President Trump on Thursday shrugged off fears that he was sending a poor message to world leaders by standing with Saudi Arabia, after the CIA reportedly found a link between Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the apparent murder of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Trump . . . pushed back on reports that the CIA found with “high confidence” that the crown prince was involved in the plot to kill Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Saudi royal court critic who disappeared on Oct. 2 after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
