Donald Trump Calls Jamal Khashoggi's Death 'Worst Cover-Up Ever'

Despite these comments, Trump added that he was still waiting for all of the facts.

Trump said: "Once they thought about it, everything else they did was bad too".

Trump had previously called Saudi versions credible and sent conflicting signals on how the USA should respond, last week calling the journalist's killing "very bad" but repeatedly emphasizing that he didn't want to endanger US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Saudi investment in the US or the American alliance with the kingdom. "Somebody really messed up", Trump said Tuesday.

Khashoggi was at the Saudi diplomatic office to get documents linked to his planned marriage to Turkish citizen Hatice Cengiz.

Trump repeated the denials by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that he knew of the plot before it was carried out.

Despite those changes in the Saudis' story, the Trump administration has consistently defended the US relationship with Saudi Arabia as a "strong partnership" based on "shared strategic interests", as Pompeo said.

Turkey's president suggested Tuesday that he might formally ask for the extradition of the 18 men Saudi Arabia is holding responsible for the killing of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Hunt said the British government condemned the murder of the journalist "in the strongest possible terms" and expressed concerns that his "horrific treatment was inflicted by people who work for a government with whom we have close relations".

Three weeks after the killing, the U.S.is also taking its first steps against Saudi officials, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announcing 21 Saudi "suspects" would have their USA visas revoked or be deemed ineligible for a US visa. I haven't gotten a full recap, as you know.

"I went to Saudi Arabia on the basis that they would buy hundreds of billions- many billions of dollars worth of things".

CIA Director Gina Haskell has been sent to Turkey to meet with investigators probing Khashoggi's murder, Pence said. It's a bad situation.

"The bad acts reported in recent weeks are alien to our culture and our DNA", said Olayan, the deputy chairwoman of the Olayan Financing Company.

Trump reiterating that he does not want to scrap the United States dollars 110 billion mega arms deal with Saudi Arabia and the total investment of USD450 billion from that country, but did not rule out not taking any action against the Saudis.

World leaders and human rights groups have criticised the latest Saudi version of events, however, saying their explanation lacks any credibility, as calls for an independent probe into what happened have grown louder. They've been one of the biggest investors, maybe the biggest investor, in our country.

Presume Erdogan knows more than he revealed today, and capitals know he knows more. "So many jobs. Thousands and thousands of jobs", he said.

"The ultimate number is around USD450 billion". "I think we'll have one".
