Biden Resets Relationship with Saudi Arabia

Nothing says “let’s be allies” like crapping all over the guy who runs the country.

The Biden administration has said it expects Saudi Arabia to “change its approach” to the US and signalled that it wants to minimise any direct contact between the president and the country’s de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

 

The stance marks an abrupt change compared with the Trump administration, which showered the young heir with attention and praise. It comes as intelligence officials are preparing to release – possibly as early as next week – a declassified report to Congress that will describe its assessment of the crown prince’s alleged culpability in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the US-based Washington Post journalist who was killed by Saudi officials in 2018.

The White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, this week said Joe Biden intended to “recalibrate” the US relationship with Saudi Arabia, and considered King Salman – not Prince Mohammed – to be his counterpart. While the designation might technically be true, the 35-year-old prince is widely seen as running Saudi Arabia and has direct relations with other foreign leaders.

    “the US relationship with Saudi Arabia, and considered King Salman – not Prince Mohammed – to be his counterpart. While the designation might technically be true, the 35-year-old prince is widely seen as running Saudi Arabia and has direct relations with other foreign leaders.”
    Just like in the United States. Senile Joe is not running the US but instead his fake doctor wife, Harris, Bernie, AOC and their ilk are running the US.

    Biden is clueless.

    Is he trying to destroy peace process that Trump started?

    If so, that makes him an agent of war and evil.

    Biden is reversing the “other guys “ policy of pissing off allies and cuddling up to Putin ,, Kim and his no talent son in law’s buddies who chop up journalists and carry them out of embassies in suitcases .

    Shockingly , he’s polling 15 points higher than “the other guy “ ever did in his 4 years of perfect decision making and decorum .
