American pastor Andrew Brunson returned to US after nearly two years of imprisonment in Turkey.
He met with Trump at the White House today.
Pastor Brunson kneels and prays with Trump.
After the prayer, Trump says, "Can I ask you one question? Who did you vote for?"
P.S. He didn't vote. He was incarcerated.
REPORTER: Do you think Turkey releasing Brunson had anything to do with the murder of Khashoggi in Turkey?
TRUMP: No. It's a coincidence.
Asked if he'd punish Saudi for apparently killing Khashoggi, Trump again cites arms purchases:
"I worked hard to get the order for the military, $110b, I believe it's largest order ever made. It's 450k jobs. Almost all states are involved."
Trump and Pompeo both suggest it's too early to conclude that Saudi Arabia murdered Khashoggi, despite fact he entered Saudi consulate and never exited.
“They deny it. They deny it every way you can imagine,” Trump says on “60 Minutes” on Saudis’ role in Khashoggi’s disappearance.
This feels like Helsinki redux.
US intel says one thing, Trump goes with vehement denials of a foreign power instead.
John Brennan: "If [Jamal Khashoggi] is found to be dead at the hands of the Saudi government, his demise cannot go unanswered — by the Trump administration, by Congress or by the world community."
