JPMorgan, Ford heads pull out of Saudi conference

President Donald Trump has said Saudi Arabia could face "severe punishment" if it was proven it was involved in Khashoggi's disappearance.

Saudia Arabia is allegedly lining up a takeover bid for Manchester United as the kingdom faces global scrutiny over the disappearance of a Saudi journalist. He was undertaking a flurry of engagements with top officials in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. Mr Trump told reporters outside the White House as he headed to Florida to review hurricane damage.

Mr Trump said he did not "want to get" into King Salman's mind, but said: "It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers".

Prince Mohammed, 33, a son of King Salman, consolidated his control in June 2017 when he was named Crown Prince to replace his cousin, Mohammed Nayef, who was sacked.

SAUDI KING THANKS PRESIDENT ERDOĞANA delegation of Saudi officials sent to Turkey to join their Turkish counterparts to find out what happened to Khashoggi spent hours at Istanbul Police Department Headquarters on Vatan Boulevard. He was joined on the plane by David Hale, the under secretary for political affairs, and Tim Lenderking, a deputy assistant secretary for Arabian Gulf affairs, among others.

But a Turkish diplomatic source said it was expected that the search, a joint operation with Saudi authorities, would "take place towards the evening" Monday. "Certainly our involvement in Yemen with Saudi Arabia will be affected", said Flake, R-Ariz. And on Sunday, Britain, France and Germany released a joint statement expressing "grave concern" about Khashoggi's case and calling for a "credible investigation".

"They're finally unleashing Trump to be this master of all media", Politico's Daniel Lippman said Monday in an interview on Cheddar.

Mexico Prepares For Honduran Migrant Caravan
Guatemala has also closed migration facilities at the border crossing at Agua Caliente to prevent the entry of other Hondurans. President Donald Trump warned Honduras earlier in the day to stop the caravan or Washington would end U.S. aid to the country.

Shortly after the cleaning crew entered the Saudi consulate, a team of investigators arrived in an unmarked police vehicle to begin an inspection of the building a full 13 days after Khashoggi entered to obtain marriage documents and never reemerged.

Khashoggi wrote columns in the Washington Post that were critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

USA media outlets reported on Monday that Saudi Arabia will acknowledge Khashoggi was killed in a botched interrogation.

Before 13 October, the President of the United States, an ally which is Saudi Arabia, Donald trump promised to "severely punish" this country, if confirmed, her government's implication in the disappearance Hasong.

In Istanbul, meanwhile, investigators entered the consulate.

And he has swatted away multiple questions about whether his administration should cancel $110 billion in weapons sales to Saudi Arabia if the regime is found responsible for murdering Khashoggi.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin still plans to attend a previously scheduled Saudi conference this week to address terrorist financing, but those plans could change as the investigation progresses, said White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow. "And this is very important to get to the bottom of it".
