The first foreign visit of Donald Trump since becoming a President in January, was to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. There he participated in the Arab Islamic American Summit, where together with the Muslim leaders he renewed the collective pledge to confront the threat of extremism and global terrorism.
The Summit was hosted by Saudi ruler King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. Trump was welcomed warmly, despite his recent anti-Muslim actions. The US President and more than 50 leaders and representatives across the Muslim world discussed issues of security and their efforts in global fight against terrorism.
In his much anticipated speech, Trump was mild in his Muslim rhetorics and even stated that he was not there to lecture or impose the American way of life. He stressed out that the war on terrorism is not a war between different faiths. Trump even urged the Muslim leaders to take the leading role in eradicating extremism and terrorism.
