President Donald Trump said Thursday the U.S. has investigators in Turkey trying to determine what happened to Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, last seen entering Riyadh’s consulate in Istanbul last week, but acknowledged his life is imperiled.
“He went in and didn’t come out,” Trump told the Fox & Friends news talk show. “It certainly doesn’t look like he’s around.”
Turkish officials say they believe that Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who wrote opinion articles for The Washington Post, was murdered inside the consulate last week by a team of 15 Saudi agents who flew into Istanbul, a contention Saudi Arabia has called “baseless.”
