Donald Trump says the Saudi crown prince is doing a ‘spectacular job’ – video
Donald Trump has praised Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, saying he was doing a “spectacular job” as the pair met on the sidelines of the G20 summit.
“You have done a spectacular job,” Trump told the powerful crown prince on Saturday, calling him “a friend of mine”.
The young royal has faced international pressure after the US-based dissident Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul last year.
