The Video Does Not Freeze: Watch US official stumble over Saudi question

A US state department official falls silent when asked about the reason behind America’s criticism of Iranian election and its silence over lack of such democratic process in Saudi Arabia. Acting assistant secretary of state Stuart Jones, who accompanied President Donald Trump to Saudi Arabia last week, was briefing reporters on the trip’s achievements. During the visit to Saudi Arabia, Trump signed a 110-billion-dollar arms deal with the kingdom. Trump unleashed a barrage of criticism against Iran while he totally remained silent on the issue of human rights in Saudi Arabia and its deadly war on Yemen. The U-S president’s anti-Iran posture coincided with the presidential election in Iran where a huge voter turnout dominated the headlines in the mainstream media.
