    Will POTUS Trump & the US continue to coddle the Saudi Arabian government & it terrorist regime, now that Washington Post reporter Khashoggi has been murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey?


    Turks tell U.S. officials they have audio and video recordings that support conclusion Khashoggi was killed

    The Turkish government has told U.S. officials that it has audio and video recordings that prove Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul this month, according to U.S. and Turkish officials.


    Jamal Khashoggi: Turkey has 'shocking' evidence of journalist's murder - CNN

    Turkish authorities have audio and visual evidence that shows journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul just over a week ago, a source familiar with the ongoing investigation told CNN.
    The source, who was briefed by a Western intelligence agency, says the evidence showed there had been an assault and a struggle inside the consulate. There is also evidence of the moment that Khashoggi was killed, the source said.

    Intelligence officials tell Washington Post of 'gruesome' audio and video that confirms Saudi journalist was killed.

    The US Government has a decades long relationship with the terrorist Saudi Arabian government that must end.
    Does POTUS Trump have the cojones to tell the Saudi government to go and get a new arms dealer?
    Will the US ever stop supporting this terrorist regime?

    Trump has been waging a TWO YEAR WAR on the press in America. Trump has been telling the WORLD that the press in America is the "enemy of the people." It looks as if the Saudis took this as a 'green light' to commit murder. It's a BIG DEAL.

    IMO the murder of Khashoggi is a great reason for Nikki Haley to announce her leaving the UN.

    People seem to be acting like that no other president before Donald Trump knew that the Saudis were not 'angels' yet have tolerated / supported them.

    Like it or not, one major fact in life is that the world runs on oil, and that the Saudis are strategically important to this country because they sit atop of a sea of oil.

    One cannot downplay how important a fact that is and having to sometimes 'deal With the Devil'.

    If liberals oppose tge United States fracking or Drilling to tap our own oil supplies to make this country energy-independent then how can they complain about having to deal with other nefarious sources outside of the United States who we are otherwise dependent upon?

    It is a big deal because he was a citizen not because of his profession.

    Starts with calling out and denouncing the Saudi government for their actions.

    But Trump has business ties with the Saudi's so that will never happen. It's all about what is best for Trump, not America.
