US President Donald Trump is seeking to rebuild relations with the Muslim world on his first foreign trip starting Saturday in Saudi Arabia as political scandals mount at home. Trump along side dozens of works leaders are attending the US-Arab Summit in Riyadh aimed at combating extremism and to fight terrorism.
Trump and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud stop for coffee following Trump’s arrival in Riyadh. He received a warm reception upon arrival in the oil-rich kingdom for talks with King Salman, but the domestic mood was grim following news that the FBI’s investigation into his campaign’s ties with Russia extends to a current senior White House official.
Meanwhile, from Saudi Arabia, Trump will visit other countries in middle east and Europe. He will be in Brussels for EU-US Summit and will see with the NATO SG before heading to Italy for the G7 Summit.
