Article by WN. Com Correspondent Dallas Darling Despite mounting evidence the Saudi regime was behind the apparent murder of Saudi dissident and Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, President Donald Trump has done his best to defend the Saudi Royal Family.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump put a big and risky bet on Saudi Arabia and its 33-year-old crown prince. It's now become much riskier. From the early days of his presidency, Trump and his foreign policy team embraced the kingdom and Mohammed bin Salman as the anchors of their entire Middle East strategy. From Iran and Iraq to Syria, Yemen and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the administration gambled that Saudi Arabia, effectively run by the prince, could credibly lead, and willingly pay for, a "Pax Arabica" in a part of the world from which Trump is keen to disengage. For nearly two years, through an ongoing crisis with Qatar and international outrage over civilian casualties in...

Added: 17.10.2018 4:48 | 14 views | 0 comments

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Tuesday insulted adult-film actress Stormy Daniels by calling her "Horseface," the latest example in his long-standing pattern of attempting to undercut female adversaries with jabs at their physical appearance. Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti, a possible 2020 presidential contender who has aggressively criticized Trump, responded with mocking references to Trump's genitals and accused him of hating women.
