President Donald Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia this week. This was his first official trip abroad. He delivered a speech at a conference in Riyadh about terrorists. Trump urged that Muslim countries should work together in order to drive terrorists out of the Earth. This looked like an effort to readjust his relation with Muslims after his campaign and travel ban. Despite their differences, Trump has a point and has the same goal as Muslims – to fight the terrorists.
President Donald Trump delivered a terrific speech today at the Arabic Islamic American Summit at the King Abdulaziz Conference Center in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
He spoke about cooperation, partnership and working together to bring peace to the Middle East.

But he was also not shy about the need to address terrorism.
From Free Beacon:
“A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists,” he said. “Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your Holy Land, and drive them out of this Earth.”
And he was not shy about calling the terrorism out by name, “Islamic terrorism,” a name that former President Obama and his administration refused to call it, despite the obvious.
“There’s still much work to be done,” he said. “That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds.”
Can you imagine Obama ever saying that?
Holding nothing back, calling it exactly what it is and stating what needs to be done. And no one walked out or exploded because of it, because they who have to deal with it themselves know it’s true.
Donald Trump proves again that he is a better president than Obama. He isn’t scared of anything and does what needs to be done. Let’s hope Muslim countries join together to fight against terrorists.
