By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Saudi Arabia has thrown a monkey wrench into the Trump visit.
It seems that Sudanese President Omar al Bashir has been invited to the meeting with Trump and 50 Muslim leaders from the Middle East, Africa and Asia scheduled for this coming Sunday.
Al Bashir is wanted by the International Court for Human Rights in the Hague for war crimes, mass murder and massacres in Darfur during the civil war there.
It will be a major problem for US President Trump to speak to and be greeted by a group that includes a war criminal.
Trump cannot be present in the same room as al Bashir. I look forward to seeing how this plays out.
Will the Saudis un-invite al Bashir or will President Trump demure and back out of the meeting? My money is on dumping al Bashir.
