Trump stopped short of accusing the Saudis of killing Khashoggi, but he said there would be "very severe" consequences if it turns out they did.
"Turkey and Saudi Arabia are looking at it very strongly and it depends if the king or crown prince knew about it, in my opinion".

Turkish sources have told Reuters the authorities have an audio recording indicating Khashoggi, a us resident who wrote columns for the WashingtonPost, was killed.
In Istanbul, Turkish investigators for a second time searched the Saudi consulate, where Khashoggi vanished, in a hunt for clues. But we'll see what happens'.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said it is a pity that Mr Khashoggi has gone missing, but that Russia can not damage relations with Saudi Arabia without hard facts.
The sudden cash windfall raised some eyebrows on Wednesday, given the ongoing investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, but United States officials denied that the swift transfer of cash between Saudi Arabia and the U.S. had anything to do with Pompeo's visit to Riyadh.
While it's true Khashoggi was drawn toward more radical streams of thought in his youth, he later moved toward a liberal, secular point of view, those who have tracked his career say.
The Saudi consul general reportedly is heard on tape saying, "Do this outside; you're going to get me in trouble".
