Saudi, UAE pledge US$100 million to Ivanka Trump womens' fund

26 Mai 2017

During his Middle East tour, Trump signed military deals worth almost $110 billion with Saudi Arabia and urged Arab leaders to join hands to "isolate Iran" for its financial and military support for "terrorists and militias", to quote his words.

Arriving from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Trump expressed his hope for cooperation among USA allies in the Middle East. Israel was his second stop on a nine-day tour aimed to test the waters for reviving the dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace process. "These are people that push gays off buildings", he said. "But we hope that if Rouhani wanted to change Iran's relationship with the rest of the world those are the things that he could do". Trump has threatened to try to renegotiate the deal.

On Monday, Rouhani, however, said that Iran will continue to test its missiles anytime if there is a "technical need", and it will not seek the permission of any other country to do so. "When they attacked Afghanistan (and) Iraq, when they made sanctions against Iran".

On Monday Trump arrived in Israel, where he again singled out Iran.

Mr Netanyahu said he hoped an Israeli prime minister could soon make the same flight. "They should have polling stations in place for the people and let the rulers not be on a hereditary basis". Regarding the crisis in Syria, he reiterated that Tehran believes that it must be solved by peaceful means, and cited as an example that along with with Russian Federation and Turkey they are cooperating to re-establish the cease-fire in order to create a quiet situation for the Syrian people.

The Sunni kingdom and Shiite power Iran haven't had diplomatic relations since early 2016.

"He said "Islamic extremism" to Saudi Arabia's face", The Blaze host noted, adding that overall Trump conveyed a message that the "spine" has returned to American foreign policy.

"It wasn't the Iraqis, it was Saudi - take at look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents", he said.

CNN reported that Trump had not gotten much sleep during the first stint of his foreign trip.

"And he could not have been clearer in his description of Hezbollah and Hamas as the terrorist groups they most assuredly are", Harris also said. "Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?"

During Trump's first stop on his four-nation tour, the Saudis pledged to spend billions on infrastructure projects in the USA and military equipment but the arms deal has raised red flags in Israel.

Rohani also defended Iran's ballistic-missile program, which has been heavily criticized by the Trump administration. And then they gave me two enormous bushels of dates, as a present, as a thank you for the trip that we had had.
