Trump went to Riyadh like peddler: Iran's Velayati

The use of that terminology appears to be something of a compromise: During the presidential campaign, Trump criticized President Obama for refusing to utter the words "radical Islamic terrorism" - a phrase Obama said would alienate the Muslim allies that the United States most needs to combat terrorism.

The fact that Trump, just like a peddler, tours the epicenter of the Muslim world to collect money to revive the United States bankrupt economy is an example of US-favored version of Islam, he said. "Anyone who can not condemn the hatred, oppression and violence of radical Islam lacks the moral clarity to serve as our president", he said.

While addressing the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority countries on Sunday afternoon in his first speech on a foreign soil, Trump, called on the Middle-eastern countries to combat the crisis of Islamic extremism emanating from the region.

In a statement following the meeting, Trump addressed his meetings the previous day with Arab and Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia, and said that there is growing realization that they share a "common cause with you" in their determination to defeat extremism and deter "the threat posed by Iran".

Trump reminded the leaders during his speech of the beauty and potential that the Middle East region holds for the whole world.

In March, the US President declared that finding a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is maybe not as hard as people have thought. He called for a "joint effort" between the US and Muslim-majority countries to end terrorism.

"Frankly, look, we're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country", he told Fox Business Network last March following a series of attacks in Brussels. The trip ends on Saturday after visits to the Vatican, Brussels and Sicily. They have borne the brunt of the killings and the worst of the destruction in this wave of fanatical violence. Reuters noted that during his campaign, Trump suggested that Saudi Arabia may be behind the September 11 attack.

Ivanka And Melania Wear Headscarf To Meet Pope
He is now flying on to Brussels for a summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation , the Western military alliance. Melania and Ivanka respected the Vatican clothing and wore back dressed as well as veils.

"For decades, Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror", Trump said during his speech yesterday in Saudi Arabia. "Hillary must return all money from such countries!"

"She doesn't have the look, she doesn't have the stamina", Trump said during a debate in September 2016.

Over the course of a visit to Germany in April, Ivanka Trump has come up with an initiative to establish a fund, which, in particular, will issue loans to women engaged in business activity in the Middle East. To reconcile those "America first" policies with his attempts to build global coalitions, Trump promised that USA foreign policy would be guided by what he called "principled realism".

While Israeli officials cheered Trump's election, some are now wary of the tougher line he has taken on settlements: urging restraint but not calling for a full halt to construction.

Palestinians, who viewed Trump's victory with some trepidation, are said to have been pleasantly surprised by Trump's openness during a recent meeting with Abbas in Washington. "It wasn't the Iraqis, it was Saudi - take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents", he demanded. I said she doesn't have the stamina. While King Salman appeared happy to greet the visitors, a Trump tweet from 2015 suggested he would be offended.

CNBC anchor Becky Quick attempted to point out that Saudi Arabia bans all political protests, but Ross did not let that spoil his good mood.
