  • Jamal Khashoggi was barred from writing and making public appearances by the Saudi royal family after he criticized President Donald Trump in late 2016.

 

Wonder if Trump ordered the hit?

 

If not I wonder if Trump was consulted by the Saudis before the hit.

 

What did Trump know, and when did he know it?

How and why can we speak against one who spoke out against a dictatorial leader who is willing to kill his political opponents? No comparison. Evil dictators are exposed as to who they are...and so are evil supporters of evil dictators!  Evil is exposed! Who do you believe?

Kashoggi Banned From Saudi After Critcizing Trump

Jamal Khashoggi was barred from writing in Saudi Arabia after he criticized Trump, then left his native country

 

  • Jamal Khashoggi was barred from writing and making public appearances by the Saudi royal family after he criticized President Donald Trump in late 2016.
  • Khashoggi went into self-imposed exile not long after the ban so he could continue reporting.
  • Khashoggi became a US resident and wrote for The Washington Post, continuing to criticize the kingdom's policies from afar.
  • Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
  • Trump on Tuesday issued a forceful defense of the Saudis over Khashoggi's killing, sparking widespread condemnation.

 

Khashoggi considered himself a patriot, rejecting the term dissident, but he was often critical of the Saudi government in his reporting.

 

But Saudi Arabia's government actually barred him from appearing in media there after he criticized President Donald Trump in late 2016, according to the US State Department.

Khashoggi had criticized Trump's stance and rhetoric on the Middle East in an appearance at a Washington, DC, think tank.

 

"The expectation that 'Trump as president' will be starkly different from 'Trump as candidate' is a false hope at best," Khashoggi said at the time.

 

Khashoggi left his native country roughly six months after the ban in June 2017, which also prohibited him from making TV appearances and attending conferences. He became a US resident — splitting time between Virginia, Istanbul, and London — and wrote columns for The Washington Post.

 

From a 2017 State Department report on Saudi Arabia human rights:

 

"Well-known Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi said he moved to the United States in 'self-exile' and 'could face arrest upon returning home' due to his writing. He claimed his column in Saudi newspaper al-Hayat had been cancelled under political pressure. In 2016 authorities purportedly banned him from writing, appearing on television, and attending conferences as the result of remarks he made that were interpreted as criticizing the president of the United States, according to multiple media sources. Earlier, in July, authorities reportedly lifted the writing ban against him."
