Biden meets with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
Karah Rucker: YOU’RE TAKING A LOOK AT PRESIDENT BIDEN — FIST-BUMPING SAUDI ARABIAN CROWN PRINCE, MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN.
THIS MOMENT, SHOCKING MUCH OF THE U-S.
FOR ONE THING, IT WAS JUST LAST YEAR THAT U-S INTELLIGENCE REVEALED BIN SALMAN LIKELY APPROVED THE 20-18 KILLING OF AMERICAN JOURNALIST JAMAL KHASHOGGI.
BIDEN HAS NOT SAID WHETHER HE WOULD BRING THE KILLING UP DURING THIS VISIT TO SAUDI ARABIA.
EARLIER IN THE DAY — BIDEN VISITED THE WEST BANK.
HE RE-EMPHASIZED HIS SUPPORT FOR A TWO-STATE SOLUTION BETWEEN ISRAEL AND PALESTINE -BUT ACKNOWLEDGED PEACE MAY STILL BE FAR OFF.
Joe Biden: “We cannot allow the hopelessness to steal away the future that so many have worked toward for so long. So even if the ground is not ripe at this moment to restart negotiations, the United States and my administration will not give up on trying to bring the Palestinians and Israelis and both sides closer together.”}
