Saudi crown prince to visit Bahrain as part of regional tour

"I think in part he feels by saying "we don't know" or 'the world is a risky place, ' or 'everybody does it, ' he thinks it makes him look strong".

Schiff says Trump is telegraphing to despots he will have "their back" if they praise or do business with him.

Last week, in a meandering written statement, Trump vowed to remain a "steadfast partner" of Saudi Arabia, saying both Saudi King Salman and the country's de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, deny having any knowledge of the journalist's killing.

The Washington Post reported earlier this month that the Central Intelligence Agency had determined MBS ordered Khashoggi's assassination.

King Hamad added that Saudi Arabia will continue its leading global role to maintain regional and worldwide peace and security under the wise leadership of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and the Crown Prince. Earlier this week, Trump told reporters that oil prices would "go through the roof" if not for his relationship with Saudi Arabia, according to CNBC.

"Look, the president is not being honest with the country about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", said Democratic congressman Adam Schiff on CNN's State of the Union programme.

"The Saudi officials we are sanctioning were involved in the abhorrent killing of Jamal Khashoggi".

The honey is super exclusive - every year, Camilla puts just 500 jars of it on sale in super posh shop Fortnum and Mason. But that seems to all be in the past, as the Duchess only has kind words to say about the royal family.

Senator Ben Sasse, a frequent Trump critic, criticized Trump's stance on Khashoggi's killing as weak.

Almost 100 Egyptian journalists have announced their rejection of the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to Cairo.

"I do think we need to look into this further", Republican Senator Joni Ernst said on CNN.

"At such a time when it becomes necessary, the president also needs to speak directly to the Saudis and say enough's enough, " Ernst said.

The United States on November 15 imposed economic sanctions on 17 Saudi officials for their role in the killing of Khashoggi and senators from both major USA parties introduced legislation that would suspend weapon sales to Saudi Arabia over Khashoggi and for its role in Yemen's civil war. (The crown prince) contributed to murdering somebody overseas, and it is not strength to sort of mumble past that. "Strength is telling the truth even when it's hard".

"Now you don't have to be the Central Intelligence Agency to put things together and say how could this have happened without the prince being involved", King said Sunday on the CBS News program "Face the Nation". "But the fact is ... they create tremendous wealth, really tremendous jobs in their purchases and very importantly, they keep the oil price down".

MBS is also expected to participate in the G20 Summit in Argentina at the end of the month, which will be attended by leaders from the United States, Turkey and other European countries.
