MojNews- U.S. President Donald Trump has become an unwavering ally of the main perpetrators of the brutal murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the eight months since it occurred, the newspaper said Monday.
"Mr. Trump has become steadfast champion of the royal court that sent a team of killers to murder Khashoggi," the Washington Post's editorial board said in an op-ed.
"The premeditated murder of a contributing columnist who believed in democracy does not concern him, but the care and feeding of the dictatorial kingdom that sent the killers gets his lavish attention and slavish devotion. What does the United States get in return? Complicity in a criminal war in Yemen, and an indelible stain on its moral record," the board added.
The scathing write-up follows last week's publication of UN Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard 's report on Khashoggi's murder in which she determined it was an “extrajudicial killing for which the State of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is responsible”.
