Trump Saudi visit aims to build new relationship

"It wasn't the Iraqis, it was Saudi - take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents."Shared interestsSo what has changed since then?"

In Europe especially, they want to know whether Trump will pull out of the Paris climate accord and want to test his true feelings for Russian Federation, which is seen as a threat in much of Europe. What sorts of "deliverables" will Trump come away with during this trip and will he defer to the leaders he's meeting with or be persuaded by their arguments?

President Donald Trump accompanied by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, left, calls on a member of the media during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Thursday, May 18, 2017, in Washington.

The travel may also help shape Trump's attitude toward other key aides traveling with him who have been a source of frustration to the embattled president: Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Press Secretary Sean Spicer and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

In a statement after this meeting, bin Salman's senior advisor's statement touched on the various topics discussed, which included an expansion of economic cooperation, an agreement that Trump's travel ban was justified and was not a "Muslim ban", and the two leaders' agreement on "the same views on the gravity of the Iranian expansionist moves in the region". The first is a massive arms sale worth as much as $300 billion over a decade.

Trump will be visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, Brussels and Sicily. The U.S.is already doing what it probably can to crush it through force.

So far, in his interactions with world leaders, Trump has softened from more absolutist positions he had coming in: the shift on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, not tearing up NAFTA, deciding China isn't a currency manipulator after all, to name a few.

"We will work with our allies, particularly United States, to see that Iran is made to act like a normal country", Jubeir said. Although Trump didn't explicitly endorse his opponent Marine Le Pen, he clearly had an affinity for her nationalist ideas and she an affinity for his.

Unfortunately, this approach carries risks, including the prospect of undermining the nuclear deal or of creating a wider regional conflict.

Iran, which holds a presidential election on Friday pitting moderate incumbent Hassan Rouhani against hardline jurist Ebrahim Raisi, is likely to loom large over Sunday┬┤s summit, analysts said.

The capital's wide avenues are lined with Saudi and.

Also reported by local news organizations to be attending are President Fuad Masum of Iraq, President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt, President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of Pakistan.

He added that the most important message, which would be highlighted during the US-Arab-Islamic summit, was that religion had nothing to do with terrorism, and that all religions repudiate the heinous actions perpetrated by terrorist groups.

In Saudi Arabia, people with knowledge of the planning for Trump's trip say the caterers are planning to offer the president steak and ketchup alongside the lamb and hefty portions of rice on the menu.

Following these two stops, he will make his way to Italy to meet with Pope Francis.
