Trump has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and is under worldwide and domestic pressure to help determine what happened to Khashoggi and punish Saudi Arabia if investigations show its government had him killed.
As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.
"It's being investigated. It's being looked at very, very strongly". Trump is facing growing coercion from the U.S. opposition parties, who are calling for strict actions against Riyadh.
The president said the Saudis vehemently denied any involvement when Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, directly asked Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about the incident.
Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and has not been seen since.
Separately, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke to Khashoggi's fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, who accompanied him to the Saudi consulate, the State Department said Friday.
The writer, who has written critically about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, vanished after going into the consulate on October 2.
Justin Trudeau says Canada has been and continues to be clear and strong with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia about defending human rights.
Pro-government publication Sabah claimed that Turkish officials have an audio recording of the alleged killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi when he walked into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul 11 days ago.
"There's a lot at stake, a lot at stake. I think we have to stand up to them and have to say that the current behaviour is unacceptable".
Amid growing concern over Khashoggi's fate, French President Emmanuel Macron said the country wanted to know "the whole truth" about the writer's disappearance, calling the early details about the case "very worrying".
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said: "This is a brazen assault on the freedom of the press and a slap in the face to the United States, if this murder occurred as it seems it did".
In London, Turkey's Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that Turkish and Saudi officials have been talking, but that Saudi Arabia had not yet allowed Turkish prosecutors and investigators to examine inside the consulate.
Mr. Trump said the USA will be "very upset and angry" if Saudi Arabia is responsible, noting that targeting a journalist is "something really bad and disgusting". "He told me to alert the Turkish authorities if I did not hear from him soon".
