Trump: Congress to be involved in Khashoggi response

By Michael Hernandez

WASHINGTON (AA) – U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday Congress "will be very much involved" in formulating the U.S. response to the case of missing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump told reporters in Arizona that lawmakers "indirectly and directly" will influence the U.S. response after he earlier warned against calls from some lawmakers to suspend arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

"I'm gonna have very much Congress involved in determining what to do," he said. "I will very much listen to what Congress has to say."

Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. He has not been seen or heard from since.
