McCain, Rubio blast Trump for not confronting Saudi Arabia on human rights

Speaking before Arab leaders in Riyadh on Sunday, Trump urged unity in efforts to control the spread of Iranian influence.

The leaders emphasized that the summit represents a historic turning point in the relations of Arab and Muslim worlds with the United States. Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship.

Trump received a warm welcome from Arab leaders, who set aside his campaign rhetoric and focused on his desire to crack down on Iran's influence in the region, a commitment they found wanting in Obama.

"Trump must enter into dialogue with them about ways to prevent terrorists and takfiris from continuing to fuel the fire in the region and repeating the likes of the September 11 incident by their sponsors in Western countries", Zarif wrote for the website of the London-based Al Araby Al-Jadeed news network.

During the inauguration of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology, Trump touched a brightly lit globe with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Egypt's president Abdel Fatah al-Sis.

Melania Trump did not cover her hair with a scarf while on the visit.

Trump's meeting with the Russian officials came amid broader questions about his handling of a probe into ties between his campaign and Russia and just one day after he fired FBI director James Comey, who had been leading the investigation.

Rouhani, a pragmatist who won a new mandate in last week's presidential election, also dismissed a summit Trump attended at the weekend in Saudi Arabia as a "ceremonial (event) that had no political value and will bear no results". The first is the reversal of the Iran nuclear deal framework, brokered by former President Barack Obama in 2015, which calls for a restriction of Iran's nuclear capacities in exchange for significant economic incentives from the West. "That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds", Trump said. He largely kept his voice in check, reading carefully from the TelePrompter as he addressed the crowd, which remained quiet during his delivery.

"America's role reaffirmed", he concluded in another tweet. He is on a nine-day trip through the Middle East and Europe that ends on Saturday after visits to the Vatican, Brussels and Sicily.

"No president has ever visited the homelands and holy sites of the Jewish, Christian and Muslims faiths all on one trip", National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters in brighter days as he sought to usher Trump beyond the so-called Muslim ban and forward with "a message of tolerance".

Netanyahu said that U.S. The Saudi Kingdom hailed the agreement as a decisive step in forging an alliance against Iran in the Gulf region.

"Terrorists do not worship God".

"We thought it was a fantastic idea", Kim said.

"If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief and your soul will be fully condemned". On Sunday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump wants to understand how an embassy move "would impact a peace process".

US President Donald Trumps motorcade arrived at the KAAICC at around 3.20pm, welcome by King Salman.

The president then complimented el-Sissi's choice of footwear: "Love your shoes". He accused the foundation run by Bill and Hillary Clinton of corruption for accepting charitable contributions from Saudi Arabia and chastised first lady Michelle Obama for not covering her head during a visit to the Kingdom.

USA Today quoted a June 2016 Facebook posting in which 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".
