Trump: I raised Khashoggi killing with Saudi crown prince

Published

“I did mention it to him very strongly,” Trump said. “That was a bad event.”

Trump said he was told by the prince that at least 13 people are being prosecuted over the death, which the president said was a “horrible” event.

“A lot of people are being prosecuted and they are taking it very seriously,” Trump said.

Trump’s comments was said to have come during a press conference at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Japan.

The president said that he was “extremely angry and very unhappy” about Khashoggi’s killing, but claimed that “nobody has directly pointed a finger” at bin Salman.

The CIA and a UN report implicated bin Salman in Khashoggi’s murder, accusing him of authorizing the killing.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was critical of bin Salman and the Saudi government, was killed by Saudi operatives in October after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
