Trump Went Off-Script In His Speech About Terrorism

Rouhani further criticized the Saudi summit that Trump attended on Sunday, describing it as a "show-off" that "will not have any political and practical values".

Mr Trump's comments came a day after he urged Arab and Muslim leaders at a speech at a summit in Saudi Arabia to "work together to isolate Iran" unless it is "willing to be a partner for peace". Rouhani, a cleric whose administration struck the 2015 landmark nuclear deal with world powers, decisively won a second term in Friday's election.

The Trump administration rejected a request from the Palestinians to push for an Israeli settlement freeze, but promised to sort out the issue during peace negotiations, according to the official, who was not authorized to publicly discuss the private meeting and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Arriving from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Trump expressed his hope for cooperation among USA allies in the Middle East. Israel was his second stop on a nine-day tour aimed to test the waters for reviving the dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Rouhani told a news conference, broadcast live on state television. Israeli officials are on edge over the U.S refusal to say the Western Wall is part of Israel. The protesters no longer accepted a social contract in which they effectively made peace with government repression, arbitrary laws, state-run media and censorship, and single-party rule, in exchange for security and stability. They've done the same in Iraq since 2003, killing and wounding thousands of our soldiers, primarily through their Shiite militias.

Over the weekend, Mr Trump received the highest civilian honour in Saudi Arabia and bowed while he received it.

In an unexpected turn, he criticised the "reckless pursuit of conflict and terror" by Iran's government, which victimised its own people and supported Bashar al-Assad in carrying out "unspeakable crimes" in Syria.

"The issue of terrorism can not be solved through giving money to superpowers", Rouhani said, adding that his nation would "uproot terrorism" and bring stability to the region.

The president then meets with Palestinian leaders, but officials said he will offer no specific peace plan. "Trump saw millions of Iranians took part in an election, but he visited a country whose people have not seen a ballot box and don't know what an election is". Sectarianism proved to be much deeper than he'd appreciated. "They should have polling stations in place for the people and let the rulers not be on a hereditary basis. They should be picked by the people".

USA arms deals for Iran's Sunni foes help bolster the case of Rouhani's hardline opponents, who say any detente with the West is risky folly.

Rouhani, who defeated hardline challenger Ebrahim Raisi in Friday's presidential election, responded by ridiculing decades of U.S. strategy in the Middle East.

One speech does not a new policy make. In Israel on Monday, he warned of "the threat posed by Iran" through the possibility of it acquiring nuclear weapons and its support of militant groups. "I hope it can settle so that we can have a better judgement about those in Washington", said Rouhani. Yuval Steinitz, a senior Cabinet minister and Netanyahu confidant, called Saudi Arabia "a hostile country" and said the deal was "definitely something that should trouble us".

But where Trump fumbled was in calling for isolating Iran for supporting terrorism within a few days of its re-electing reformist President Hassan Rouhani.

President Trump is spending tonight in Israel, after a day of talking up peace prospects in the region. The White House-driven effort is a sharp shift from the practice of previous US administrations that typically gave secretaries of state those responsibilities.
