President Donald Trump said Thursday that relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia are “excellent,” but that it would be a “very sad thing” if it turns out they did murder Washington Post contributer Jamal Khashoggi.

“That would be a very sad thing and we’ll probably know in the very short future,” Trump said during a call to Fox and Friends. “We have incredible people and incredible talent working on it. We don’t like it. I don’t like it. No good.”
