Even in the face of gruesome details of Jamal Khashoggi's slaying, Trump has resisted calls to cut off arms sales to the kingdom and has been reluctant to antagonize the Saudi rulers.
It was the first time a Turkish official has publicly accused Saudi officials on record of the premeditated killing of Khashoggi. The crown prince of the kingdom himself had insured that the man was pulled out alive from the consulate.
The incident has severely dented the worldwide reputation of the Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman.
The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised to reveal this on Tuesday, 23rd "the whole truth" about the murder of the journalist of saudi arabia, fell into disgrace for his critics.
Iran has closely followed the backlash faced by its regional rival Saudi Arabia over the Khashoggi murder.
In order to be successful, any legal effort requires some level of cooperation from Saudi officials, which is why USA businesses must use whatever influence they have.
At a conference in Riyadh on Wednesday, the crown prince said the killing was a "heinous crime that can not be justified" and warned against any efforts to "manipulate" the crisis and drive a wedge between Saudi Arabia and Turkey, which are regional rivals but also diplomatic and business partners.
Before Erdogan's announcement, top Turkish officials said Turkey would clarify exactly what happened to Khashoggi and a stream of leaks to national and worldwide media has increased pressure on Saudi Arabia, which is hosting a glitzy investment conference this week that many dignitaries have chose to skip because of the scandal.

It is normal and understandable that Barcelona would create opportunities when playing at home against Pablo Machin's men. The playmaker scored the team's second goal with a shot from outside the area in the 12th.
U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday that he was "not satisfied with what I've heard", regarding Khashoggi's death.
Pence, who spoke in Washington at an event hosted by The Washington Post, said whatever USA response the president decides to make will keep in mind the importance of US relations with Saudi Arabia - an alliance that he noted has been in existence since shortly after World War II.
The case has triggered an global outcry against Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia so far has not acknowledged or explained Mutreb's presence in Istanbul or the presence of a forensics and autopsy expert at the consulate before Khashoggi arrived.
Selling this policy to the USA general public, which knows little about the region, is all about shaping the conflict in an emotional way: "these people are our allies, we need the Saudis against the threat of Iran".
But he suggested responsibility lay higher up: "Well, the prince is running things over there more so at this stage".
"My call is to first and foremost Saudi Arabia's King Salman and to senior administration". He later eats dinner with his accomplice and goes back to a hotel, where footage shows him smiling and laughing.
Shortly after Trump's remarks, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the United States was revoking the visas of some Saudi officials implicated in Khashoggi's death.
While Saudi Arabia maintains no official diplomatic relations with the Zionist entity, Tel Aviv and Riyadh have been growing closer under Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
