"It was carried out poorly, and the cover-up was one of the worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups. He is holding his hand for a deal with Saudi Arabia", Jay said. Should have never been thought of.

President Trump then slammed the events following Khashoggi's death "the worst cover-up ever".

Saudi Arabia initially denied any knowledge of Khashoggi's fate, but last week said it had arrested 18 people and dismissed five officials after a preliminary investigation revealed he was killed in a fistfight at the consulate during a botched intelligence operation.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman smiled and took selfies with delegates during his 15-minute appearance on the opening day of the three-day Future Investment Initiative (FII), which is aiming to project the historically insular Gulf kingdom as a lucrative business destination.

The official said Kushner - like other members of the administration, including Trump - believes Saudi Arabia should suffer some sort of effect, but said Kushner also believes the U.S. -Saudi relationship "shouldn't be blown up" because of the Khashoggi matter.

For Saudi Arabia's allies, the burning question has been whether they believe that Prince Mohammed, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability in the killing, a possibility raised by several U.S. lawmakers. We don't know in terms of details how. But certainly, president Erdogan was not complimentary of what happened. On being asked whether he believes in the Crown Prince's defence, the American President he "really wants to".
