BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday that he spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia regarding the mysterious disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Ankara.
“Just spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of whatever may havae happened ‘to our Saudi Arabian citizen,'” Trump began.
“Hesaid that they are working closely with Turkey to find answer. I am immediately sending our Secretary of State to meet with King!”
