Turkey Calls for Arrest of Aides to Saudi Crown Prince in Khashoggi Killing

"A measure that says the US Saudi Arabia's crown prince is complicit in the killing of the journalist Khashoggi. What do you make of that? I have talked about this whole MBA smaller bin Salman for a long time. I have since day one been a denounce Mohammed bin Salman, I lived in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia arena company there. I in congress. I worked for Saudi Arabia. I knew from day one. He was not what the media was portraying him as the great liberator of women that was nonsense. He wasn't. He allowed them to drive which half the people don't want to drive over there. Anyway, you know, have drivers. But. Everything he had the media eating out of his hand expensive lobby groups making him look good. He has always been known over. There is a monster. He imprisoned his own mother under house arrest because he was warning the king who has dementia. To not let him be the crown prince think about a second. And then he imprisoned people in the Ritz Carlton extorted billions from them. And they and they killed a man in the Ritz Carlton, I think even beaten to death or something. From day one. I I really felt usually it's you know, you're innocent token, proven guilty. I felt they won behind this. And I watched Lindsey Graham and Senator corker, and they came out in no uncertain terms. They said he would be convicted in thirty minutes in court. They have seen some private secret information that I am sure has some type of followed either his voice talking some type of solid connection to ordering the murder of kashogi. And I've gotta tell you Kate. President Trump is on the wrong side of this issue. And it is straining night talked to some people on the hill today. It is super straining his entire relationship with a lot of Republicans alone over this thing they have just went too far his son-in-law Jared Kushner is best friends with Mohammed bin Salman, by the way in Saudi Arabia behind his back. They're calling him instead of 'em Bs is he likes to be called the calling him Mr. bone saw. Wow.

"Why do you think the president's behavior is what it is because it seems evident that so much of it is counterproductive for his own agenda he's alienating you he's alienating mccain is alienating corker leaning collins he's alienating a majority of the american people not the republican base but a majority of the american people i'm trying to understand that myself i've known bob corker for a long time and he's a man of integrity who stands for what he believes and i've i've been glad to see him speak out as puzzled by that as as anyone who are trying to get it agenda through congress and you need to work with the congress not just with republicans but with democrats as well and we see fits and starts of that but nothing sustained it seems and just the the tweets and the behavior that should i think be above the president's position just continues and you were not a particular supporter of president trump last year was but others such as corker were and there are not just democrats and independents out there who were not fans of the president but also some republicans they call themselves never trump republicans who are critical of people such as yourself senator corker etcetera four arriving at this conclusion today when to them the tweets and the ad rent behavior was evident back in two thousand fifteen if not before them well i like i said i didn't support him in the campaign i knew i was troubled initially years ago by his birtherism i thought that that was an ugly conspiracy theory to uh to to foist on our previous president and that was very unbecoming of anybody to to put that forward.

"Was speaking of his promises i have one more question for you about tax reform this is something that the president has said that he wants to do but he said that about repealing and replacing the affordable care act and republicans were unable to do that given the fight that's been going on with senator corker and other republican senators do you think that president trump is going to be able to get a tax overhaul through this year i think what you've touched on is one of the fundamental problems that is affecting the president to at this point in time which used the frustration that he's getting nothing done and so he's re spree acting to that frankly what he needs to understand is that his biggest problem is governing he's he's gotta be able to gover he's got to be able to work with people like senator corker and others in the congress if he's going to deliver on tax reform uh he hasn't been able to do that he doesn't have anybody in the white house who seems to have the ability to do that and so out of frustration he striking out at people and the more he does that the more he diminishes ability to to deliver on anything you were in the obama administration how much do you think what he does has to do with just dislike of president obama and tried to undo everything that president obama did well you know there's no question i think that that plays a role but if you're press in the united states you're going to be tested in history by what you accomplish not what you've torn down not the bridges that you brought down but the bridges that you have built.
