Chris Hayes: Trump’s Has Been Colluding with Saudi Arabia To Cover Up a Brutal Murder

‘The president of the United States has been colluding with Saudi Arabia to cover up a brutal murder of a columnist to protect his own financial interests’

EXCERPT:

HAYES: “All the Russia collusion investigation news comes as there is reason to believe, or at the very least question, that the President of the United States has been colluding with Saudi Arabia to cover up and explain away a brutal murder of a 'Washington Post' columnist in order to protect his own financial interests. Take a moment to digest that. Because it is a real possibility. Donald Trump has pushed back against this very idea, insisting 'I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia.' But no one is asking about Trump's interests in Saudi Arabia. The issue, of course, is Saudi Arabian interests in Trump. And for that, you don't have to take my word for it."

TRUMP: "Saudi Arabia, and I get along great with all of them, they buy apartments from me, they spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much. (...) I love the Saudis. many are in this building. (...) Saudi Arabia — I like the Saudis. They're very nice. I make a lot of money with them. They buy all sorts of my stuff, all kinds of toys from Trump. They pay me millions and hundreds of millions."
