Trump unsatisfied with Saudi Arabia's explanations over journalist

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that he is unsatisfied with Saudi Arabia's explanations of what happened to missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but he does not want to lose investment from Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia on Saturday confirmed the death of Khashoggi, who has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. U.S. lawmakers have been sceptical about Riyadh's shifting explanations, and comments from Trump and the White House have varied. [nL8N1X24DL]
