Donald Trump has made believing in the most suspect of sources over his own reliable people a habit. He’s made a routine of openly believing and “befriending” Russian president Vladimir Putin and siding with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un on controversial topics.

Most recently, he sided with the Korean leader over the death of U.S. university student Otto Warmbier, stating that Kim Jong Un did not know about the torture of the 22-year-old former prisoner that left him in a coma for a year, which ultimately led to his death.

“I don’t believe he would have allowed that to happen. It just wasn’t to his advantage to allow that to happen,” Trump said at a press conference last month in Hanoi, Vietnam, following a summit with Kim. Both parties were astonished by the president’s response. “This is the conundrum of Donald Trump for many of us who like his policies and don’t like a lot of the things he does and says,” former Pennsylvania Congressman Rick Santorum told CNN. “But, this is reprehensible, what he just did. He gave cover, as you said, to a leader who knew very well what was going on with Otto Warmbier. And again, I don’t understand why the president does this. I am disappointed, to say the least, that he did it.”

Even his National Security Advisor, Michael Bolton, has distanced himself from the president over these comments. “I give my advice to the president,” he said. “I give my opinions to the president. He makes up his own mind. That’s why he’s president.”

And of course, there is Trump’s refusal to condemn Saudi Arabia’s Prince Muhammed Bin Salman over the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi last fall. Despite evidence from the CIA that ties prince Muhammed Bin Salman to the hired hit on the former U.S. resident, the State Department does not link the prince to the killing.

The administration has refrained from incriminating the prince, citing inadequate evidence. “We’re going to hold the government of Saudi Arabia to its promise that it will do a thorough investigation and find all of the facts,” Ambassador Michael Kozak said. “We can all have our suspicions or our speculation as to where it may lead, but our effort has been to have where it comes out be fact-driven rather than opinion-driven.”

The president has seemingly allowed money and business to take precedence over morals and ethics, naming oil prices as a big reason why he hasn’t and shouldn’t publicly denounced Ali. “Saudi Arabia, if we broke with them, I think your oil prices would go through the roof,” Trump told reporters in November. “I’ve kept them down. They’ve helped me keep them down.”

“Right now we have oil prices in great shape. I’m not going to destroy the world economy, and I’m not going to destroy the economy for our country by being foolish with Saudi Arabia,” he continued. “I think the statement was pretty obvious what I said. It’s about America First.”

An overwhelming majority of people seem to think that his approach has been incorrect. You can read more about it on the New York Post.
