In Saudi Arabia, Trump admits India is 'victim of terrorism'

The US President and The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, on Sunday inaugurated a new Global Centre for Combating Extremist Ideology, based in the Saudi capital Riyadh, aiming to fight radical ideology, especially on the internet.

"Terrorism has spread all across the world".

Tillerson's remarks came the day after Trump delivered a speech widely seen as an olive branch to the Muslim world.

But he said Middle Eastern countries must "honestly confront the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. 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", the president said.

Urging countries to deny terrorists space to operate, Trump said, "The first task in this joint effort is for your nations to deny all territory to the foot soldiers of evil.Every country in the region has an absolute duty to ensure that terrorists find no sanctuary on their soil".

"I think Islam hates us", Trump said during a CNN interview in March 2016.

Speaking in a nation where women aren't even allowed to drive, Trump remained silent on such issues as free speech and women's rights, saying instead that he wasn't there to lecture or "tell other people how to live".

On Sunday, however, standing before dozens of regional leaders, he said Islam was "one of the world's great faiths".

"Saudi Arabia and numerous countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays", Trump wrote on Facebook.

Some 35 heads of state and government from Muslim-majority countries were in Riyadh for the Arab Islamic American Summit, mainly from Sunni states friendly to Saudi Arabia.

President Donald Trump enthusiastically embraced Israel's leader.

Trump, wearing a yarmulke, on Monday became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall.

Trump signed deals worth almost $400 billion.

According to White House aides, there were as many as five different drafts of Trump's speech prepared by different teams of speechwriters, and that the president worked to reconcile those different ideas into his own address.

Trump promised to schedule a trip to Egypt soon, and he singled out the Egyptian's choice of footwear, a pair of shiny black shoes. But Trump's offhand remark was another stark reminder that his troubles at home, including the investigation of his campaign's ties to Russian Federation and his firing of FBI Director James Comey, have followed him across the ocean.
