President Donald Trump said on Fox Business News Wednesday morning that he hopes Saudi Arabia's leaders were not aware of the plan to kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi, calling it a "big factor" in how the U.S. will proceed with the planned $110 billion weapons deal with the country.
But as it stands, Trump is opposed to shutting down the deal, saying it will only hurt America:
"Who are we hurting? It's 500,000 jobs. It will be ultimately $110 billion, the biggest order in the history of our country from an outside military. And I said 'We're gonna turn that down? Why would we do that?'"
