Trump said that the slaying of the Saudi Arabian journalist has "been heavily investigated" and he suggested that pledges by U.S. ally Saudi Arabia to spend billions of dollars buying USA military equipment is more important to him because of the economic impact and jobs than finding out what happened to Khashoggi.
The probe by the UN's expert on extrajudicial killings, Agnes Callamard, called on the global community to impose tougher sanctions on Saudi officials - including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's effective ruler - and for both the United Nations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to launch criminal investigations into the slaying. A kill squad of Saudi agents carried out the operation, cutting the journalists body into pieces with a bone saw.
In an interview broadcast on NBC on Sunday, Trump said Khashoggi's killing has been "heavily investigated".
Khashoggi's writings criticized the Saudi royal family.
The report called for further investigations into the Crown Prince whose assassins are heard describing Khashoggi as a "sacrificial lamb".
In defending America's continued partnership with the Saudis, Trump claimed in the NBC interview that the country is "a big buyer" of United States products.
Trump made the remarks in a wide-ranging interview aired on Sunday with NBC News' Meet the Press. Khashoggi had been living in the USA at the time of his death.

The White House said that United States president Donald Trump had been informed that they were monitoring the situation. An anonymous U.S. official later told news agencies that a USA naval drone was downed over worldwide airspace.
Trump said Saudi Arabia was no worse than other countries in West Asia, calling it a "vicious, hostile place".
USA intelligence agencies previously had concluded that the crown prince ordered that Khashoggi be killed when he went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2 to pick up documents to marry his Turkish fiancee.
In fact Saudi Arabia previous year signed "letters of offer and acceptance" for $14.5bn in military purchases from the US. That means something to me.
"Rep their money. Rep their money", Trump said. "It's a big producer of jobs".
"We're going to protect Saudi Arabia", he said. Riyadh initially denied any knowledge of the incident, but Saudi officials later claimed that a group of rogue operators, many of whom belong to the Saudi crown prince's inner circle, were responsible for the journalist's death.
Todd asked whether Saudi Arabia had paid the right price for the U.S. to essentially look the other way on Khashoggi's killing.
The Senate voted last week to block an $8 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia last week, but not with a veto-proof majority. "And by the way, if they don't do business with us, you know what they do?" They'll do business with the Russians or with the Chinese.
