Trump on Khashoggi case: CIA did not conclude Saudi Crown Prince responsibility
US President Donald Trump on Thursday said the CIA did not conclude that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman ordered the killing of Saudi citizen and journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Trump said media were guilty of “false reporting” on the CIA’s assessment of the Khashoggi case.
He added: “I hate the crime, I hate what’s done, I hate the cover-up. I will tell you this: the crown prince hates it more than I do.”
The US president also reiterated the importance of Saudi Arabia as an ally.
