President Donald Trump is blasting a report that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was given a transcript of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi allegedly being tortured and killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Trump’s comments came in a Friday tweet.

“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was never given or shown a Transcript or Video of the Saudi Consulate event,” he wrote. “FAKE NEWS!”

Trump did not refer to any specific news outlet by name in his tweet.

However, ABC News reported that Pompeo heard alleged audio of Khashoggi being tortured and killed and was given a transcript of the recordings.
