Worry about Saudi carrying out another 9/11: Iran to Trump

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'.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I think Islam hates us.

With controversy surrounding alleged ties between his campaign and Russian Federation looming in the U.S., President Trump arriving in Saudi Arabia where he received a lavish royal welcome. It is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to destroy human life and decent people from all religions who try to protect it.

"Mr. President, we look forward to your visit".

Trump flew to Israel from Riyadh earlier in the day, on the second leg of his first overseas trip since entering office in January.

Following Donald Trump's first foreign trip over the weekend, which began in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf state along with the United Arab Emirates are poised to donate $100m to the World Bank fund.

Trump received a warm welcome from Arab leaders, who set aside his campaign rhetoric about Muslims and focused on his desire to crack down on Iran's influence in the region, a commitment they found wanting in his predecessor Barack Obama. "The Iranian regime represents the tip of the spear of global terrorism". The speech was Trump's answer to one President Obama gave in 2009 in Cairo, a speech that Trump and many Republicans criticized mightily.

"Trump emollient (relatively) words about Islam will not erase memory of his rabid anti-Muslim remarks", he said.

Israel's enemies aren't only in the Arab world; just last week the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said there's a strong ant-Israel bias at and the United Nations and the body has become the main instrument for attempts to undermine the Jewish State. Among the agreements was an arms deal worth nearly $110 billion with Saudi Arabia, described as the largest in USA history.

"However, the president should have demanded that Muslim leaders and religious leaders should likewise condemn and delegitimize these terrorist groups by name".

Tillerson was responding to whether he agreed with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley that the holiest site in Judaism is part of Israel, according to pool reports.

"We have before us a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region and to its people", Mr Trump said upon his arrival in Tel Aviv. "They need USA leadership. we are a unifying effort here".

Reports have also emerged that Trump called Comey "a nut job" and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified a senior White House official as a "significant person of interest" in its probe of Russian meddling.
