Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, appeared on its flagship television show The 700 Club on Monday to caution Americans against allowing the United States’ relationship with Saudi Arabia to deteriorate over Khashoggi’s death.
“For those who are screaming blood for the Saudis — look, these people are key allies,” Robertson said. While he called the faith of the Wahabists — the hardline Islamist sect to which the Saudi Royal Family belongs — “obnoxious,” he urged viewers to remember that “we’ve got an arms deal that everybody wanted a piece of…it’ll be a lot of jobs, a lot of money come to our coffers. It’s not something you want to blow up willy-nilly.”

Fox Business Network is withdrawing from an upcoming investment summit in Saudi Arabia, becoming the latest media organization to do so in the wake of the disappearance and suspected murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
“FOX Business Network has canceled its sponsorship and participation in the Future Investment Initiative conference in Saudi Arabia. We continue to seek an interview with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman," the network said in a statement to The Hill.
Several other media organizations, including The New York Times, Bloomberg, CNN, CNBC and The Financial Times, have also pulled out of the conference in recent days. A range of other organizations and corporate executives have done the same.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced Thursday that he also won't attend the conference after days of speculation.
