After showing his strong support to the monarchy of Saudi and its crown price, president Trump is facing harsh criticism from Turkey's foreign minister over the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the president is following materialistic goals instead of supporting human values.

Trump has strongly believed that the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman has no involvement in the killing of the journalist, supporting his stance with the CIA latest report.

"They have feelings certain ways. I have the report, they have not concluded, I don't know if anyone's going to be able to conclude the crown prince did it," Mr. Trump told reporters in Florida.

"But whether he did or whether he didn't, he denies it vehemently. His father denies it, the king, vehemently," he added.

The president has repeatedly stressed the importance of Saudi Arabia to the US following the killing, calling the kingdom a "steadfast partner" that has agreed to invest "a record amount of money" in the US.

The US has sanctioned 17 Saudi individuals after the journalist's killing; while Several other European countries have taken action against Saudi Arabia following Khashoggi's murder, including Germany, France, Denmark, and Finland.
