    Trump said he was not satisfied with Saudi Arabia's explanation of Jamal Khashoggi's death, but did not condemn them either.

    Trump insisted that halting an arms deal with Saudi Arabia will cost Americans a million jobs, although that number has fluctuated somewhat as he campaigns for the Republican Party before midterm congressional elections in November.
