(Studio: John Berman) Live discussion held with CNN's columnist/author Max Boot & "New York Times" reporter Mark Mazzetti† about Trump & Saudi Arabia. [MAZZETTI - offers views on how Trump values his allies based on what they can provide for the US. rather than values so other countries may react to what Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman did, how there are a lot of empty promises about what Saudi Arabia may buy, that MBS is crown prince, not the king yet.] [BOOT - offer views on how Trump's foreign policy is a "value-free zone": acting as a supplicant to dictators with the Saudis needing us more than we need them, that MBS has become toxic & might be moved out of succession.]
