WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday defended Saudi Arabia from what he characterized as efforts to condemn Riyadh over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi before all the facts were known, telling the Associated Press in an interview it was a case of “guilty until proven innocent.”

AP posted the comment on Twitter. No further details were immediately available.
