Donald Trump vows ‘severe punishment’ if Saudi Arabia murdered journalist

A security guard looks out of the entrance of the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 12

The Washington Post reported in recent days that the Turkish government informed USA officials it was in possession of video recordings that prove Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate, but have not made them public.

Turkish officials say they fear a team of Saudi agents killed and dismembered Khashoggi, and they have released surveillance footage of the alleged perpetrators and mysterious movements outside the consulate on October 2, the day he entered. In addition to the United States dollars 110 billion arms deal, Trump said the Saudis are going to invest $450 billion in the U.S. through their companies.

Turkey believes he was murdered inside the building by a 15-person "assassination squad", with the government saying it has video and audio evidence proving he was killed at the consulate.

No details of the conversation were released.

The newspaper said Khashoggi turned on the recording function of his smartwatch before walking into the consulate on October 2.

"There's something - you'll be surprised to hear me say that, there's something really bad and disgusting about that if that was the case, so we're going to have to see".

He said that allegations about orders to murder Khashoggi were "lies" targeting the government, according to the official Saudi Press Agency. The AP has not been able to confirm that report. Turkish authorities suspect he was killed.

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

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi vanished after visiting the building earlier this month, and simmering global suspicion puts the Saudi government behind his murder. He hasn't been seen since, though his fiancee was waiting outside.

This news has coincided with a massive WWE event that is set to take place on 2 November in Saudi Arabia.

Rubio said Mnuchin should not attend the Riyadh conference. He added, "We all want information, so let's wait and see what information comes out in the next week ..."

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

A Saudi delegation arrived in Turkey for talks, officials said on Friday, with the case risking fragile relations between the two.

The source said the Kingdom's government and its people are steadfast, glorious as ever, no matter whatever the pressures and circumstances might be.

And this was the reason for him to make the first overseas trip to Saudi Arabia previous year, he said.

Cengiz didn't respond to a question about that, but earlier on Friday she urged Trump on Twitter to use his clout to find out what happened.

Trump also said on Saturday that he would meet with Khashoggi's family.

President Donald Trump has said that he will go ahead with the $110 billion arms deal his administration negotiated with the Arab nation.
