Trump's First Oversees Trip As President

Laurie Berry | 19 May, 2017, 18:53

"What President Trump is seeking is to unite peoples of all faiths around a common vision of peace, progress and prosperity", national security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster said May 12. As he tries to calm allies anxious about his "America First" message, he'll be followed by fallout from his firing of FBI Director James Comey and the appointment of a special counsel to probe his campaign's ties with Russian Federation.

Among the critics awaiting him is Emmanuel Macron, the new French President who vowed to take the President to task on climate change after Mr Trump endorsed far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, Egypt's President Sisi and even possibly Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir will attend the meeting, even though he is on a wanted list by the International Criminal Court. "Trump talks about that, but only when he talks to evangelists at Liberty University, and even that he didn't do well".

He raised eyebrows by meeting with Brexit proponent Nigel Farage before seeing British Prime Minister Theresa May, and then suggesting that Farage would make a good ambassador to Washington.

It would be an audacious first foreign trip under the best of circumstances. Although Trump didn't explicitly endorse his opponent Marine Le Pen, he clearly had an affinity for her nationalist ideas and she an affinity for his. Not Trump, though in truth his hostility to the North America Free Trade Agreement would have made either of those stops challenging. He has dropped rhetoric about canceling the landmark nuclear deal with Iran, and he regularly calls it a bad deal.

"This trip will convey that America is back", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a news conference at the State Department.

The President's debut foreign tour was always going to mark a significant test, given the challenging itinerary and his own complete lack of diplomatic experience. "Iran condemns the U.S. administration's ill will in its effort to reduce the positive results of the country's implementation of JCPOA (nuclear deal) commitments by adding individuals to the list of unilateral and illegal extraterritorial sanctions", Ghasemi said on his Telegram channel.

"Iran condemns the U.S. administration's ill will in its effort to reduce the positive results of the country's implementation of JCPOA (nuclear deal) commitments by adding individuals to the list of unilateral and illegal extraterritorial sanctions", foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said on his Telegram channel.

Another stark difference is Trump's first stop: Saudi Arabia.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) PT Raised to $14.00 at Mizuho
Sanctuary Wealth Advisors Llc decreased Advanced Micro Devices Inc ( AMD ) stake by 50.26% reported in 2016Q4 SEC filing. The 12-month average price target stands at $12.64, making a almost 13% upside from where the stock is now trading.

For their part, the Saudis have invested heavily in lobbying the new administration, with whom they believe they can work on issues from counterterrorism to Iran. "Second is this president in particular". "We see them doubling down in Syria. I worry that translates into making promises that seem like a good idea at the time, that are expedient, leave everyone smiling, but are hard to reconcile".

American country singer Toby Keith, known for songs such as "Whiskey Girl" and "Beer For My Horses", is scheduled to perform in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, this weekend in an event that coincides with President Donald Trump's first overseas visit.

Saudi Arabia is a staunch ally of the USA in the Middle East, playing a crucial role in the war against terrorism.

Saudi Arabia backs Trump's efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also agrees with the United States on "confronting Iran's aggressive policies and its support for terrorism", he said.

But leaving the United States for a week might be just what's needed to turn the news wheel again, and to allow an embattled White House a reprieve after the latest round of controversy. Though Pope Francis has said he'd "never make a judgment about a person without hearing him out", others on the continent have sharply criticized Trump.

"This administration is very clear, not just with Saudi Arabia but also with Turkey and other traditional allies, that the idea is to double down on existing relationships and to put allies first", said Mohammed Khalid Alyahya, a Saudi political analyst and nonresident fellow at the Atlantic Council, a policy research organization. He said the Trump administration will retake "our role as convener and facilitator".

Carafano said that given the turmoil in Washington, an overseas trip presents an opportunity. It was "a moment of unparalleled cooperation between two great nations", Bush said.
