Donald Trump calls for help in tackling 'Islamic extremism'

Zarif Hits back at Trump: Foreign Policy or Simply Milking Saudi of $480B?

However, Melania and Ivanka are not the only women, who did not cover their hair upon arrival in the conservative Islamic kingdom, as former USA state secretary Hillary Clinton, former first lady Laura Bush, British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had also not covered their hair in Saudi Arabia.

Trump's Riyadh visit kicked off his first presidential trip overseas, with Saudi Arabia the first stop on a nine-day journey through the Middle East and Europe.

Zarif indicated that Trump had during his Saudi Arabia visit milked his hosts of hundreds of billions of dollars in business deals.

On his maiden foreign tour since taking office in January, Trump is already showing signs of fatigue from a packed schedule.

President Donald Trump, who is visiting Saudi Arabia to attend world Islamic conference in Riyadh, is accompanied by wife Melania Trump, daughter Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.

Terming the fight against terrorism as a "battle between good and evil", and not a clash between "the West and Islam", Trump sought to chart a new course for America's role in the region - aimed at rooting out terrorism.

His speech came on the second day of his first trip overseas as president.

Despite his incendiary comments, or perhaps because of them, Trump is now extending a proverbial olive branch to Muslim leaders, saying Sunday that "this is not a battle between different faiths". "Instead, we are here to offer partnership - based on shared interests and values", Trump said during his speech.

Without naming Pakistan, the US President said "every nation has an absolute duty to ensure that terrorists find no quarter on their soil".

Trump added that Muslim leaders must do more to confront extremism.

"Drive them out! Drive them out of your places of worship". But he briefly referred to his upcoming meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Leaders in the Gulf are also eager to hear Trump's plan for combating what they regard as Iran's destabilizing presence in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.

"The people of Iran have endured hardship and despair due to their leaders reckless pursuit of conflict and terror".

"Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate it. and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they so richly deserve".

There was no evidence of fiery-candidate Trump during Sunday's speech.

He notably refrained from using the phrase "radical Islamic terror", which had been a staple of campaign speeches and which he had chided predecessor Barack Obama for refusing to utter.

Neither Melania nor Ivanka Trump have worn headscarves during the visit, following the tradition of other presidential spouses who visited Saudi Arabia.

Trump is the first US president to choose a Muslim-majority nation for his first stop overseas, and his aides have said the decision was meant to rebut notions that Trump is anti-Muslim.

The speech in a gilded hall bedecked with chandeliers is part of an effort to redefine his relationship with the Muslim world.

Yousef Al Otaiba, the UAE's ambassador to the United States, said in a statement that his country's donation shows "our commitment to empowering women in our region and builds on the progress we have made in our country, where women play a role in every segment of society".

Trump told Macron he is under "heavy" pressure back in the USA on the climate accord brokered by the Obama administration in 2015. Cohn also said "His basis for decision ultimately is going to be what's best for the United States,".

Trump has fueled the Russian Federation controversy by firing the man who was originally leading the Russian Federation probe, FBI Director James Comey, in an apparent bid to stop the investigation.
