Trump slip up in Saudi Arabia speech blamed on exhaustion

US President Donald Trump on Sunday regarded India among the nations that suffered terrorism, according to a report.

"You saw it from yesterday, even with just the celebratory scene he had at the airport and all of the kind of pomp and circumstance that surrounded yesterday's events", Vitali said of Trump's arrival in Saudi Arabia.

Trump was expected to say: "Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: barbarism will deliver you no glory - piety to evil will bring you no dignity". "A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists". Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land, and drive them out of this Earth!... "The president should have insisted that Muslim leaders end the use of the problematic textbooks throughout the Muslim world promoting Islamist extremism and violence and urge that they examine why terrorism emanates from some Muslim societies", he said.

Commerce Secretary and Palm Beach resident Wilbur Ross, part of the USA delegation on President Donald Trump's eight-day, five-nation overseas trip, told CNBC this morning that after visiting Saudi Arabia he sees signs the Saudis are allowing more opportunities for women and "liberalizing their society". There was instead a much calmer United States leader telling Muslim counterparts that "this is not a battle between different faiths" but "a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it".

In that regard, he noted that the so-called Riyadh Declaration highlights the importance of fighting terrorism and the existence of an association between the United States and the Arab world, as well as a movement to stop the financing of extremism and terrorism.

The plan he outlined in Riyadh included enlisting Muslim countries to deny Islamic extremists territory or safe havens and cut off funding streams to extremists groups.

Trump referenced President Barack and Michelle Obama's trip to Riyadh in January 2015 in which the First Lady chose to forgo a headscarf.

And, most importantly to the delight of Arab leaders, as the White House itself pointed out, Mr Trump was not soft on Iran. In his speech, Trump said the agreements will "create many hundreds of thousands of jobs in America and Saudi Arabia".
