Trump, Lindsey Graham, and Mike Pence are some of the people responding to the claims Saudi officials murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Become a TYT member at:

“President Donald Trump’s desire to maintain strong ties to Saudi Arabia is facing its biggest test yet: allegations that Riyadh ordered the killing of a dissident Saudi journalist who had been living in the United States.

Calls are mounting for the Trump administration to find out what happened to Jamal Khashoggi. Republicans and Democrats in Congress have taken steps to force a government investigation. Khashoggi’s fiancé has pleaded for Trump to ‘help shed light on Jamal’s disappearance.’ The fury has grown after a Washington Post report that U.S. intelligence knew of Saudi plans to abduct Khashoggi, raising questions about whether the administration failed to warn the journalist.”

Ummmm, America has been working with Saudi Arabia for decades. American's are idiots, the President is only a face for the people whom only have so much pull and can be easily assassinated if their superiors see fit. Saudi Arabia is one of the richest nations and tied strongly to the Fed

samlerf · October 11, 2018 at 4:02 am

Lindsay is a monster, but he could be honest. The establishment doesn't really need Trump anymore. And let's not forget that Trump has privat Business going on with Saudi Arabia.

Joseph M · October 11, 2018 at 4:06 am

Yeah he's gonna check his bank account, excuse me his cash-account 👍 right Donny boy

nemesis7884 · October 11, 2018 at 4:16 am

saudi arabia seems to be a shit hole….maybe climate change has one positive aspect when the middle east becomes uninhabitable

Novaverse · October 11, 2018 at 4:27 am

And why would the US jump into this?

FUCKYOURGODINTHEASS · October 11, 2018 at 4:30 am

tRump won't do shit because he is a punk bitch.

RurouniStarchild · October 11, 2018 at 4:41 am

Why ask the questions to which you already know the answers?

Denys Lightbow · October 11, 2018 at 5:01 am

TYT is so unhinged! I love it!

Thi Henry · October 11, 2018 at 5:02 am

The truth and finding out stuff is not trump thing.

Ron García · October 11, 2018 at 5:04 am

This little spawn of cracker on cenk's left is having fun during this sad story of journalist's disappearance. have you any decency?

mark haas · October 11, 2018 at 5:04 am

So what dramaticly different move would your white knight, Bernie Sanders , make then? Sanctions? A stern letter to the U.N. perhaps? Bernie Sanders likes the U.N. a whole lot more than Trump does and almost every Muslim country is a member state. In fact the U.N.'s Human Rights chairman is FROM Saudi Arabia for Christsakes. TYT are friggin hypocrites.

Denys Lightbow · October 11, 2018 at 5:05 am

Chunk Yogurt and gay John are flailing desperately and pathetically.

Cory Rice · October 11, 2018 at 5:05 am

Trump administration is banking on more hurricanes to distract.

Jacob Black · October 11, 2018 at 5:07 am

Trump is gonna win again in 2020.

deenman23 · October 11, 2018 at 5:23 am

i swear tyt is pathetic beyond imagination,wtf does trump have to do with this?why didnt tyt attack obama because X happened in Y country???

Bob Nelson · October 11, 2018 at 5:32 am

Trump's reaction is what you would expect from a guy who calls the American press the "enemy of the people" over and over and over. Vote Blue. Put a check on Trump.

Bobzter · October 11, 2018 at 5:33 am

2:09 When he says "Okeyyy", I hear "see, I can act presidential, happy now?" – reminds me of when he mocks how boring is being presidential at his dumb-fest rallies.

dangerouslytalented · October 11, 2018 at 5:35 am

Trump won’t do squat. He will try to sweep it under the rug, and in return the Saudis will buy a few multimillion dollar apartments in one of his firetrap towers.

Ja 45 · October 11, 2018 at 5:41 am

Trump is runned by illuminati Israeli Saudi bitches

Lasse Saikkonen · October 11, 2018 at 5:42 am

A correction, if you will, the Skripals didn't die. One first responder did.

Beachdudeca · October 11, 2018 at 5:44 am

he is probably just hiding in Palo Alto , its going to be another DEM Hoax

soulful41 · October 11, 2018 at 5:53 am

Every time Trump lies, he crosses his arms. LOL… He was terrified of the questions that were asked by the journalists. He fact went red and he started pouting. Wow, Trump is on the edge. He looked like he just wanted to run out of there. Wow, just wow…..

richard saeed · October 11, 2018 at 5:54 am

What did Nikki Haley say about this?

hoison68 · October 11, 2018 at 6:06 am

Jake Tapper was nowhere near as smug as the fat brown buffalo and John are about an assassinated man. Hypocrites.

I. Wannabangō · October 11, 2018 at 6:21 am

Saudi government is so evil

Colin Sherritt · October 11, 2018 at 6:28 am

Typical Trump bullshit.

Satria Kurniawan Djaenal · October 11, 2018 at 6:31 am

I doubt Trump will actually do anything. This kind of tricky diplomacy is WAY beyond his capabilities…whatever little there are…

Laurette LaLiberte · October 11, 2018 at 7:04 am

Glad to see it being covered finally. Doubt ttrump will care or do anything. Might even give him ideas.

dsjoakim35 · October 11, 2018 at 7:11 am

I feel like there is only one reason the US would ever turn on Saudi Arabia. SA is about to run out of oil.

his202 class · October 11, 2018 at 7:18 am

Bezos could do a lot if he cared at all for one of his employees being murdered by a foreign state. I'm sure we'll hear nothing from him.

IronBahamut · October 11, 2018 at 7:23 am

Saudis are subhuman dogs

Dylan J · October 11, 2018 at 7:24 am

Okay so did trump want to become president just because,he wanted to be able to say that he was president when he is not in office anymore?Or was it all for fun and games for him?

A. v. K. · October 11, 2018 at 7:31 am

It is difficult to grasp that the Trump Government is fanatically afraid of islam and the religious and cultural influence by muslim immigrants, yet makes deals, accepts the sale out of real estate and businesses on American soil and allows the construction of countless mosques in the US to the world's most conservative and influential islam representatives, the Saudis. 15 of the 19 9/11-attackers have been Saudis. Is it worth to sell out a modern nation and its people just for oil? It was/is done by both sides, Republicans and Democrats. Be critical, attentive and alert all together instead bitching and hating left and right.

HnJoHSaJ NgRiNNgR · October 11, 2018 at 7:36 am

The Mandela effect

Burori1 · October 11, 2018 at 7:44 am


heavyarms55 · October 11, 2018 at 8:06 am

Are you kidding me? This isn't a Trump thing. American leadership has kissed Saudi Arabia ass for DECADES. Both Bush, Clinton and Obama all get on their knees for Saudi Arabia!

Saudi Arabia was behind 9/11. Saudi Arabia funded ISIS. Saudi Arabia is slaughtering children in Yemen. Saudi is foaming at the mouth to get us to fight Iran for them.

America wont do a damn thing about this.

Bankrupt Racing · October 11, 2018 at 8:07 am

The Deep State probably killed him to intentionally stir up shit between Trump and Saudi Arabia.

Martin Perry · October 11, 2018 at 8:17 am

Use Canada's example. Criticize the Saudi's human rights records and they'll cancel the contracts on their own.

Kong Kong · October 11, 2018 at 8:23 am

trump loves strong leaders – putin, kimungun, xijinpin, and now the sauds. i bet trump is literally having a hard-on being turned on by the news. he wish he can do the same to journalists he doesn't like

brian woodward · October 11, 2018 at 8:42 am

I know for a fact that you ban many Republicans from this site because you cannot take their critisizm. Sharia is an insidious movement. All you have to do is look at Tommy Robinson in England and other partsw of Europe. You are nothing but a pack of liars.

Saintkupo · October 11, 2018 at 8:46 am

US gov won’t do shit. Saudis did 9/11 and we didn’t wipe them off the planet. Nothing will be done for one guy.

Rod Hezarkhani · October 11, 2018 at 9:07 am

Iadorola complains about anything

Zackidoo Zacoou · October 11, 2018 at 9:08 am

Has nothing to do with oil .. Murica now make more oil than the Saudi if am not mistaken in my information. Arms deal is the new name of the game.

Raul Aguayo · October 11, 2018 at 9:17 am

Omg he's such a 5th grader trump smh lol

Islam is cancer · October 11, 2018 at 9:44 am

Why are you making this about Trump? TYT is fake news.

Elite · October 11, 2018 at 9:47 am

Wait why should the US get involved in this when it has nothing to do with us? Are we about to go full imperialist again? Is the US trying to be the world police again?

ezeblp · October 11, 2018 at 10:06 am

not our business ……….. that stuff always happens in the land of the ragheads and camel jockeys

jan morgan · October 11, 2018 at 10:06 am

Trump is completely responsible for this.
