Schiff: Trump ‘Commonly Makes Common Cause with Autocrats All Over the World and Ignores’ Human Rights Violations

‘This is an illustration of how much human rights have fallen off the agenda of the Trump Administration’

EXCERPT:

CAMEROTA: "Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is about to give a foreign policy speech in Cairo. And CNN has hysr obtained a copy of his prepared remarks. And he is expected to praise Saudi Arabia as a stabilizing force in the Middle East, but will not denounce the Saudi crown prince for his involvement in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. What are your thoughts knowing that?"
SCHIFF: "Well, this is again an illustration of how much human rights have completely  fallen off the agenda of the Trump administration. It is simply not a priority and quite the contrary, this administration commonly makes common cause with autocrats all over the world and ignores or downplays or diminishes the significance of any human rights violation. And we of course see that in the premeditated murder of Jamal Khashoggi.”
