Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci says President Trump’s response to Saudi Arabia shows he tends to spice up his statements to the public.
Top Senate Republicans slammed President Donald Trump for his statement backing Saudi Arabia in the wake of the death and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker, tweeted Tuesday, “I never thought I’d see the day a White House would moonlight as a public relations firm for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.”
The criticism follows an official statement the White House released Tuesday, under the subject line “Statement from President Donald J. Trump on Standing with Saudi Arabia.”
“Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event — maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!” Trump writes.
The President continues, “we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi,” and said, “In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran.”
