Trump promised to personally call Saudi Arabia's King Salman soon about "the awful situation in Turkey".
U.S. President Donald Trump said in a CBS interview on Saturday that there would be "severe punishment" for Saudi Arabia if it turns out that missing Saudi journalist Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. That treaty includes a Saudi intent to purchase $110 billion in arms from the U.S.
The statement aired on Saudi Arabian state media came after the country's stock market plunged by almost 7 per cent at one point on Sunday.

The statement, which was published by the PA president's office, quoted Abbas as saying he has "absolute confidence" in Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman.
Foreign capital is key to those plans.
In protest of Khashoggi's disappearance, several US businesses leaders have pulled out of next week's Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, dubbed "Davos in the Desert", after the annual meeting of world economic interests in Switzerland.
Their foreign ministers said that if anyone were found responsible they should be held accountable, and urged a detailed response from Riyadh.
Saudi Arabia has said it had nothing to do with Khashoggi's disappearance, without explaining or offering evidence of how the writer left the consulate and disappeared into Istanbul with his fiancée waiting outside.
Bahrain affirmed its "full solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against all those who attempt to undermine it or seek to harm it, stressing its strong rejection of those who attempt to harm its policy, position and sovereignty".

However, Trump in the same interview said: "As of this moment, they deny it and they deny it vehemently".
The minister added that his country was "in compliance with worldwide laws and conventions", the official Saudi Press Agency reported him as saying.
Otherwise, the USA risks losing credibility when it comes to human rights, he told CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday.
"We're gong to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment".
"I wish we would put more pressure on the government to come clean as to what happened inside that consulate", McFaul added.
Witt pointed out that Trump also has a personal interest in Saudi Arabia.
Turkish authorities believe 15 Saudi men who arrived in Istanbul on October 2 were connected to Khashoggi's disappearance and possible killing. Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition of Gulf states in a military campaign against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.
