Trump Jr. retweets unsubstantiated claim on missing journalist

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump Jr. retweeted an unsubstantiated claim on Friday insinuating missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a terrorism sympathizer — a move that comes as the administration of his father, President Donald Trump, faces pressure on how to respond to the journalist’s disappearance.

Khashoggi, a former Saudi royal insider who became a critic of the country’s government, disappeared last week after he went into the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, to obtain paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancée.
Turkish authorities have said they believe Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, was killed inside the consulate, a startling allegation that is firmly denied by the Saudis.
