United States will support Saudi Arabia despite the murder

Market Trends - 21/11/2018

On Tuesday the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump said that the United States will support their Friend Saudi Arabia and they will stand beside them despite the murder of the famous journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In a long report, president Trump stated that "we may never know all of the facts surrounding" Khashoggi's death, but "our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia."

Donald Trump stated that the U.S. intelligence agencies are however evaluating all the data enclosing the murder of the famous journalist.

Last Friday the Washington Post published that the CIA had decided according to clues they gathered that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman himself had arranged and ordered the killing of Khashoggi.

Last Saturday President Trump said to journalists that a "very full report" will be released on Thursday regarding the research conducted by the United States. But in his comments, Trump seemed to doubt that the U.S. investigation of the matter was concluded. "It could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event," Trump said in the statement, though "maybe he did and maybe he didn't!"

Outside the White House during some comments before leaving for a resort in Florida, the President said the CIA had "nothing definitive" on the prince's responsibility. The president's written announcement started a bipartisan reaction between congressional lawgivers. In a statement Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. said that Trump's possible decision not to punish the Saudi crown prince "is offensive to every value the United States holds dear."
