Trump, dogged by questions at home, makes first trip abroad

Saudi Arabia working to dazzle Trump in busy overseas visit

Thus, the first leg of his trip, at least, Trump is less likely to hear about these things from his hosts.

The Stars and Stripes is flying in Riyadh's streets, intermixed with Saudi flags.

Saudi Arabia confirmed on Thursday that it will sign commercial and political deals with the U.S. during President Donald Trump's visit to Riyadh next week.

He added that the visit carries many important messages, as it is the first visit overseas by Trump after he assumed his presidency, and is expected to constitute new breakthroughs in strengthening economic relations and developing trade exchanges between the two friendly countries.

Expected to attend are 37 heads of state and at least six prime ministers, said Osama Nugali, a spokesman for the Saudi Foreign Ministry. The summit will bring together more than 50 leaders from Muslim and Arab countries.

Iran denies ever seeking nuclear weapons and foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said Thursday its missile programme is part of its "absolute and legal right to build up the country's defensive capabilities". Also he will meet with President Macron of France, newly elected. He angered the Saudis for what they saw as his abandonment of President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, a longtime US ally, during the Arab Spring protests; his hesitation to intervene directly in the Syria conflict; and his pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran. The reason given was their affiliation with Israeli media outlets, although both reporters are said to be USA citizens. "It's more normal for them than any previous administration".

"There has never been a president taking his first global trip being dogged by scandal like this", said Larry Sabato, head of the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

The concert will also feature a person who plays the Arabian lute.

The shift came, in part, as new domestic energy sources and technologies allowed the United States to ease its decades-old reliance on Saudi oil and gas.

Trump has not always returned the love. Trump's powerful senior adviser, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, led a West Wing team to craft the agenda, laden with religious symbolism.

Therefore, a lot of people are confused, and rightfully so, as to which song Keith would perform in Saudi Arabia.

The Pentagon has already resumed sharing certain intelligence, including satellite imagery, with the Saudi military fighting Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen's civil war, Saudi officials said.
