President Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner met Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Tuesday for the first time since the assassination of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. A White House statement on Kushner’s closed-door meeting with the prince in the Saudi capital Riyadh made no mention of Khashoggi, nor of the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war in Yemen, which has sparked the world’s worst humanitarian crisis in a half-century. The White House said the talks were aimed at “increasing cooperation” between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
