Country leaders summit with USA president Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump was expected to underline the need to confront extremism in Islam in his speech in Saudi Arabia late yesterday.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Monday cited a lack of protests against President Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia as evidence of a "genuinely good mood" on the first leg of his foreign trip.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did not invite any USA reporters to his joint press conference with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir, just the latest in a number of Trump administration assaults on press freedom. "And if you both are willing, we're going to make a deal".

Trump has been welcomed warmly in Saudi Arabia, where he and first lady Melania Trump were given an extravagant reception by King Salman and other members of the Saudi royal family.

With this agreement, and the current strength of the US-Saudi bilateral relationship, the two countries can look forward to even more trade agreements within the year.

Without the participation of Syria and Iran, the only two Islamic countries that were not invited, Trump told its interlocutors that Washington is seeking a coalition of nations to remove extremism in the Middle East, and urged the Muslim countries to guarantee that the terrorists do not find a sanctuary on their soils'. "We believe Israel is willing".

"This groundbreaking new center represents a clear declaration that Muslim-majority countries must take the lead in combatting radicalization, and I want to express our gratitude to King Salman for this strong demonstration of leadership", Trump said.

Further, Klein said Trump should have mentioned the "refusal of much of the Muslim world to negotiate with and accept Israel as a Jewish state".

This included the largest arms deal ever made in USA history, according to the White House.

The reason for the diversion was because of exhaustion, aides reportedly said.

But Trump departed for Europe having offered no real indication of a path forward on one of the world's most intractable disputes.

And on the eve of Trump's visit, an Israeli official said Netanyahu's cabinet has approved confidence building measures with the Palestinians, including allowing building in a West Bank area.

The prime minister, who repeatedly butted heads with President Barack Obama, leapt to his feet when the president declared Tuesday that his administration "will always stand with Israel".

"Palestinians are ready to reach for peace", Trump said.

Popular Video SNL is not a fan of the Trump administration, and it shows with every new skit they produce.

During an October debate, Trump also told Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, "Saudi Arabia giving $25 million, Qatar, all of these countries".
