Speaking on Islam, will Trump hit reset with Muslims?

President Donald Trump meets officials at the Royal Terminal of King Khalid International Airport.

"America cannot solve all of the world's problems, but we can and we must help any nation willing to join in the common cause of eradicating terrorism from the face of the earth", Trump said.

The first U.S. lady, Melania Trump, will not be forced to dress conservatively in Saudi Arabia, the first stop of her husband's tour in the Middle East and Europe.

President Donald Trump has touched down in Saudi Arabia as he begins his first trip overseas since taking office.

Trump can expect a warm reception when he arrives 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 Russian Federation extends to a current senior White House official.

Several jets then flew overhead leaving a red, white and blue trail.

On his Saudi trip, Trump has said he will ask Muslim leaders "to fight hatred and extremism and embrace a peaceful future for their faith".

Trump Says 'There is No Collusion' With Russia
The Associated Press reported that House Speaker Paul Ryan supported the thorough and independent investigation. But why Rosenstein's briefing needed to happen in a room designed for classified briefings is still unclear.

PM Nawaz was invited by Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to attend the Arab Islamic American Summit, where he is likely to meet other important leaders who will be attending the conference, including President Trump. It says that it's "Great to be in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia" and says Trump is "Looking forward to the afternoon and evening ahead". No modern president has attempted such an ambitious debut on the world stage, and Trump's itinerary - which also includes a two-day visit to Israel, an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican, and participation in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and G7 summits - is being carefully choreographed to present Trump as a confident commander-in-chief.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told reporters on Air Force One that Trump spent the flight meeting with staff, working on his upcoming speech to the Muslim world and getting a little sleep.

Melania Trump's decision not to wear a headscarf upon arrival in the Middle East is drawing attention on social media. Trump and the first lady will dine with the Netanyahus Monday night.

Unlike predecessor, Barack Obama, Mr Trump is not expected to highlight human rights during his trip.

In a further sign of respect to Trump, the king traveled with him in a large motorcade from the airport to the Ritz Hotel, the first non-Trump-branded property that the president has stayed at since taking office. During meetings this weekend, Trump will work to develop relationships with the leaders, with whom the United States hopes to partner on fighting extremism. The agreement will provide tanks, ships, and missile defense systems to the kingdom in an attempt to bolster its regional military prowess. "He was crazy.a real nut job".

In this early version of the speech, Trump urges Arab leaders to drive out terrorists from places of worship. The draft notably refrains from mentioning democracy and human rights - topics Arab leaders often view as USA moralizing - in favor of the more limited goals of peace and stability.

The eight-day tour, including four countries in the Middle East and Europe, comes hours after Mr Trump said he was the victim of the "greatest political witch-hunt in USA history".
