Biden Responds to Khashoggi’s Widow Saying MBS’s Next Victim Is on Him: ‘Sorry She Feels That Way’

Democrat President Joe Biden has provoked a backlash after publicly fist-bumping with the head of the Saudi regime Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

During the 2020 election campaign trail, Biden called the Saudi regime a pariah for the killing of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi.

The Washington Post trashed Biden as did Khashoggi’s widow Hatice Cengiz.

Cengiz called Biden’s cave a betrayal and said on social media, saying: “What Jamal Khashoggi would tweet today: ‘The blood of MBS’s next victim is on your hands.'”

Biden was asked about Cengiz’s angry response during a press conference, where he said: “I’m sorry she feels that way.

“I was straightforward back then, I was straightforward today.

“This is a meeting, what I, I didn’t come here to meet the crown prince.

“I came here to meet the GCC, the nine nations, to deal with the security and the needs of the free world, particularly the United States, and not leave a vacuum here, which was happening as it has in other parts of the world.”

The Washington Post publisher and CEO Fred Ryan blasted Biden in a statement:

“The fist bump between President Biden and Mohammed bin Salman was worse than a handshake – it was shameful,” Ryan said.

“It projected a level of intimacy and comfort that delivers to MBS the unwarranted redemption he has been desperately seeking.”
