Еще very soon.» Reporters: [Overlapping questions] Donald Trump, US President: «No I haven't, I mean I have spoken to him many times about this, but I haven't called him yet.

Trump said that he had not yet seen the video and audio evidence of Khashoggi's reported killing. He went on to say that there would be a «severe» punishment if the journalist, a Washington Post columnist, was found to have been murdered by Saudis. «I will be also calling King Salman of Saudi Arabia, because I think it is appropriate for me to ask him what is going on», the president confirmed. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo added that he would be looking into whether or not the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would still be travelling to Saudi Arabia for a finance event in the wake of the Khashoggi case.
