Mustafa AY – TDO – 19.11.2018 On Sunday, US President Donald Trump made very confusing remarks with regards to Khashoggi murder. Trump stated that he won’t listen to tape of Khashoggi murder because he’s already known how the vicious murder was committed.
Following Trump’s words, many prominent US news agencies like Washington Post claimed that White House seeks way for covering the facts relating to the murder up in order to maintain the close alliance with Riyadh. According to US-based media outlets, that US State Department’s Spoke woman Nauert rebutted CIA’s newly-concluded report for Khashoggi is a planned initiative. That’s why, US-based media outlets have apparently taken stance against White House.
US media agencies is not the only burden that Trump administration has been subject to cope with. Democrats and Republican in Senate and Congress has put intense pressure on Trump to issue tough sanctions on Saudi Arabia. However, Trump administration now seems to persist in maintaining close affairs with Riyadh led by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.
