Jamal Khashoggi, a Turkish journalist who wrote for the Washington post was brutally murdered on Saudi Arabian soil due to his criticism of Saudi Arabia. The fact that it was within there jurisdiction to deal with Khashoggi as they saw fit may or may not play a role in the debate. President Trump has publicly stated that he is not satisfied with the murder of Khashoggi but has not taken any further action towards this tragic death. Saudi Arabia is an important ally of the united states and we need them as well as they need us. I do not believe that we should of cut ties with Saudi Arabia but I do believe the president could have done a better job of communicating with Saudi Arabia about the death as well made it clear it is not okay to take someone's life no matter where they are a citizen.
