Host Chuck Todd brought up the murder of Khashoggi - who wrote for the Washington Post and was a USA resident when he was murdered while visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey - asking the president if he would allow the FBI to investigate the killing.
During the interview Trump revealed that he recently had "a great conversation" with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and that he did not raise the issue of the United Nationsreport that was released last week in which the world body concluded that Khashoggi's killing "constituted an extrajudicial killing for which the State of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is responsible". A kill squad of Saudi agents carried out the operation, cutting the journalists body into pieces with a bone saw.
It said there became "credible proof" that warranted extra investigation into the likely involvement of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and known as for an FBI investigation.
A report on Khashoggi's assassination published last week by the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings said the USA should open an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry and "pursue criminal prosecutions within the United States, as appropriate". "If you're going to look at Saudi Arabia, look at Iran, look at other countries", Trump said.
The CIA and Turkish authorities investigated Khashoggi's death and determined MBS personally ordered his murder. He added that the Middle East is a "vicious, hostile place" and that Iran and other countries in the region are also guilty of the type of behavior Saudi Arabia has been accused of engaging in. That means something to me.

"I'm not like a fool that says, 'We don't want to do business with them, ' " he said, when pressed about the humanitarian concerns raised against Saudi Arabia's leadership. USA intelligence agencies previously had concluded that the crown prince ordered that Khashoggi be killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, where he went to pick up documents to marry his Turkish fiancee. "It's a big producer of jobs", the president said. One Saudi official is quoted as asking whether it would "be possible to put the trunk in a bag".
Saudi leaders initially denied knowing the whereabouts of Khashoggi, but after intense global backlash, finally admitted that he had been killed inside the diplomatic facility. Trump has pledged to use his presidential veto and push on with the sales. And then you go outside the Middle East, and you take a look at what's happening with countries.
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 last week voted to block the Trump administration selling arms to Saudi Arabia, seven Republicans joining Democrats to pass the measure. Trump, however, said that the murder "really didn't come up" in their conversation.
