Donald Trump arrives in Saudi Arabia

Donald Trump arrives in Saudi Arabia

Mr Sharif is among the 54 leaders who would join US President Donald Trump for the summit being held on Sunday. Though the two men have disagreed sharply about such issues as Mr. Trump's Muslim ban and the treatment of refugees, Pope Francis has reserved judgment on the American leader, saying he never speaks negatively about someone he's never met.

"Women, foreign and local, must wear an abaya (a few get away with long coats) in public places".

Mr Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer did not dispute the account, adding: "By grandstanding and politicising the investigation into Russia's actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russian Federation".

Selling weapons to Saudi Arabia means the U.S.is engaging in a proxy war in Yemen, Paul claims, even as Saudi bombing against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels is responsible for around 60 percent of the 3,799 civilian deaths in Yemen in the past 18 months.

Obama's speech in the Egyptian capital was billed as a new beginning, and "groundbreaking, transformative", for United States policy in the Middle East and toward the Muslim world, Miller says.

No president in recent memory has been as reluctant leave the country as Mr. Trump.

The revelation by The Post came just about the same time as The New York Times reported the President Donald Trump had described the sacked Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey as a "nut job" to Russian officials he met in the Oval Office last week, and told them his firing had taken the pressure off him.

Tonight, President Donald Trump began his first foreign trip as the leader of the free world, stopping off at Jeruselum, Vatican City, Brussels and Sicily. He now hopes that his eight-day, six-country journey can turn the page politically, offering him a chance to demonstrate his singular brand of deal-making diplomacy.




"I think there is a great anticipation of the president's trip as to what could be accomplished", said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is accompanying Trump for most of the trip.

Saturday night, he'll attend a royal banquet at Murabba Palace followed by a tour of the National Museum.

Ivanka Trump will travel with the president to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Italy on his upcoming foreign trip, a White House official said. Still, Jasser is anxious that the Trump Team has been talking up an "Arab NATO", because unlike many Middle Eastern nations, NATO member nations are democracies.

President Barack Obama is greeted by Ambassador Joseph W. Westphal, U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as he arrives on Air Force One at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Wednesday, April 20, 2016.

While most U.S. presidents make their first foreign trip to neighbouring Canada or Mexico, 70-year-old Trump has opted for six stops.

The Saudi welcoming ceremony for President Trump and first lady Melania Trump included flowers brought by three traditionally dressed girls.

Iran and Syria were not invited to the summit, and they are not part of a regional military alliance that Saudi Arabia is establishing to fight terrorism. In a tweet, Mr Trump said she had "insulted" her hosts. Red, white and blue lights and at times an image of the US President's face were beamed onto the front of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel where Mr Trump will be staying.

Trump also plans to deliver on his promises to boost manufacturing jobs in the United States by offering the Riyadh regime a wide range of weapons deals, Reuters reported earlier this month, citing unnamed sources within the administration.
