"People saw him go in and didn't see him come out". It's a very bad situation. "We can not let this happen, to reporters, to anybody". "We have jobs, we have a lot of things happening in this country".
Once Mr. Trump has determined "whether a foreign person is responsible for an extrajudicial killing, torture, or other gross violation of internationally recognized human rights against an individual exercising freedom of expression", according to the letter, he must report to the committee within 120 days with a decision on the imposition of retaliatory sanctions. "I have to abide by whatever the courts decide", he said.
Saudi officials denied the allegations, saying the well-known opposition journalist left the building through another exit.
National security adviser John Bolton and senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, talked with Salman on Tuesday, while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a follow-up call with the Saudi leader to reiterate the US demand for information about the case, the White House said.
Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also spoke to Salman in a "follow up call" that sought to "reiterate the United States request for information".
He also questioned assertions by Saudi authorities that the consulate does not have footage of Khashoggi leaving the building as the mission's security cameras only provide live footage and do not record images. Robin Wright, a scholar at the Wilson Center think tank and close friend of the missing writer, said that's unlikely to change.
Trump was briefly asked about the disappearance at the White House on Tuesday. "If Donald Trump is not getting in touch with the king of Saudi Arabia, he is being derelict in his duty....(Trump's) statements, so far, have been completely inadequate".

The Saudi consulate referred Reuters to authorities in Riyadh who have not responded to questions about the 15 Saudis, who arrived in the city hours before Khashoggi disappeared on October 2.
Turkish security sources on Wednesday identified eight out 15 suspects linked to Khashoggi's disappearance.
USA intelligence officials reportedly intercepted communications that the Saudis discussed a plan to lure and capture Khashoggi before his disappearance, a person familiar with the situation said in The Post.
State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino earlier insisted that the United States had no forewarning of any concrete threat to Khashoggi.
"The recent disappearance of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi suggests that he could be a victim of a gross violation of global recognized human rights", the letter said.
But when David Ignatius, one of Khashoggi's colleagues at the Washington Post, appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday morning, October 10, host Joe Scarborough-a former Florida congressman who left the GOP because of his disdain for Trump's presidency-asserted that Trump needs to be much more outspoken and proactive about Khashoggi's disappearance, noting that Khashoggi's criticism of the Saudi government "was certainly not extreme". Turkish officials have said they fear the columnist was killed on the premises.
