Donald Trump var tilbake i det alvorlige sporet igjen torsdag og sa Saudi-Arabia må påregne alvorlige konsekvenser hvis det har drept Jamal Khashoggi.

The president didn’t elaborate on his conclusion but he said the consequences for Saudi Arabia «will have to be very severe» if they are ultimately found responsible for Khashoggi’s death.

His remarks came as he was set to depart Joint Base Andrews for a campaign rally in Montana.

When asked if Khashoggi was dead, Trump replied: «It certainly looks that way. Very sad.»

USA distanserer seg fra Riyadh. Finansminister Steven Mnuchin varslet at han ikke kom til å dra på toppmøtet Davos in the Desert. Flere andre store selskaper har trukket seg.

Fredag morgen melder mediene at tyrkerne leter etter det parterte liket utenfor Istanbul. Det virker merkelig at saudierne ville våget å dumpe liket.
