There was no evidence of fiery-candidate Trump during Sunday's speech.
Now that he's president, Trump has changed his tune. Here are six figures who praised the president for his Middle East trip.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted Trump on Monday for his visit to Iran's rival, Saudi Arabia, but added that he wanted improved ties with Washington.
On Tuesday, Trump returned to the occupied West Bank for a cursory meeting with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem. He did not weigh in Israeli settlements, the status of Jerusalem or even whether the USA would continue to insist on a two-state solution giving the Palestinians sovereign territory.
And while the tour overseas hasn't slowed the stream of headlines about investigations into alleged Russian influence in Trump's election victory, or his decision to divulge sensitive intelligence information leaders of that country, some veteran political reporters say the president's trip has given him a chance to outline how his administration plans to engage with the larger world. "Anyone who can not name our enemy is not fit to lead this country".
Ultimate power in Iran rests not with the president but with the supreme leader, who is chosen by a clerical panel and has the final say over all matters of state. "The Saudis are intensely hated in the Arab [and] Muslim world and their open subservience to the United States and Israel won't help". In a statement following the meeting, Trump addressed his meetings the previous day with Arab and Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia, and said that there is growing realisation that they share a "common cause with you" in their determination to defeat extremism and deter "the threat posed by Iran".
"So many young, handsome innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life", Trump said, echoing the theme he presented during his meetings with Arab leaders in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Netanyahu said that U.S. The "No to USA terrorism on Yemen" rally was held just 100 yards from where Saudi jets had bombed a funeral last October, killing 140 mourners. "These attacks, they're not done by Swedish people, that I can tell you". "We want our children to grow up without fear". I just don't think feeding their fury with more weapons is a good idea.
Two years later, the kingdom finds itself mired in a stalemate, about 10,000 civilians have been killed and a humanitarian crisis is worsening. "Some estimates hold that more than 95 percent of the victims of terrorism are themselves Muslim".
Trump's support would fail to save Saudi Arabia from its own internal problems, Lazare stated.
In September 2016, Trump asserted during a presidential debate that he was better suited for the presidency because he had more energy than Clinton.
He was less flattering in his assessment of the Trump administration so far.
"Saudi Arabia is one of the most dysfunctional countries in history. And yet you take their money". The World Bank hopes to raise up to $1 billion for women's empowerment initiatives.
THEN: Trump had plenty of harsh words for Saudi Arabia before his election. He has bought into a partisan Arab narrative whose theme is an inevitable (and ultimately military) conflict between Iran and the Arab world, and has all but promised that the United States would fight on the Arab side in that putative war.
Amnesty International, which has recorded human rights violations by both sides, issued a blistering criticism of the arms deal.
It is painfully obvious that Trump and his top officials would rather be in charge of a country with fewer protections on political speech.
Trump's visit was laden with religious symbolism. Trump approached alone and placed his hand on the stone.
