Questions about Russian Federation chase Trump during first Israel visit

Official Trump's 'radical Islamic terrorism' wording changed because he's 'exhausted'

Zarif was responding to remarks made by Trump during his visit to Saudi Arabia, in which the U.S. president called on all nations to work towards isolating Iran.

And because of other tensions in the region (with Iran) and tensions with previous US President Barack Obama, Trump is being given a pass on his past remarks and is being feted by the Saudi monarchy.

"(H) ere is a list, for the record", she said, "of just a few of the ways in which President Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia was freakish, unseemly, unethical and un-American".

"The past four American presidents, two Republicans and two Democrats, made their first trips to either Mexico and Canada, countries that are close trading partners, close allies, compatible democracies and of course neighbors", she said.

Bellowing into the microphone, he implored Muslim leaders to aggressively fight extremists: "Drive them out of your places of worship".

For instance, British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not wear headscarves during their separate visits to Saudi Arabia earlier this year, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not cover her head on her several trips to the kingdom.

Soon after Trump embarked on his trip on Friday, he was hit with more accusations that, with Comey's firing on May 9, he was trying to squelch a federal investigation into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation a year ago.

Trump was joined by first lady Melania Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump.


President Donald Trump solemnly placed a note in the ancient stones of Jerusalem's Western Wall on Monday, sending a signal of solidarity to an ally he's pushing to work harder toward peace with the Palestinians.

Reports have also emerged that Trump called Comey "a nut job" and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified a senior White House official as a "significant person of interest" in its probe of Russian meddling. He said he had not "information or knowledge" on the matter.

Trump signed deals worth almost $400 billion. It's a nine-day tour of the Middle East and Europe, with his next stop coming Monday in Israel. The U.S. has never recognized Israeli sovereignty over parts of the Old City seized in the 1967 war. While Trump campaigned as a strident opponent of the nuclear deal, his administration is still reviewing whether to scrap the accord.

US President Donald Trump on Sunday urged Muslim countries to deny sanctuary to extremists and called for the global isolation of Iran, which he accused of fuelling "sectarian conflict and terror".

Trump made no mention of the disputed travel ban, signed days after he took office, that temporarily banned immigration to the USA from seven majority Muslim countries: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.

Advance excerpts of the speech had Trump using the term "Islamist terrorism" - an apparent softening in tone - but the president veered off-script in his delivery.

The President edited the speech with his aides during the 14-hour journey from Washington, Spicer said.
