State Secretary Mike Pompeo told reporters Wednesday the murder was “heinous” and said there was no intelligence linking bin Salman to the Murder.
Bin Salman’s playful nature with Macron seemed later to rub onto Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, caught in another clip as a grinning ear-to-ear, while Saudi leaders gained a strong high.
Pictures of the couple sitting next to each other at the Argentina summit showed them clear agreement – and laughter – about something.
