Trump promises 'severe punishment' if Saudis killed journalist

Posted October 14, 2018

Khashoggi, a U.S. resident who writes columns for the Washington Post, disappeared on 2 October after visiting the consulate.

Turkish officials fear Khashoggi was killed and dismembered.

"If he makes a genuine contribution to the efforts to reveal what happened inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that day, I will consider accepting his invitation".

The president's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, has a relationship with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the heir to the Saudi throne.

Many have cited Khashoggi's disappearance as the reason. A number of outlets, including Bloomberg, CNN, and CNBC have said that they won't be attending the event, but Mnuchin said, "I am planning on going if more information comes out and changes".

Earlier this year WWE presented the Greatest Royal Rumble from Saudi Arabia, and in a few weeks the company is set to return to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel.

Authorities recovered the audio from Khashoggi's iPhone and his iCloud account, the newspaper said.

Soon, Turkey began leaking its suspicions to the media.

Saudi Arabian equities slumped as much as 7% Sunday on concern over possible USA measures.

Under tremendous pressure from the media and the Congress for taking some action against Saudi Arabia, after the sudden disappearance of Saudi dissident and journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey, Trump told reporters that he is trying to get at the bottom of the issue and has sought details of it from Saudi Arabia. It echoes how Russian Federation has described the men who allegedly carried out the Novichok nerve agent poisonings in Salisbury, England, in March.

Saudi Arabia dismissed allegations that it ordered his killing as "lies".

Branson, who dropped two directorships linked to Saudi tourism projects around the Red Sea, said claims about Khashoggi's disappearance would "change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government".

Asked whether he had reviewed the audio or video recordings, Trump said he has not. "If there are people who committed this, it will have heavy consequences".

What happens next is that he finishes his cardio and walks up to me asking me about my b**bs and making that kind of conversation. I got up to leave immediately only to find him blocking the way out. "I won't touch you with a barge pole.' And then he laughed".

Former foreign secretary Malcolm Rifkind called on Britain to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia.

In just two sessions the Saudi bourse, the largest in the Arab world, has shed nearly $50 billion of its capitalisation, which now stands at around $450 billion. Benchmark Brent crude is trading at around $80 a barrel, and Trump has criticized OPEC and Saudi Arabia over rising prices.

President Donald Trump has promised that Saudi Arabia would face "severe punishment" if the kingdom's leadership was behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Witt then turned to Trump's slow response to reports of Saudi involvement in Khashoggi's death.

"He said, 'See you later my darling, ' and went in", she told the AP.

She said investigators were examining his cellphones, which he had left with her.
