Trump said the killing and subsequent cover-up by Saudi Arabia were "a total fiasco."

"There should have never been an execution or a cover-up, because it should have never happened," Trump told reporters.

He said he had spoken on Monday with the crown prince who denied having anything to do with Khashoggi's killing.

"Bad deal, should have never been thought of. Somebody really messed up. And they had the worst cover-up ever," Trump told reporters at the White House.
