WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the subsequent cover-up by Saudi Arabia was “a total fiasco.”

“There should have never been an execution or a cover-up, because it should have never happened,” Trump told reporters.

“I would say it was a total fiasco from day one,” he added.
