Trump backs Saudi Arabia despite killing of journalist
US President Donald Trump said the CIA had never made a determination about who killed the Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi. Trump was questioned at the White House about his decision not to further punish Saudi Arabia for the death of the US-based columnist for The Washington Post, who has been critical of the kingdom. He said oil prices would skyrocket if the US made a terrible mistake to break with Saudi Arabia. Trump said he was only focused on putting America first. Trump stands with Saudi Arabia and defends crown prince over Khashoggi.
