Trump's Saudi Statement: Missing The Real Message (Liberty Report)

Should we punish the Saudis or not over the killing of Khashoggi? Is this really the only choice being offered? That is what the mainstream media and Washington politicos and pundits would have us believe. As usual they are wrong. In this special Liberty Report we lay out how a real "America First" foreign policy would react to Saudi actions.

Ron Paul advocates, as usual, for a withdrawal from partnerships involving bad actors. He sees no reason to be involved in Middle Eastern affairs preferring a focus on US domestic activity.

The clip points out that Trump's statements on the Saudi assassination issue were layered with criticisms of Iran and excuses for the genocide in Yemen - echoing neocon foreign policy talking points.
