With all of that in mind, watch this video below of lying Donald Trump responding to questions about Saudi Arabia and Jamal Khashoggi, particularly the question about why the FBI has not been tasked to investigate given that Khashoggi is a resident of Virginia. And note his body language. Trump folds his arms whenever he’s feeling insecure, backed in a corner, and trying to exhibit control. In fact, he’s doing the opposite.
Once again, Donald Trump refuses to acknowledge that Jamal Khashoggi was a resident of the United States. He had long lived in Virginia. He was a graduate of Indiana University. It is a moral low point for this nation that Trump refuses to stand up for American ideals, siding time and time again with his Saudi investors. Instead of addressing the seriousness of a so-called American ally freely targeting and assassinating a U.S.-based journalist simply because he is critical of the Saudi regime, Trump preferred to bully the reporter for asking the necessary questions. That’s another tell of his insecurity. When you don’t want to come off as the dumbest person in the room, you try to make someone else look dumber. You see, Trump only punches down. When it comes to standing up to real danger, real power, he’s a coward. After all, this is a man who actually curtsied to the king of Saudi Arabia because he adorned Trump’s neck with a golden trinket. HE CURTSIED! Can you imagine if a Democratic president had done such a thing?
We have nearly two years of evidence that Donald Trump is a threat to the security of this nation and the world. His gross incompetence will lead to further deaths. We owe it to Jamal Khashoggi and all journalists who put themselves in danger every single day to get to the bottom of this and hold Saudi Arabia accountable.
