Trump says U.S.-Saudi relations are "excellent," amid case of missing journalist

Friday 08:06 GMT

President Trump described the relationship between U.S. and Saudi Arabia as "excellent," despite the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who hasn't been seen since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week. Asked about the case of the missing journalist on "Fox and Friends," the president said, "Well, we're looking at it very, very seriously.

Pressed as to whether the U.S. relationship with the Saudis is in jeopardy — particularly after the Washington Post reported, according to U.S. intercepts, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered an operation to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia and detain him — Mr. Trump skirted the question.
