Trump’s fondness for dictators enables them to kill people because they know he won’t do anything about it. Trump will make excuses for the Saudis no matter what the truth turns out to be.
Putin: He didn't do it
Porter: He didn't do it
Moore: He didn't do it
Kavanaugh: He didn't do it
MBS: He didn't do it

Trump's line about the strength of the Saudi king's denial is very reminiscent of how he would repeat Putin's claims about Russia's election interference https://t.co/nWsHvpLy34

King Salman denies it.
Vladimir Putin denies it.
Roy Moore denies it.
Brett Kavanaugh denies it.
In the President’s world, the truth doesn’t matter. Admission is weakness. Denial is everything. The more vehement the better. But don’t ask Trump.
He denies it. https://t.co/bBjYduvggI
