Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman last week for the first time since Saudi agents killed dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October of last year.
The two men have a close relationship that dates back to the early days of the Trump administration. Kushner has been a vocal advocate for bin Salman within the White House even after the American intelligence community determined he ordered agents to kill Khashoggi.
David D. Kirkpatrick, international correspondent for the New York Times, gives context on this relationship and what it means for U.S. foreign policy.
