Delicacy of the Donald

Trump’s Arabian circumlocution

What the US president expressed to the Saudis, Dalrymple tells an interviewer (‘The Manchester suicide bombing and the minds of terrorists’, from 10:50), was

euphemistic, to say the least. And to be saying it in Saudi Arabia, which is much more closely concerned with terrorism in Western Europe than Iran has been, is slightly alarming.

Dalrymple is not persuaded that the Riyadh government can be regarded as separate and distinct from the Wahhabi fanatics.
