Saudi Arabia warned Sunday it will respond to any "threats" against it as its stock market plunged following President Donald Trump's warning of "severe punishment" over the disappearance of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi.

There's now a hold on the munitions kits America wants to send the Saudis and both Republicans and Democrats told CNN they're not really interested in moving forward with the planned sale anytime soon. The U.S. has called for an investigation. "There's just no good explanation and I think they know it".

"I believe the Trump administration will do something, the president has said that", Rubio told CNN's State of the Union. There's much more accountability with private companies than there are with governments when it comes to responding to bad press.
