Brutal and Pragmatic Honesty – President Trump Releases Statement on Kashoggi and Saudi Arabia…

President Trump, not necessarily the White House – but rather, President Trump, releases an absolutely pitch-perfect statement that encapsulates the myriad of interests that have sought to exploit, manipulate, leverage and utilize the murder of Jamal Kashoggi.

This entirely accurate and brutally honest statement by President Trump will drive the left-wing media, specifically WaPo, NYT and CNN, absolutely bananas:

The world is a very dangerous place!

The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Iranians have killed many Americans and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. Iran states openly, and with great force, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” Iran is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.”

On the other hand, Saudi Arabia would gladly withdraw from Yemen if the Iranians would agree to leave. They would immediately provide desperately needed humanitarian assistance. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has agreed to spend billions of dollars in leading the fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism.

After my heavily negotiated trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Kingdom agreed to spend and invest $450 billion in the United States. This is a record amount of money. It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, tremendous economic development, and much additional wealth for the United States. Of the $450 billion, $110 billion will be spent on the purchase of military equipment from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and many other great U.S. defense contractors. If we foolishly cancel these contracts, Russia and China would be the enormous beneficiaries – and very happy to acquire all of this newfound business. It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!

The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body.

Representatives of Saudi Arabia say that Jamal Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but my decision is in no way based on that – this is an unacceptable and horrible crime.

King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!

That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region. It is our paramount goal to fully eliminate the threat of terrorism throughout the world!

I understand there are members of Congress who, for political or other reasons, would like to go in a different direction – and they are free to do so. I will consider whatever ideas are presented to me, but only if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America. After the United States, Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producing nation in the world. They have worked closely with us and have been very responsive to my requests to keeping oil prices at reasonable levels – so important for the world.

As President of the United States I intend to ensure that, in a very dangerous world, America is pursuing its national interests and vigorously contesting countries that wish to do us harm. Very simply it is called America First!

~President Donald J Trump

There are rebel forces there as well. This after the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), finally got in there to investigate and take samples. That report was issued over the summer.

          Of course it is not our job to handle it. I was merely questioning your assertion that Assad isn’t killing his own people. He did, he is… and always will. That is how these countries keep “the peace”.

        I’ll go on record and say NO Assad did not do the things he’s been framed and blamed and accused and found guilty without ANY semblance of real evidence, of doing. This is entirely a cabal set-up, using NGOs as the proxies and “ISIS” as a proxy.

        Assad’s country is overrun with militias and Muslim groups trying to take over. In some cases “his own people” are killing and torturing his own soldiers and his loyal own people. It’s hard to fight a civil war or revolution without your own people being killed on one side or the other!

        I will say it’s doubtful that he did and if he or people he controlled did, we definitely don’t have reliable info about WWWWW. Too long, public policy has been shaped by credulous adherence to European and related narratives. We now know much of that is most likely false or at least tainted propaganda. As PDJT understands, perfect truth and certainty isn’t available or even worthwhile in these situations. What’s more important is that we don’t get played.

      Assad is the toughest read in the M E. He was elected by a majority of his people in a democratic election. Also, you know when the above 3 wanted him replaced, that the narrative is pejorative.

    • Yep. Trump has switched sides to the neocon warmonger. So much for, ‘I’m not the president of the world, I’m the president of the United States. George W. Bush made the biggest mistake in American history getting us into the Middle East and Afghanistan and has cost this country trillions of dollars for nothing. That money should have been used to rebuild America.”

      So much for saving America.

        How exactly has Pres Trump “switched sides” and become a “neocon warmonger”? By opting not to destroy Saudi Arabia, and starting another Middle East war?

        Pres Trump has opted to sanction the individuals involved and go no further. How is this “neocon warmongering”? How is Pres Trump now connected to Bush’s war, especially after Pres Trump condemned said war?
        You make no sense.

        How much would it have cost the US if The Taliban and Al Qaeda took over large parts of the Middle East? How much would it cost us in blood and treasure if Al Qaeda grew into a extremely large international organization that would sponsor attacks on US interests around the world? How about if they acquired a Nuclear weapon?

        What would have been the cost for inaction after 9/11?

        You people cannot possibly be this shortsighted. You really care about a muslim brotherhood “journalist” who’s only connection to America was the WaPO? And you really think the Saudis would murder him in the embassy in their hated rival of Turkey? Are you serious? The set-ups of the “deep state” are so simple, a Jack Russell could figure them out. Suddenly there’s a mysterious “event”, usually a murder of some sort. Instantly guilty parties are found, the press screams and points fingers, then the lackey, spineless politicians give their 2 cents and suddenly Trump is framed as a “bad guy” if he doesn’t do what the media and the traitors think he should do.

        HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS BEFORE YOU GET THE PLAYBOOK?

        bliss…I was in Iraq for over seven years on multiple deployments and during the whole Sahawa (Awakening) movement is when the Assad and Arab Spring began to happen. I can’t say more than al Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI later known as ISI and then ISIS) were the one’s that expanded upon the Tunisian man immolating himself and creating the whole firestorm across the M.E.

        The MSM jumped on the bandwagon of the “Arab Spring” which was backed by AQI knowing the US would use it to try to depose Assad for THEM. The Arab Spring was another hoax that was assisted by our MSM and key gov’t leaders that were previously mentioned.

        Sidenote…Assad is/was also being setup by our side to be removed with help from ISIS backed insurgents. Not saying Assad is not a bad guy but he just happens to be the next dictator in a long line of our history of removals. And who says the USA doesn’t mess with other countries elections?? Where is Mueller when you need him?

    Assad is perennially ‘the devil that we know.’ It is my understanding that Israel to date has NEVER been in favor of Assad’s overthrow. That being said, the leadership of Syria is up to the Syrians and no others: Not the Turks, Not the Iranians, Not the Russians, Not the Kurds, Not Israel, and not the U.S. Let’s just see how the Alawites make out.

    The media is truly the enemy of the American people, until the mouth pieces feel the pain, there will be no change. Replacements will eventually become hard to find, that is the power of the everyday Joe. We are in a war, the sooner that we realize this, the sooner we will be able to correct it. All politics are local, they spread nationally by the grass roots propagandists. Dig up the root and there will be no weed.

    30,000 Americans killed by illegal immigrants since 2001. I’ve never once heard the left say they are outraged by this but yet a Saudi citizen is killed by possibly SA and it is total outrage.

    I have a very simple take on all this.

    Trashoggi was nothing but collateral damage. ME-style mafia hit job. I don’t care. Who knows. Maybe the world is a better place without him? Not that I condone his style of departure, but while USA is cleaning up our DoJ/FIB mobsters in our western-syle manner (certainly considered mamby-pamby by ME standards), so, too, is MsB cleaning our his mobsters in typical SA manner.

    To each his own. Let well enough alone. So I approve of VSGDJT’s pragmatic approach and his Statement.

    This is why President Trump is without peer in politics. He speaks the truth, the whole truth – and owns the downside.

    So what is the difference of Obama ordering a drone strike on an American citizen in a middle eastern country…. from our favorite liberal site Vox:

    “Even more chilling from a constitutional perspective is that the Obama administration has — with little to no complaint from the American people or the other two branches of government — deliberately targeted and killed US citizens in drone strikes, without those individuals ever having been given their constitutional right to due process of law.

    The Obama administration justifies this by arguing that “when an American has made the decision to affiliate himself with al-Qaeda and target fellow Americans, that there is a legal justification for us to try and stop them from carrying out plots.”

    I couldn’t care less what happened to Kashoggi. To me he sounded like a ‘bad hombre’ cruising for a bruisin’. I don’t care if his death caused some consternation at the CIA with their carefully (?) laid plans. Tough $h!t… really.
