Watch: Eric Trump Praises Saudis For Journalist Murder, Says They’re ‘Our Friends’
Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump made an appearance on Fox News on Friday where he claimed that Saudi Arabia shouldn’t be held accountable for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi because they are “our friends.”
“I think it’s tough. You can’t have journalists getting murdered. The way they did it was obviously savage … God knows what actually happened in that room, but whatever happened was clearly awful,” Trump said.
“At the same time, I think we need to be honest with ourselves. As America, we face a little bit of a problem. We don’t have all that many friends in the Middle East, right? We have real problems in the Middle East and Saudi Arabia has actually been a friend to the US in many ways.”
“You cannot be executing journalists … or anybody else. You can’t be doing that. It’s behavior that’s savage ” Trump added. “At the same time, who are our friends in the Middle East? What are you going to do, take that and throw all of that away?”
