This despicable statement by Trump expresses not just his own corrupt views but US government policy toward Saudi Arabia despite its egregious human rights crimes—most recently the absolutely gruesome beheading & dismembering of Jamal Khashoggi—& 3 1/2 years of carpet bombing Yemen. How is it conceivable that such a government as the US is capable of humanitarian military intervention? If it vituperates & bombs like a genocidal regime, if it can publish such arrant apologetics for a murderous feudal regime, then don’t be so foolish as to impute any humanitarian impulses to it—lest you end up betraying elementary human & political solidarity with Afghans, Iraqis, Syrians, Yemenis, Libyans, Somalians, Palestinians.
