WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is still planning to attend an upcoming summit in Saudi Arabia despite the controversy over the disappearance of Saudi journalist and political dissident Jamal Khashoggi, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Mr. Mnuchin will make up his mind as the week progresses and as new information surfaces,” Kudlow said. His comments came shortly after Florida Senator Marco Rubio told CNN’s “State of the Union” he believes Mnuchin should boycott the event.
