Trump Asks Muslim Nations To Help Wipe Out Extremism

Trump lowered his head, appearing to bow to King Salman - when receiving Saudi Arabia's highest civilian honor.

"He set the foundation for the creation of a partnership to fight extremism and terrorism and terror financing...and so overall it was an incredible success", Adel al-Jubeir said of the speech.

In his address to the Arab-Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, Trump is vowing to "strengthen America's oldest friendships, and to seek new partners in pursuit of peace".

A White House official said the deal will work to increase Saudi Arabia's defense capabilities, bolstering equipment and services in the face of extremist terrorist groups and Iran.

According to the US president, the war against that scourge is a battle between good and evil, rather than a clash of civilizations. Twice Trump used Islamic when his prepared remarks said "Islamist". But on Sunday, standing before dozens of regional leaders, he said Islam was "one of the world's great faiths".

Dana Loesch praised President Trump for calling out the killing of Christians in the Middle East and for saying "Islamic extremism". But he also made it unequivocally clear that Muslim countries have to take the lead in fighting the radicalism within. "This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it". "This is a battle between good and evil", the US President added. He implored Muslim leaders to aggressively fight extremists: "Drive them out of your places of worship".

Twitter founder and co-creator of Blogger Evan Williams has publically apologised for providing tools - the micro blogging site - that might have played a role in the election of Donald Trump as United States president.

The deal, according to the Washington Post, is targeted to "support Saudi Arabia's defense needs" and include the sales of missile defense systems, ships, airborne security systems, and cybersecurity capabilities. Drive them out of your communities.

The leaked texts did not include the controversial phrase "radical Islamic terrorism".

In his first keynote speech overseas, Trump sought to redefine his relationship with the Muslim world, and focused on his desire to curb Iran's influence in the region.
