Donald Trump vows ‘severe punishment’ if Khashoggi was killed by Saudi Arabia

Mr Trump has said the fate of Mr Khashoggi was "not looking too good" and he may have been killed.

The prime minister also says Canada has "serious issues" around reports about the disappearance of USA journalist Jamal Khashoggi, although he says there is still more to learn before he'll comment further. "I don't want to lose an order like that", Mr. Trump said, referring to defense manufacturers. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

"If they don't buy it from us, they're going to buy it from Russian Federation or they're going to buy it from China", he said.

In a clip released from his "60 Minutes" interview, which will air Sunday night on CBS News, Trump says he still does not know if the journalist was killed by the Saudis.

Turkish officials now claim they have evidence that the Washington Post reporter, who has been critical of Salman, was tortured and murdered in the consulate building by a Saudi hit squad.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, top Turkish authorities have told US news organizations that they believe Khashoggi was assassinated at the consulate on orders from Saudi Arabia's royal court.

There was already mounting concern over civilian deaths caused by a Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen's civil war and some have said Washington should block military sales to Riyadh if the allegations over Mr Khashoggi are proven.

There is suspicion he may have been killed for criticising the kingdom's Crown Prince and de facto ruler, Mohammed bin Salman.

Under Trump, the US has continued to back a Saudi bombing campaign against Houthi rebels in neighboring Yemen that's killed thousands of civilians, providing American logistical support and weapons. "We're being very tough and we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey and Saudi Arabia".

The Turkish investigation into the case revealed recordings made on Khashoggi's Apple watch, which purportedly indicated he was tortured and killed, according to a report in the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah on Saturday, which emerged after a delegation from Saudi Arabia arrived in Turkey for a joint investigation into his disappearance.

"As of this moment, they deny it vehemently". Could it be them?

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".

"Boeing, Lockheed, Raytheon, all these com". "I don't want to hurt jobs", he said. "If it turns out to be as bad as it might be, there are certainly other ways of handling the situation". "To use a word that's a pretty harsh word but it's true", Trump said.

Mr Khashoggi's disappearance sparked global comdemnation.

"Far from the speculation, work is being carried out in the most sensitive way to find out what happened", he said in televised comments.
