga Bunga“?
    With this guy, however, it‘s starting to be really scary.

  7. Trump is an accessory to murder, paid by Saudi hush money.
