Trump shows he will turn blind eye to Khashoggi killing, Turkey says

Donald Trump's comments about Jamal Khashoggi's killing show the US president will turn a blind eye to the issue no matter what investigators uncover, Turkey's foreign minister said on Friday.
On Tuesday, Trump vowed to remain a "steadfast partner" of Saudi Arabia despite saying that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may have known about the plan to murder Khashoggi last month.
Criticizing Trump's stance for putting commercial deals with Riyadh ahead of justice, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said human life should take precedence.
"This statement that Trump made also means: 'No matter what happens, I will turn a blind eye.' This is not a correct approach. Not everything is money," Cavusoglu told broadcaster CNN Turk.
