Told ya that they'd admonish with a feather.

The Saudis have free reign to commit human rights abuses, fund terror groups and execute homosexuals.

The US is too chicken to stand up to the Kingdom.

Trump said he saw no reason to block Saudi purchases of U.S. arms or its investments in the United States despite the journalist's case, saying the Gulf nation would just move its money into Russia and China.

Money is money.

Better turn a blind eye on this.

We should not upset our friend.

You just disparaged your boy Trump. Your posts are too obvious; try harder.

Didnt stop the last administration to go with that Iran deal, go figure.

Is that the Iran deal Trump/Bolton/Pompeo and the other war hawks scrapped so they could spend billions more of US taxpayers' money feeding US war industries (among their biggest backers) and further destabilizing the most unstable region in the world?

If so, doesn't figure.

Obama was responsible for Qaddafi getting ousted. That's not loving dictators. I'm "sure" of that.

And the Democrats wanted it for.....let me guess, to build a utopia for all Americans? The only thing that the Democrats cared about him was using the billing and said they would get to prop up more social programs in the US and for the European counterparts to have a greater access to its markets have business and trade and that’s the only thing they cared about, didn’t care one iota of the nuclear threat that it post to the US, Israel and the Saudis.

As well as our ambassador, nice job.

I think maybe the Senate and House should ask some questions about just what are Donald Trump's, Jared and Ivanka's financial commitments, connections, business involvements and debts with Saudi Arabia really are?

This statement has no basis in reality.

As well as Otto Warmbier and Xiyue Wang. Their fates are on Trump.

To be fair, Trump isn’t the first leader of the US to bend over for this disgusting regime. Other leaders of western countries aren’t generally better.

I think now we can see why people don’t take the left as seriously as they shouldn’t.

There is no evidence to support this assertion.

A Washington Post journalist and critic of MbS is tortured and murdered but the dotard wants his deal to go through. A deal with the nation who gave you 21st century terrorism and have an horrific human rights record.

More evidence of the hypocrisy of the US and Trump's love for murderous regimes.

Iran, on the other hand, has kept to its side of the deal - but the barbaric US administration must keep Iran's enemies appeased.

Trump is weak . His admiration for despots is enabling them, notably in SA and the Russian despot.

Trump should halt the arms sales - let the house of Saud buy Russian missiles that fly backwards.

Lol, of course that's the way it would be, right? It's the President's job to promote US business abroad; more jobs for American workers!
