Trump pessimistic about Jamal Khashoggi's fate, says 'not looking too good'

Turkey has yet to publish any evidence of him being slain, though surveillance footage around the consulate shows a convoy of vehicles with diplomatic license plates leaving the Saudi Consulate for the consul's home in Istanbul a little under two hours after Khashoggi's arrival.

A missing Saudi Arabian journalist recorded his death on an Apple Watch, according to a Turkish newspaper.

The row has intensified with the Washington Post reporting that Turkish officials have recordings made from inside the building that allegedly prove their claims Khashoggi was tortured and killed at the consulate.

An informal review process lets key policy makers use a practice known as a "hold" to stall deals if they have concerns such as whether the weapons being supplied would be used to kill civilians.

Soon, Turkey began leaking its suspicions to the media.

The kingdom will respond to any measure against it with bigger measures, the source said, adding: "The Saudi economy has vital and influential roles for the global economy". McFaul said it's important to know what the president's "interests are in Saudi Arabia and clarify whether there's a conflict of interest". It echoes how Russian Federation has described the men who allegedly carried out the Novichok nerve agent poisonings in Salisbury, England, in March.

In an interview with CBS News, Mr Trump said that, if true, the fact that a journalist was murdered was "terrible and disgusting".

Saudi Arabia has been under pressure since the disappearance with countries such as France, the USA, and Turkey demanding answers from the kingdom. "If there are people who committed this, it will have heavy consequences".

Trump said the United States competed against China, Russia and other countries for the Saudi contracts and winning it was "a tremendous order for our companies".

US senator Richard Blumenthal from WWE's home state of CT has called on WWE to "review and relook" at its relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Earlier in the week, Saudi Arabia had said it would open the consulate for a search but that is yet to happen.

MSNBC host Alex Witt asked McFaul whether-given the available information-he believes Saudi Arabia is responsible for Khashoggi's disappearance.

President Donald Trump said the United States would be punishing itself if it halted arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the suspected murder of a journalist and American resident on the kingdom's consulate in Turkey. He says if the kingdom doesn't buy its weaponry from the United States, they will buy it from Russian Federation.

Trump said that there was much at stake with Khashoggi case, "maybe especially so" because he was a reporter.

Missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi's Turkish fiancee Hatice waited outside the Saudi consulate but says he never came out.

"Well, I'll tell you what I don't want to do", he said.

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

Noting that Saturday had been Khashoggi's birthday, she said: "When your loved one leaves this world, the other world no longer seemed scary or far away".

"The kingdom rejects any threats", the Saudi Press Agency reported, citing an official it didn't identify.

"It's cumulative - the Yemen war, the dispute with Qatar, the tensions with Canada and Germany, the arrests of women activists".
