Washington Post accuses Trump of 'diplomatic cleanup' over Khashoggi

Washington Post accuses Trump of 'diplomatic cleanup' over KhashoggiThe Washington Post, whose columnist Jamal Khashoggi was reported to have been killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, has accused the administration of US President Donald Trump of performing a “diplomatic cleanup operation” for Riyadh. In an editorial headlined “Why is the Trump administration cleaning up Saudi Arabia’s mess?” the paper backed calls by UN officials for an independent international commission into the disappearance of the journalist earlier this month, which has tarnished the image of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was sent to Riyadh on Tuesday, according to the administration, to press the Saudi leadership to get to the bottom of the case.
