Trump Brings Up Saudi Journalist's Citizenship Status When Asked About Sanctions

President Donald Trump on Thursday continued to push back on any talk of sanctions against Saudi Arabia over what happened to missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

ďAgain this took place in Turkey and to the best of our knowledge, Khashoggi is not a United States citizen, is that right? Heís a permanent resident. We donít like it, and we donít like it even a little bit,Ē he said, before adding that he didnít want to prevent ď$110 billion from being spent in this country,Ē referencing the U.S. arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

2. Next on the list for deportation those

with Permanent Residence status? That pig touting military sales as more important than life and death values. Rumpie wants a war to boost his ratings with anyone other than Saudi Arabia or Russia.

5. What he's really saying is

Money has more value to him then another persons life does, especially when he can use it for his propaganda campaign he's running on his followers this is good, its not. It just shows how evil trump is. He's conned many to believe good from others is bad , bad from him is really good, then he repeats it.

7. Nicole Wallace is my favorite cable news anchor,

she had an expert on her show today and his commentary should be the narrative but sadly we have a corporate media. The expert stated that 2 of our intelligence agencies intercepted information that the Saudis were planning to kidnap the WP journalist. The expert said it was the duty of those intelligence agencies to notify the WP journalist of this plot. So, was this information included in the president's daily briefing? Now that Jared has security clearance did he know about this Saudi plot. Why didn't the intelligence agencies inform the WP journalist? Did Jared and or Trump stop them? I mean after all the Saudi crown prince is BFF of Trump and Jared.

I am waiting for this real narrative to reappear tonight on cable news, but I doubt it, maybe Rachel will follow up.

If Trump and or Jared stopped the CIA and NIA from informing the WP journalist they are accomplices to murder.

9. OK, a woman journalist was just on Chris Hayes,

she brought up the fact that our intelligence knew that the Saudis were out to harm the WP journalist, so why didn't they warn him? Chris Hayes shook his head in agreement and moved on.

Where is the real Narrative of why our intelligence failed to warn the WP journalist? Did Jared and or Trump prevent it?

The frigging corrupt corporate media makes me sick.

10. CNN has Robert Jordan former US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia on now and he is blasting

MBS through the roof. He is reminding the audience of his brutal recent past and believes he is capable of ordering the murder. Sees this as an international scandal that requires the strongest response. Not just from the US but from the international community.

I like the way this man thinks.

12. Just watched Rachel do a segment

She did bring up the question of why our intelligence didn't inform the WP journalist that he was in danger. She gave a video response from Trump where he mumbled that the journalist was not a US citizen. Rachel then moved on with the story.

I'm sorry but the big narrative is being glossed over. Our agencies had a duty to inform the journalist that he was in danger, someone stopped them and I'm looking directly at the guy who finally got his security clearance approved, Jared Kushner.

Someone in the corporate media needs to answer my question.
