President Donald Trump says his administration will continue to stand by Saudi Arabia in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi's death.
Trump said in a statement Tuesday "the crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one" and that the U.S. doesn't condone it.
But he added we may never know all the facts surrounding the killing and said the U.S. "intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia."
The CIA reportedly believes the Saudi government at its highest levels was involved — namely Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. But Trump has been hesitant to blame Salman.
According to CNN, Trump is expected to get a CIA assessment on Khashoggi's death later on Tuesday.
