US President Donald Trump is pessimistic about the fate of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying Saturday that it is “not looking too good” and he may have been killed.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor whose writings have been critical of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has been missing since entering the country’s consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

“I think we would’ve known by now. That was our first hope, our first hope was that he was not killed, but maybe that’s not looking too good… from what we’re hearing,” Trump told journalists at the White House.
