Trump ‘not satisfied’ with Saudis but will he pressure Riyadh?

US President Donald Trump says there have clearly been “deception and lies” about how Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed.

He says he is not satisfied, and that he won’t be until he finds answers.

He has cast doubt on Saudi Arabia’s explanations, which have changed several times since Khashoggi disappeared on October 2.

Trump has been criticised for defending the kingdom and refusing to give up lucrative arms sales to Riyadh worth billions of dollars.

But do his arguments about Saudi arms deals convince anyone?

And will he put pressure on Riyadh?
