WASHINGTON—Saudi Arabia has constructed with Chinese help a facility for extracting uranium yellowcake from uranium ore, an advance in the oil-rich kingdom’s drive to master nuclear technology, according to Western officials with knowledge of the site.
The facility, which hasn’t been publicly disclosed, is in a sparsely populated area in Saudi Arabia’s northwest and has raised concern among U.S. and allied officials that the kingdom’s nascent nuclear program is moving ahead and that Riyadh is keeping open the option of developing nuclear weapons.
Even though Riyadh is still far from that point, the facility’s exposure appears certain to draw concern in the U.S. Congress, where a bipartisan group of lawmakers has expressed alarm about Saudi nuclear energy plans and about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s 2018 vow that “if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.”
What do you mean by something?
Trump has a lot less power than you seem to think.
So, he can't say something?
President clarified that he did mention Khashoggi's murder in his meeting with the prince but said he would "not comment" on intelligence when pressed about the CIA's assessment about the prince's involvement.
"I did mention it to him very strongly," Trump said when asked about raising the brutal murder. "That was a bad event."
But when another reporter followed up, the US President clarified that he did mention Khashoggi's murder in his meeting with the prince but said he would "not comment" on intelligence when pressed about the CIA's assessment about the prince's involvement.

Trump has a lot less power than you seem to think. Even so, he has done more to fight this kind of stuff than any other President has, that I can remember.
