Israelis and Arabs share 'common cause' against Iran says Trump

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.

"This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations", said Trump to an audience of dozens of leaders from across the Muslim world, after signing a $110 billion weapons deal with his Saudi royal counterpart, King Salman.

Elsewhere in his comments, Qassemi recommended the regional countries to care about their people's welfare and respect their right to decide their fate instead of spending billions of dollars on attracting U.S. support. But addressing the leaders of 55 Muslim-majority countries, Trump said the meeting marked a "new chapter" that would bring lasting benefits for citizens of the USA and those of the countries being represented at the meeting.

During the president's recent visit, the US and Saudi Arabia sealed deals of between $280 billion and $380 billion, including an arms deal, which is valued at $110 billion.

According to USA Today, Donald Trump said: "Saudi Arabia and numerous countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays".

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

"I think the president's views, like we hope the American people's views, are going to continue to evolve", Tillerson said before Trump arrived in Israel for a two-day visit, the Washington Examiner reported.

Iran and Saudi Arabia have shared a relationship based on allegations, conflicts and religious competitiveness. "The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries and for their children".

"Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death", he said.

"The Iranian nation has chose to be powerful".

When President Donald Trump set his hands on a glowing orb during his first foreign trip to Saudi Arabia, social media lit up with science fiction jokes.

"The problem is that the Americans do not know our region and those who advise US officials are misleading them".

"Our missiles are for our defence and for peace, they are not offensive".
