Pompeo arrives and departs Saudi Arabia's Royal Court

Trump and Saudi Arabia: Deep business ties spark new scrutiny
He has booked hotel rooms and meeting spaces to them, sold an entire floor in one of his buildings to them and, in desperate moments in his career, gotten a billionaire from the country to buy his yacht and New York's Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park.
President Donald Trump's ties to Saudi Arabia run long and deep, and he's often boasted about his business ties with the kingdom.
"I love the Saudis," Mr. Trump said when announcing his presidential run at Trump Tower in 2015. "Many are in this building."

I am so surprised a country that beheads people in public would dismember a Washington Post journalist.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s meeting with Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia lasted no more than 15 minutes, CNN estimates based on the time the top U.S. diplomat’s motorcade arrived at the royal court and departed. - Jim Sciutto, CNN

Simona said: Honey do I look Russian or Italian?
Friends, I Believe We Are Living In A Real Live Pixelated Spy Novel
Last week, in an effort to beat back accusations that she has lied about her identity, Simona Mangiante provided ABC News with a photograph of her Italian passport.
But rather than quiet widespread speculation that the wife of the former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos was perhaps not who she presented herself to be, that passport photo has now raised more questions than it has answered.

We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right? He’s scared. He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself. It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work. - Elizabeth Warren

Ted Cruz & Trump. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
Trump said he would hold a rally for Ted Cruz in Texas’ ‘Biggest Stadium’. The venue he booked is not even close. With Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facing an ongoing threat from El Paso Rep. Beto O’Rourke, President Donald Trump said in August that he would come to the Lone Star State to hold a rally for the embattled far-right senator.
