The US President admits Mohammed bin Salman may have known about the plan to murder journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The CIA says the Crown Prince actually ordered it. But Trump’s contradicted his intelligence agency saying that’s not a definitive determination. And in any case he says it would be foolish to take action against Riyadh.
That would threaten lucrative weapons deals and push the price of oil up. Very simple, said Trump, It’s America First. But it might not be that simple – all eyes are now on the US Congress to see what it will do. So, America First? Or justice last?
