As Pompeo meets with President Erdogan of Turkey today , some of Trump's advisers are telling him :- what you do about this will define you as 45th US president .

So Trump has a decision to make - either

1. do something about the wrongdoers which are the Saudi royal family , or

2. face the consequences of being defined as a total hypocrite , defender and excuse giver for a brutal murderous regime , etc

Do we think he is being given good advice ?

Well he campaigned on not continuing this world policing policy that past admins have put us through, so I'd say he should keep that promise and not get involved.

Trump's brain:

"Should I look into this Saudi thing or bigly tweet about Horseface? Let me get a couple cheeseburgers and think this through.'

Senate "Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the only way to lower the record-high federal deficit would be to cut entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security".


So now this is again under attack, while billions of US dollars go out to countries who hate us and plan evil at every turn. Why not bolster our own programs, it is our money after all, our sweat.

The Saudi's do not need our support, and just yesterday it was announced the US was the worlds biggest producer of oil..!

We need not dance around their atrocities with a blind eye.

The problem with that is that the victim was a not only a journalist with a US outlet but a resident of the US.

So that kind of makes this a US issue.

Drop SA from all business, what oil they have left anyway? Replace them with a post brexit UK for trade. Win - win...

He's a Saudi from what I've read, so seems to be a Saudi Arabia or Humans Rights Council issue. Either way we don't need to be involved.

He's definitely not a citizen and I'm unable to find any proof he even lives here in the US.

Yeah this sucks for Trump.

He seems to be giving the Saudi's an olive branch to send out some culprits to be publically hung out to dry but that will let his apponents claim Trump is playing Saudi's game and not holding them accountable.

If Trump does anything with sanctions it will certainly affect the economy in the US that is Trumps shoe-in for re election.

He is in a spot here. Send Mossad in to wack a couple princes below board and leave the ball in Saudi's court. Thats why Im not a politician lol

He's a US resident with a green card, but not a citizen.

Saudi Arabia you say?

The same Saudi Arabia that paid for Obama's education?

Yea this decision is of little consequence.

If the mockingbird media would do their job and report this guys personal and familial history with Saudi Arabia combined with the battle in Saudi Arabia between the new and old guard, people might not be so quick to point the finger at who the bad guy or guilty parties are.

So not a citizen. Not a US problem. If people want no trade at all with any country where the government is involved at all in killing some one then we won't be able to do much of anything.

Forget the journalist and Obama,

remember one thing, Saudi Arabia is not our friend.

Stop selling knives to the man that is going to stab you in the back.
