"Maybe the world should be held accountable because the world is a vicious place," US President Donald Trump told journalists after his Thanksgiving teleconference with the military, answering who should be held accountable for Khashoggi's murder.
According to Trump, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman regretted the death of the journalist stressing that "the crown prince hates it more than I do."
Khashoggi, a Washington Post journalist, who was living in a self-exile in the United States since last year, went missing after he entered a Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. After weeks of denying any knowledge about his whereabouts, Riyadh admitted that the journalist had been killed inside the consulate. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir said Khashoggi had been killed by people who criminally overstepped their authority.
