Opinion: Only Donald Trump can end the Jamal Khashoggi standoff

The arguing over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi is done. Battle lines have been drawn, trenches have been dug and the man who might help smooth it over is distracted.
President Trump has a lot on his plate. His agenda dominated by domestic events: despicable hate crime murders and a spree of politically divisive pipe bombs, not to mention rapidly approaching midterm elections.
So this is hardly the moment to get drawn into a standoff in the Middle East.
