Listen: President Trump, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabian Government discussed on Ben Shapiro
"Sure. Okay. So good Trump side. I have to acknowledge that the president did quote tweet me this morning, which is kind of fun. So he watched my final Sunday special on Fox News. Any tweeted out the only way to shut down the Democrats new mob who strategy to stop them called at the ballot box. The fight for America's future is never over. Then shapira. Thank you, Mr President. I appreciate that's good. Trump other good Trump. He said some interesting things on sixty minutes. And when he talked about the Democrats not wanting the country to heal. This obviously was practitioners President Trump going after the Democrats. He is not wrong about this considering that Elizabeth Warren today is doing the everybody hates you, Mr. Trump, and my native American ancestry is real and Hillary saying no civility for publicans and all the rest here is President Trump talking about Democrats wanting to divide the country, we need to be healed. We need to do think they want to heal yet. I'll be. Hillary Clinton made a really nasty statement. I don't think they wanna be healed. I do want to know. So I agree that the Democrats don't want the country to heal. I'm not sure the President Trump is the most healing president. But we will count this in the category of good Trump in the category of bad from here is president from talking about Saudi Arabia. So he has made a couple of comments what he said on sixty minutes was not bad, but Saudi Arabia is in meshed in a massive scandal right now because there's this guy named Jamal Khashoggi and Jamal Khashoggi was a person who wrote op EDS for the Washington Post. He was a longtime retainer of the Saudi Royal family and a critic of the regime he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul Turkey on October second seeking documents relevant to divorce. The Turkish government claims that they have proof that a Saudi hit squad murdered him inside the consulate chops his body up. And then dispatched the remains in a black man to a private plane headed for Saudi Arabia. There's not a lot of Shoghi is dead. At this point. This is created worldwide consternation against the Saudi government, and in particular against prince Mohammad bin Sultan was considered the new leader of Saudi Arabia. The new dictator of Saudi Arabia. A few comments are necessary on this. Understand what's going on. Exactly. Our number one. Saudi Arabia is h radical dictatorship led by people who are dictators is a monarchy they chop people's hands off regularly. They imprison dissidents, they're not a human rights friendly country. Mohammed bin Sultan was supposed to be a reformer. But even as a reformer. He's still the dictator of Saudi Arabia. This is not a supremely shocking story on any level other than we know the name of the guy who has disappeared as opposed to presumably many other people whose names, we don't know who've been disappeared second. The Turkish government has a pretty strong interest in trying to humiliate the Saudis because the Turkish government has basically been anti-saudi for years. They're in bed with uranium government at this point, and to a certain extent in bed with the Syrian government is well all of that said the Turkish government releasing evidence in an attempt to make it look like they are friends Erdo on who's the leader of Turkey also in Islamic thug who has imprisoned dissidents and killed this too. So there are no good guys in this part of the. At least not in leadership positions in any case. The call for the United States to distance itself from the Saudi Arabian government after all of this. I think is appropriate. But I think it's also appropriate to note that the outsized consternation with regard to Shoghi which outside. I don't mean that it's appropriate. It's totally appropriate. But when compared to the amount of consternation over Turkey imprisoning, thousands of people and until a minute ago imprisoning, a US pastor or Syria, murdering half million people or Iran pursuing terrorism across the region. It's it is amazing how the human brain has the capacity to hone in on a single incidence of evil in a way that it doesn't on literally hundreds of thousands of incidents of evil. But with all of that said, the United States does have to do something if the Saudi Arabian government is calling dissidents back to consulates, and then murdering them that's not that that is that is a bad thing. Here's President Trump on sixty minutes talking about it. He changed his tune a little bit today they arose during military equipment everybody in. The world one of that order Russia wanted it China wanted it we wanted it. We got it. So would you cut that online? What I don't wanna do Boeing Lockheed Raytheon all these. I don't want to hurt jobs. I don't want to lose an order like that. There are other ways of punishing to use a word. That's a pretty harsh word. But true. Okay. So when he says that he wants to maintain certain economic ties, that's not great Trump. Right. He needs to actually be exerting pressure on the Saudis for four. Now, he has to do that carefully. Because he also doesn't want to give a lot of leeway leverage to the Iranians who our enemies with the Saudi regime and have been fighting a proxy war in Yemen with the Saudis, and again, there are no good guys in this particular area of the world. But with that said. The president ought to be signaling some pretty harsh rhetoric. With regard to the situation is not that one files under bad Trump today. He said that the Saudi Arabian government denies it. They say that it's not real. So we're just going to ignore it. That is not great stuff from the president. Okay. Other stuff. The president said during the sixty minutes interview here is some other bad Trump. Here's President Trump on Kim Jong Hoon the dictator another evil dictator, and he has more and more informed. Do love that guy. Luck."
