President Trump said that he would be upset with the Saudi government if they were behind the disappearance and alleged death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a top critic of the government.

“It is being investigated and very strongly and we would be very upset and angry if that was the case,” Trump said in an excerpt from an interview on "60 Minutes" revealed Saturday. The full interview is expected to air on Sunday.

But Trump hedged on whether he would cancel an order for military equipment to the Saudis because of concerns about American jobs.

Bipartisan senators have expressed anger at the Saudis for their possible involvement in the death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post writer who disappeared after going into the Saudi consulate in Turkey, and have called for an investigation. U.S. intelligence reports have said that a Saudi “hit team” was sent to kill Khashoggi, according to the Post.

Trump said that the Saudi government has vehemently denied they were behind Khashoggi’s disappearance.

“They deny it every way you can imagine,” he said.

Trump said that if an investigation determines that the Saudi government was behind Khashoggi’s death, then there will be “severe punishment.”

But he hedged on whether there would be sanctions against the government.

“They are ordering military equipment. Everybody wanted that,” Trump said.

He didn’t want to cut off that order because “I don’t want to hurt jobs or lose an order like that.”
