Fox News’ Shepard Smith on Trump Khashoggi Statement: He ‘Insulted the Murder Victim and Sided With the Saudis’

“President Trump stands with Saudi Arabia.”

Fox News’ Shepard Smith opened his show with a brief breakdown of President Donald Trump‘s stunning statement siding with Saudi Arabia while leaving it an open question of whether the crown prince was involved in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

And as Smith said, “Today the President insulted the murder victim and sided with the Saudis who said our CIA is wrong.”

Smith has previously blasted the lacking U.S. response to Khashoggi’s assassination and the too-cozy relationship the U.S. has had with Saudi Arabia, and today he knocked Trump’s “lengthy missive, riddled with presidential exclamation points.”

He noted that despite Trump’s “maybe” game on whether the crown prince ordered the assassination, the CIA has reportedly concluded he was clearly involved.
