“If we abandon Saudi it would be a terrible mistake,” Trump later told reporters. He added he was “not going to destroy the economy of our country” by potentially disrupting the flow of oil from the Middle Eastern kingdom.

Trump has repeated this “pants on fire” lie innumerable times since Khashoggi’s disappearance.

“It’s a very simple equation for me,” Trump gloated. “I’m about make America great again and I’m about America first.”

Ryan was having none of it.
