"It is 500,000 jobs, it will be ultimately $110 billion, it's the biggest order in the history of our country from an outside military, and I said we are gonna turn that down?" he added.

Le Maire said Saudi authorities needed to explain the disappearance of Khashoggi after he went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

"No, not at all", he declared.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was tortured before being decapitated inside Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul, the progovernment daily paper Yeni Safak reported on Wednesday, saying it had heard audio recordings of the incident.

Pompeo told reporters on Wednesday that "we need to make sure we are mindful" of the important business and government ties with Saudi Arabia as the USA considers next steps regarding the Khashoggi case. Trump has speculated without providing evidence that "rogue killers" could be responsible. Kavanaugh denied the allegations and was confirmed to the court.

"The [Washington] Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together". "I will not be going", he said. I don't like that.

The president told the AP on Tuesday that that description was informed by his "feeling" from his conversation with Salman and that the king did not use the term.

On Wednesday and into Thursday, investigators spent nearly nine hours searching the Saudi consul's residence, then moving on to the consulate itself about 200m (650ft) away, according to Reuters news agency.

As the Trump administration awaits results of the investigation into the fate of missing Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin tweets that he will "not be participating" in the Future Investment Initiative summit in Saudi Arabia.

Pompeo also pointed out that the USA has had a "long strategic relationship" with Saudi Arabia, and "we need to be mindful of that" in this process. Lindsey Graham of SC, turning to speak to the camera.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has promised that no one will be exempt from inquiry into Khashoggi's disappearance and has ensured a thorough probe.

The media industry in Saudi Arabia is strictly controlled by the government, which meant Khashoggi developed close ties to the country's leadership over the years. "We'll find out, we'll get down to the bottom of it", Trump said of the Saudi investigation.
