Slamming all critics, the Trump administration has come out in full support of its ally Saudi Arabia and its crown prince, who has been linked to the disappearance and possible murder of a leading dissident journalist in Turkey.

In an interview at the White House, President Donald Trump told The Associated Press: “Here we go again with you’re guilty until proven innocent.”

The AP’s report said Trump compared the accusations against Saudi Arabia, which stands accusing of killing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, to sexual assault allegations against recently confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“I don’t like that,” Trump added: “We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh, and he was innocent all the way as far as I’m concerned.”

Trump’s interview came not long after he spoke with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
