White House senior adviser Jared Kushner met with Saudi leaders this week, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, but seems to have made no mention of the Saudis’ brutal slaying of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi last year.

From the White House read out of the meeting:

Yesterday, Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner, Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, and United States Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook returned to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and met with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Building on previous conversations, they discussed increasing cooperation between the United States and Saudi Arabia, and the Trump Administration’s efforts to facilitate peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. Additionally, they discussed ways to improve the condition of the entire region through economic investment.

President Donald Trump has refused time and time again to condemn the Saudis for the murder.
