Trey Gowdy: President Biden should expect some scrutiny after his recent Middle East trip

And that was arguably not the toughest issue the president faced in Saudi Arabia, the toughest issue may have been navigating America’s need for Saudi Arabia as an ally against Iran, while also bringing up the reality that our intelligence community believes Saudi Arabia ordered the murder and subsequent dismembering of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi

This is the same Iran, of course, who sides with Russia, supplies terrorist groups around the world and oh, by the way, wants to assassinate current or former U.S. government officials in retaliation for killing one of their own generals who happened to be a terrorist.

And that’s exactly what President Biden is getting.
