President Donald Trump is criticizing the mounting global condemnation of Saudi Arabia over the case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump says in an interview with The Associated Press: "Here we go again with you know you're guilty until proven innocent." He is comparing it to allegations of sexual assault leveled against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.

Trump says Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman both deny any knowledge of what happened to Khashoggi when he entered their country's consulate in Turkey earlier this month. Khashoggi, a critic of the monarchy, has not been seen since.

Trump says his earlier comments about "rogue killers" potentially being behind Khashoggi's disappearance were informed by his "feeling" of the conversation with Salman.

This story has been corrected to show that Trump said, "Here we go again with you know you're guilty until proven innocent," not "Here we go again with you're guilty until proven innocent."
