Donald Trump: US 'very tough' in bid to find missing Jamal Khashoggi

Report: U.S. Knew of Saudi Plan to Capture WaPo Columnist, Failed to Stop It

"Well, I have to find out who did it, but people saw him go in...but they didn't see come out, as they understand it and we're going to take a very serious look at it".

A man holds a poster of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a protest organized by members of the Turkish-Arabic Media Association at the entrance to Saudi Arabia's consulate on October 8, 2018 in Istanbul, Turkey. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also spoke with the crown prince "to reiterate the United States request for information", Sanders said. It has offered no evidence to support its claim the writer simply walked out of its consulate and vanished despite his fiancée waiting outside for him.

United States officials have not confirmed Turkish claims that Khashoggi, a United States resident and one of the more outspoken critics of the regime of King Salman and his son Prince Mohammed, had been lured to the consulate and murdered by a team of 15 government operatives sent by Riyadh to Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia has described the allegation as unfounded, but has offered no proof that Khashoggi left the consulate alive, nor has Turkey produced evidence that he was killed inside the diplomatic outpost. "So, everything we did to Putin, I want to do to Saudi Arabia".

"This took place in Turkey and to the best of our knowledge, Khashoggi is not a United States citizen", Trump added, brushing aside the fact that the journalist lived in the US.

Turkish authorities say Mr Khashoggi was killed.

Corker said that sanctions could "absolutely" target Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an interview that followed.

A detailed Washington Post report cites flight data and security camera footage surrounding the incident.

Ramaphosa said Nene wrote to him on Tuesday requesting to step down‚ and he had chose to accede to the request. It had received a battering under Mr Zuma's presidency.

Mr Hunt urged the Saudi Government to co-operate fully with the Turkish investigation into the case, and to provide further information as soon as possible. But Trump has often talked down to Saudi officials by asserting that the U.S.is "protecting" them, therefore they need to pay more money in exchange for this protection.

"What has reportedly happened in Turkey around the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government", Branson said in a statement.

The White House said Wednesday top Trump administration officials have spoken to Salman about the mysterious disappearance of Khashoggi.

"Well, I think that would be hurting us", he said.

But in his first extensive remarks about Khashoggi's case, Trump warned it is "a very sad situation". "And frankly, I think that that would be a very, very tough pill to swallow for our country".

"Saudi Arabia has never been a bastion for press freedom", Radsch said, but added that Trump's repeated cries of "fake news" and "enemy of the people" have made life risky for reporters around the globe. Trump brought Kushner their in his first foreign visit as president, won Saudi support for his push to leave the Iran deal, pushed for low oil prices.

"We have got to send a signal early on that going around killing journalists is totally inappropriate and if he (MBS) has been involved there's got to be sanctions".

He had entered a Saudi consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul to get marriage paperwork as his fiancee waited outside and hasn't been seen since.

Erdogan told reporters on a flight back from Hungary that Turkey is anxious about the Khashoggi's disappearance.

Nevertheless, the Post's report raises questions about what duty US intelligence agencies may have had to warn Khashoggi that he was in danger, if they did know of a plot to capture him. "Our expectation is that in making your determination you will consider any relevant information, including with respect to the highest ranking officials in the Government of Saudi Arabia", the letter stated.
