President Trump to embark on first foreign trip as president

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir has said commercial and political deals to be signed during first foreign trip of U.S. president Donald Trump to the kingdom on 23rd May.

President Donald Trump speaks in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Thursday, May 18, 2017, during his meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

Saudi royals are set to roll out the red carpet for American president Donald Trump during his event-packed visit, although he arrives under the shadow of scandal and the distant threat of impeachment. After Saudi Arabia, he travels to Israel and follow it with a visit to Italy, where he will have an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican. And at all of Trump's five stops on his first overseas trip, his team has spent weeks trying to build daily downtime into his otherwise jam-packed schedule.

"I think both sides have high expectations of this summit, as they are expected to discuss the most pressing issues for both of them like the conflict in Yemen, the war in Syria and the war on ISIL", he said. They've run the gamut from sharing of sensitive national security information with Russian officials to the disclosure that his former national security adviser was being paid by Turkish interests when he made a key foreign policy decision.

It would be an audacious first foreign trip under the best of circumstances.

When he takes off on Friday, Trump will be 119 days into his first term, marking the latest first foreign trip in the past 50 years by a U.S. president.

The trip will conclude with the president meeting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders and attending a G7 summit. Contracts unveiled this weekend could well eclipse those deals, Sfakianakis said.

"If he doesn't, the Saudis will have gotten the better deal", McCants said. And he'll depart under a cloud of controversy, much of it of his own making, including the White House's botched handling of FBI Director James Comey's firing.
