Saudi king slams Iran as 'spearhead of global terrorism'

In an incredible reversal from his hard line campaign rhetoric, Donald Trump has said that Muslims are the biggest victims of terrorism, in his first major speech to the Muslim world. His words aligned with the views of his Saudi Arabian hosts and sent a tough message to Tehran the day after Hassan Rouhani won a second term as Iran's president.

There were no promises of new financial investment or announcements of increased U.S. military presence in the region.

"Terrorism has spread all across the world".

He appealed to Muslim nations to ensure that "terrorists find no sanctuary on their soil" and announced an agreement with Gulf countries to fight financing for extremists.

Trump noted that Middle Eastern nations have sustained the highest number of casualties from terrorist attacks, describing it as a "tragedy of epic proportions". "Drive them out of your places of worship". Trump spoke about the devastation that violent extremists have unleashed across the Middle East, but made clear that he believes it's up to leaders of those countries to act to contain the problem. Trump said the two countries "have a wonderful relationship" but that "there has been a little strain" and vowed to improve things further.

US President Donald Trump had a brief encounter with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday before the the Arab Islamic American Summit at the King Abdulaziz Conference Center in Riyadh.

The England worldwide struck four times at King Power Stadium on Thursday evening, as Spurs defeated Leicester City 6-1. We finished in the way we wanted.

Saudi Arabia donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to the charity's website - which is, at most, one-fourth of the amount Ivanka Trump's fund will get from Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. In December 2015, Mr Trump told a campaign rally he was calling for a "total shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States "until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on".

That ban was blocked by the courts.

White House officials have said they consider Trump's visit, and his keynote address, a counterweight to President Barack Obama's debut speech to the Muslim world in 2009 in Cairo.

During his campaign, he mused, "I think Islam hates us".

"It is a government that speaks openly of mass murder", Trump said.

"Our responsibility before God and our people and the whole world is to stand united to fight the forces of evil and extremism wherever they are". "He (Trump) also emphasized the importance of working jointly to address challenges to regional peace and security, including defeating ISIS and al-Qaida, countering Iran's destabilizing activities, and resolving conflicts in Yemen and Syria", the statement said, indicating that the Trump administration was virtually outsourcing the security of the region to the Saudis.

Jordan Ayew scores first Swansea city goal on Premier League final day
Swansea capped a strong finish to the Premier League season by beating West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Sunday. Even most of the 2,500 visiting supporters joined in.

"Frankly, look, we're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country", he told Fox Business Network last March following a series of attacks in Brussels.

Before the speech, Trump held individual meetings with leaders of several nations, including Egypt and Qatar.

His meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi underscored their burgeoning kinship. The Obama administration had a hard relationship with Sisi, who came to power after leading a military coup in 2013 during which hundreds of demonstrators were killed, and has since jailed thousands of opponents.

Soon after, Trump tweeted for the first time on worldwide soil as president. "Love your shoes. Boy, those shoes", he said. Bahrain is home to the USA fleet in the Middle East. Its Sunni Muslim royal family rules over a majority Shi'ite population and was occasionally rebuked by the Obama administration for harsh treatment of opponents.

The president's address was the centrepiece of his two-day visit to Saudi Arabia, his first overseas trip since his January swearing-in.

The speech comes as Trump tries to escape the fallout from his May 9 firing of former FBI Director James Comey amid accusations he was trying to stop a federal investigation into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation past year.
