Trump suggests 'vicious world' should be blamed for Khashoggi murder while disputing Saudi responsibilityDonald Trump has suggested “maybe the world” should be held accountable for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, as he doubled down on his insistence the CIA had not concluded Saudi Arabia’s crown prince was responsible for the killing. Speaking to reporters after delivering a Thanksgiving Day message to troops deployed to Afghanistan, the president again denied the country’s pre-eminent intelligence agency believed the powerful Mohammed bin Salman was behind last month’s murder. Mr Trump spoke after the Washington Post reported last week the CIA had concluded the crown prince ordered the assassination of journalist the 59-year-old journalist, who went missing after entering a consulate in Turkey to prepare for a trip to Saudi Arabia to get married.
