President Trump says the U.S. will remain a "steadfast partner" of Saudi Arabia, despite the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, whose image was shown on a screen at a memorial earlier this month.


Florida activists are weighing in as President Donald Trump says his administration will remain a "steadfast partner" of Saudi Arabia, despite the CIA's assessment that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally approved the killing last month of journalist and Washington Post contributing columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Hassan Shibly, Chief Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida joined us with some perspective surrounding Trump’s relationship with Saudi Arabia and how Trump's term is impacting the presidency.
