Trump says Iran must never be allowed to have nuclear weapons

"The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children".

In his first foreign speech, Trump on Sunday urged Muslim leaders to take a stand against violence committed in the name of religion, describing the struggle against extremism as a "battle between good and evil".

"From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms, and trains terrorists, militias, and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region".

Popular Video SNL is not a fan of the Trump administration, and it shows with every new skit they produce. "I think it's in our national security interest to advocate for democracy and freedom and human rights, now, with a recognition that you may not get it overnight".

"This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilisations", the president said.

She later said she and others were then told they could not transfer to other flights because "they can't bring up our details". Delays have been reported in Rome, Prague, Milan, Stockholm and Malaga due to the system failure.

But he warned Middle Eastern nations that they "cannot wait for American power to crush" Islamic terrorism, stating that America's role is not to "lecture" or "tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship".

Trump, whose unorthodox approach has spurred some hope on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has done no such managing of expectations. "Honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews and the slaughter of Christians".

But the subtle change - or slip, as the White House called it - could mean the difference between offending Middle Eastern allies and not, a concern for any president looking to create a good first impression with a key ally on a first trip overseas.

President Trump yesterday painted a stark new portrait of US goals in the Middle East in a speech that exhorted Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries to vanquish extremists and signaled the abandoning long-standing ambitions to spread freedom and transform the region, analysts said.

"He's just an exhausted guy", a senior White House official told reporters on background, per The Hill.

Trump condemns 'evil losers' behind Manchester attack
Yesterday, Mr Trump became the first sitting USA president to visit Jerusalem's Western Wall, one of Judaism's holiest sites . From Israel, Mr Trump departed for Italy for an audience with Pope Francis.

After Trump delivered his speech, he skipped a scheduled youth forum in Riyadh, again citing exhaustion.

Trump was joined by first lady Melania Trump, his son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump.

Even before President Donald Trump began his trip to Israel, he already may have made history.

He also argued Hillary Clinton - already the subject of rampant conspiracy theories about her imminent death - lacked the "strength" and "stamina" to serve as President.

"But we need two willing parties", he said then.
