Trump Humiliates Saudi Arabia but Bin Salman Says "Loves Working with Him"!

  • Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

"We protect Saudi Arabia", Trump said to cheers at a rally in Southaven, Mississippi.

"It would likely trigger a diplomatic crisis with Turkey as well as play into a narrative in (Washington) DC that views Saudi Arabia under MBS as prone to seemingly reckless gambits with little apparent thought for the consequences, be it the blockade of Qatar, the detention of Saad Hariri, the rupture with Canada, to say nothing of the war in Yemen".

And on November 4, a vast anti-corruption campaign got off the ground.

Saudi officials have said that he left shortly afterwards but his fiancée, who was waiting outside, said he never appeared.

"We hope it will end as soon as possible. The consulate officials can not save themselves by simply saying "he has left", Erdogan told a news conference in Budapest, where he is on an official visit.

President Trump said on Tuesday that he warned Saudi Arabia's King Salman he would not last in power "for two weeks" without the backing of the USA military. That would bring the PIF's contribution to the two funds to US$90 billion, he said. "I do not like it", he told reporters at the White House.

Khashoggi, who has been missing since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, had been banned from writing in the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper following his defence of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Riyadh has blacklisted as a terror organisation. He said that senior state officials have been in communication with Riyadh.

"We are ready to welcome the Turkish government to go and search our premises", he said, which is Saudi sovereign territory. Between those stints, he was a media adviser to Prince Turki al-Faisal, the Saudi ambassador to the U.K. and then the United States.

"Turkey will claim this was an affront to their sovereignty and Saudi Arabia will point to the Turkish-Qatari alliance as an explanation for Turkey's accusations", she said.

Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund is estimating an influx of Dollars 170 billion over the next three to four years after selling its stake in Saudi Basic Industries and from the upcoming IPO os the state-owned Saudi Aramco.

"The entries and exits from the consulate are. all being investigated now and being followed and all departures and arrivals from the airport are all being followed and our police force is controlling them and at the same time various units of our police chasing it", he said.

A friend of Khashoggi's said officials told him to "make your funeral preparations". On Sunday, the Saudi Press Agency released a statement, quoting an official at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, who "strongly denounced these baseless allegations, and expressed his doubt that they came from Turkish officials that are informed of the investigation or are authorized to comment on the issue".

Earlier on Saturday Turkish officials said prosecutors had begun investigating Khashoggi's disappearance and a spokesman for President Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party said authorities would uncover his whereabouts.

James Dorsey, an expert in worldwide affairs, said that the critic's disappearance could lead to a "significant deterioration" in relations between Ankara and Riyadh.
