Have respect for the dead, Trump

Senators asked the Trump Administration in October to investigate the death of Jamal Khashoggi. The murder of this man at the highest level is terrible and unforgiving. If the President refuses to respond to the Senate, it is disrespectful to Khashoggi and those who are grieving his murder. Democratic Senators
told the New York Times the president was in breach of the so-called Magnitsky Act, which requires a response within 120 days to requests from Senate committee leaders. But those 120 days have now passed…
What example does it lead for a country when a President and his administration refuses to
acknowledge a crime of this severeness? Mr Trump has faced criticism as he hasn’t condemned the crown prince directly. It makes me think, does he have a secret relationship with the Prince? Is there some corruption going on behind the scenes? Are they doing dirty deals? I don’t care, but at the centre of it all is the death of that poor man, Khashoggi. Rest in Peace.
