Trump says Congress will be involved in US response to Khashoggi case

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday that the U.S. Congress will be involved in determining the U.S. response to the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"I'm going to have very much Congress involved in determining what to do," Trump told reporters in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Congress is controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans.
