Even as Donald Trump faces impeachment, indictment and imprisonment for his growing list of felonies, another one of his scandals is closing in on him as well. Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s murder of American journalist Jamal Khashoggi isn’t going away, and in fact Khashoggi was just named one of Time Magazine’s people of the year. Now Trump and Jared Kushner have found a way to make this mess worse for them.

Donald Trump decided that now would be a good time to sit down for an interview with Reuters, and reiterate his support for Bin Salman. All that Trump is doing is tying himself to a murderer who has become radioactive on the world stage. We all know Trump is doing this because the Saudi Arabian royal family controls him financially, and Trump is therefore sticking with Bin Salman, even at the expense of the United States.

Trump isn’t the only one making this mess worse for himself. Jared Kushner, who famously never speaks, made the unprecedented move of appearing on Fox News last night to give an interview to Sean Hannity. But rather than try to distance himself from the Saudi Arabia mess, Kushner took the opportunity to promote his Middle East peace plan, which is really just a way for Bin Salman and Netanyahu to cash in on each other.

It’s becoming more clear by the hour that, for all the political and criminal trouble that Donald Trump and Jared Kushner are facing, their top priority is to keep trying to line the pockets of their overseas overlords. It couldn’t be more obvious that Trump and Kushner expect their personal financial situations to immediately collapse if they can’t finish the job with Saudi Arabia.
