President Trump was asked Thursday if he believes journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead.
“It certainly looks that way to me, it’s very sad. It certainly looks that way," he said.
Trump, who briefly took questions at Andrews Air Force Base before departing for Montana, said the administration is waiting on the results of “three investigations."
“We’ll be making a statement, a very strong statement,” he said, saying that the administration will “get to the bottom” of what happened to Khashoggi.
Asked about consequences for those involved, Trump vowed it would be “very severe.”
“It’ll have to be very severe,” he said, “But we’ll see what happens.”
