Saudi Arabia first stop on Trump's landmark overseas tour

Irune Rengel | 08 May, 2017, 12:20

Trump's first foreign foray comes relatively late in the game, and he'll depart from a tradition every president since Ronald Reagan honored: Making Canada his first or second foreign stop.

President Donald Trump plans to visit Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican later this month as part of his first trip outside the US since taking office.

Trump will travel this month to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican in an effort to unite Islam, Judaism and Christianity in the common cause of fighting "intolerance" and radical extremism. Senior sources told Reuters that Mr Trump was expected to meet the Pope on May 24.

Trump said he would also visit the Vatican along with his swing through the Middle East before attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels on May 25 and the Group of Seven summit in Sicily on May 26.

Macron Should Prioritize Rights as President
Hollande, the most unpopular French leader in the country's modern history, decided not to stand for re-election previous year . Le Pen's election night event took place at a chalet in the Bois de Vincennes, a vast park on the eastern edge of Paris.

A G7 summit in Sicily will offer Trump the chance to sit down face-to-face with leaders of the world's largest economies.

On Thursday, the senior administration official said Trump and team were approaching their Middle East peace plans "with a lot of humility".

The official said that while "conventional wisdom" would tell you that Trump is "weak on alliances", the president is in fact "strong on alliance", provided allies pay their fair share toward defense.

Trump has also vowed to do "whatever is necessary" to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians, a feat successive United States presidents has failed to achieve.

The previous day, Trump met with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas at the White House, and pledged to help forge a peace deal in the region. That had been on the schedule for months, leading to increasing speculation as to why the White House hadn't made arrangements for a Vatican visit, an opportunity no president has missed since Harry Truman.

She said: "The FN's fight must be aimed at ensuring Macron does not have his hands completely free to run the country". Outgoing President Francois Hollande also voted Sunday in his political fiefdom of Tulle in southwestern France.

After receiving a lot visitors at the White House, President Donald Trump is getting ready to make his first foreign trip as president.

Trump's announcement and how his aides framed it to reporters sought to allay concerns stoked during his presidential campaign and then during the first weeks of his presidency that he is anti-Muslim.

Following their meeting, Trump voiced a message of optimism for what he said would be "terrific" talks on relaunching the Middle East peace process.

On the other hand, the official channel Al-Arabiya and the state agency SPA stressed that the visit of May 23 to Riyadh could mark the beginning of the construction of the new foundations to combat terrorism.

Skipping a low-key stop in the United States' low-key northerly neighbor - a traditional dry run on foreign travel for a new president - Trump will instead touch down in the capitals of three major world religions, a dramatic in-person entry into the fraught intersection of faith, politics and national security.
