Trump accuses Saudi Arabia of lying on Khashoggis death

"On the other hand you cannot teach a 33-year-old crown prince that he can get away with things that have this outrageous and stupid or he will be out of control for the next 40 years".

In an interview with the Washington Post published late Saturday, Trump stepped back from his stance that Saudi Arabia's latest explanation for the death of the journalist inside their Istanbul consulate was credible, but said he remained confident in the leadership of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Our condolences go out to them.

Barring an unlikely "confession" from Prince Mohammed, Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff said Sunday, "the president is going to accept the crown prince's denials like he's accepted Mr Putin's denials and Kim Jong Un's denials".

"We have to see if financial motives are influencing the president", he said on ABC.

Reflecting worldwide skepticism over its account, a senior Saudi government official laid out a new version that contradicts previous explanations.

The Turkish leader's statement came the day after Saudi authorities conceded Khashoggi had been killed inside their diplomatic compound in Istanbul.

Britain, France and Germany on Sunday said Saudi Arabia must clarify how dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi died inside its Istanbul consulate, and its account must "be backed by facts to be considered credible".

President Erdogan earlier on Sunday said that he will make a statement on the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday during his party's group meeting at the parliament. The journalist has relatives still living in Saudi Arabia and three children who hold United States citizenship.

Saudi Arabia has been under pressure to explain what happened, having first said Mr Khashoggi was alive.

"Concerning arms exports: that is impossible under the circumstances we see", she added, noting that Germany is considering additional "reactions" to Khashoggi's death.

"Obviously there's been deception and there's been lies", he said of the shifting accounts offered by Riyadh. "But I want to get to the answer", Trump told reporters this weekend, when asked about the Saudi investigation and Riyadh's firing of officials over the incident. "Yes, I think he did it", Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN, referring to the crown prince.
