Worldwide effort set to keep Trump happy on 1st trip abroad

Just a few years back, the business relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia was pretty simple: The Americans bought oil, and the Saudis spent much of what they earned on equipment to keep the crude flowing and on planes, tanks, and missiles to protect their borders.

"When we look at Iran's policy, we don't look at personalities".

European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker reflected the cynical view of Trump's views by threatening to "break up" the United States by encouraging OH and Austin, Texas, to split from the rest of America after Trump praised British plans to leave the EU and predicted that other countries will follow Britain leaving the union.

While some Middle East leaders will likely greet Trump warmly, he could receive a far cooler reception in Europe.

Jubeir said Trump has been "very clear about the need to push back against Iran".

"It's the first of its kind", and shows that both the USA and Muslim nations are interested in dialogue and partnership, he said.

The people with knowledge of the Saudis' planning insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the sensitive details.

The desert kingdom, where he is expected to meet dozens of Muslim, Arab and regional leaders, seems an increasingly attractive launch pad for his first ever world tour.

Ahead of the weekend announcement, the administration separately informed Congress on Friday that it will sell some $500 million in precision-guided munitions to Saudi Arabia.

He stressed the need for cooperation in order the conflict in Syria, highlighting the need for Russian Federation to rein in Bashar al-Assad's regime, Iran and its agents in the region.

Religious differences have produced conflict around the world and especially in the Middle East.

The White House laid out three purposes for the trip: reaffirming United States leadership globally, building relationships with world leaders and broadcasting "a message of unity to America's friends and to the faithful of three of the world's greatest religions", said national security adviser HR McMaster. But every USA president since then signed a six-month waiver for security concerns. President Clinton went on trips, and questions about various investigations surrounding him went right along with him.

Saudi Arabia has long vied to be the Islamic world's center of influence.

"He strongly believes that it is the strength of the faith of people in these religions that will stand up and ultimately be victorious over these forces of terrorism", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said.

Trump's decision to make Saudi Arabia his first overseas stop sends a powerful message to the kingdom: the strained ties that marked U.S. -Saudi relations under President Barack Obama are over.
