Trump against cancelling $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia

Seth Rollins Gets His Wish

"The kingdom's economy has an influential and vital role in the global economy, and that kingdom's economy is only affected by the global economy".

But Trump, who has frequently boasted about his business ties with the kingdom, suggested during the interview that ending USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia would not be an option, saying, "I don't want to hurt jobs".

Turkey has yet to publish any evidence of him being slain, though surveillance footage around the consulate shows a convoy of vehicles with diplomatic license plates leaving the Saudi Consulate for the consul's home in Istanbul a little under two hours after Khashoggi's arrival.

Now, President Trump is threatening "severe punishment" for Saudi Arabia if suspicions of Khashoggi's murder are confirmed - and Saudis have vowed to retaliate in kind.

However, Mr Trump added the U.S. would be "punishing itself" if it cancelled military sales to Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of Mr Khashoggi.

The statement aired on Saudi Arabian state media came after the country's stock market plunged by almost 7 per cent at one point on Sunday.

Foreign capital is key to those plans.

In disgust over Khashoggi's disappearance, some business leaders have pulled out of an investment conference later this month in Saudi Arabia.

In written responses to questions by the AP, Cengiz said Turkish authorities had not told her about any recordings and Khashoggi was officially "still missing".

As Saudi Arabia warned of possible economic retaliation of its own, Sens.

Trump said the United States competed against China, Russia and other countries for the Saudi contracts and winning it was "a tremendous order for our companies".

"I think we'd be punishing ourselves if we did that", he said.

American lawmakers in both parties have been more critical of Saudi Arabia, with several suggesting officials in the kingdom could be sanctioned if they were found to be involved in Khashoggi's disappearance and alleged killing.

Mr Trump indicated earlier this week he was reluctant to pull out of a multi-billion-dollar U.S. weapons deal with the Saudis to show White House anger if the missing journalist was killed by the Saudis.

President Trump warned the USA would inflict "severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia was behind his disappearance.

Saudi journalist and Washington Post contributor Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.

Meanwhile, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told ABC News on Sunday that US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is "intending to go" to the conference at the moment, but "will make up his mind as the week progresses and as new information surfaces".

"It's being investigated, it's being looked at very, very strongly", Trump said.

Trump made a point of visiting the kingdom on his first overseas trip as president and has touted arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

The shadow of a security guard rests atop the front door of the Saudi consulate Friday in Istanbul.
