Transcript Of Trump's Saudi Arabia Speech Reveals A New Tone Toward Muslims

Addressing the Arab-Islamic-US summit at Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh, US President Donald Trump said India was among nations that have been victims of violent terror attacks.

According to the sovereign, the ruling powers in the Islamic republic represent "the spearhead of global terrorism" and the responsibility 'before God, our people and the whole world is to stand united to face the forces of the devil and extremism wherever they are'. "Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship".

At present, Ivanka Trump holds a position of an assistant to President of the United States.

Trump's address was the centerpiece of his two-day visit to Saudi Arabia, his first stop overseas as president.

Welcoming Trump, Netanyahu said, "I also look forward to working closely with you to advance peace in our region, because you have noted so succinctly that common dangers are turning former enemies into partners".

"You are a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible", Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi told Trump at their meeting Sunday.

David Harris, chief executive officer of the American Jewish Committee, said that "President Trump's refreshing honesty is welcome and needed in describing the Islamist extremist threat that developed in the Middle East years ago, and spread across the region and around the world". "Love your shoes. Boy, those shoes", he said.

The reason for the diversion was because of exhaustion, aides reportedly said.

"Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted", Trump tweeted at the time.

Trump on Saturday signed a $110 billion defense deal with Saudi Arabia alongside Salman and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. There is damning evidence that war crimes have been committed by the Saudi-led coalition and continuing to arm Saudi Arabia fuels serious human rights violations that are causing overwhelming civilian suffering in Yemen.

The conciliatory message delivered to Saudi Arabia, a top USA ally in the region, was distinct from the antagonism previously used by Trump when speaking against Muslims.

"The unique piece of it is that every single one of them are signatories on how they're responsible and will actually prosecute the financing of terrorism, including individuals", she said.
