Iran says USA weapons sale to Saudi Arabia will jeopardise regional security

Kelvin Reese | 25 May, 2017, 09:44

In brief remarks during an airport ceremony, the president said he had come "to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and the state of Israel" and that his visit with Arab leaders gave him "new hope" for peace in the region.

"And it must cease immediately".

"That's such a strongly held view around the world, certainly among the Muslim world certainly among the non-Muslim world", he added. Over two days, Trump is to meet separately with both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and visit holy sites.

Speaking in Jerusalem, he said Iran had negotiated a "fantastic deal" with his predecessor Barack Obama, winning "a lifeline and prosperity". "You may find it's the Saudis, okay, but you will find out", he had said in a speech back in February 2016.

Israel's chief enemy in the Middle East - must also cease funding, training and supplying weapons to terrorist groups and militias.

Mr Trump suggested the Iranians thought they could "do what they want" since negotiating the deal.

Dana Loesch praised President Trump for calling out the killing of Christians in the Middle East and for saying "Islamic extremism".

The change in language indicates that Trump recognises that the fight is not against Islam as a religion, but against those who commit terrorism in the name of Islam.

At the end of his appearance with Netanyahu, Trump said that he "never mentioned the word or the name Israel" in his conversation with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador.

Gulf Arab countries long have been suspicious about Iran, and the Obama administration's nuclear negotiations furthered their worries about Iran's regional intentions. "Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?" he asked.

Vanessa Bayer , who has been with the show for seven seasons, will leave the series after the current season, which ends Saturday. Her memorable impressions include Miley Cyrus, Rachel from " Friends " and Jonah the Bar Mitzvah Boy.

The staffer's admission proved to provide ample fuel for the mainstream media and progressives Sunday to bash Trump for his fatigue.

"The U.S. leaders should know that whenever we need a missile test because of a technical aspect, we will test", he said.

Netanyahu, invoking Abraham Lincoln's desire to visit what he called "the eternal capital of the Jewish people, said, "There's no city on Earth where you are more welcome than right here with us in Jerusalem".

Arriving directly from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Mr Trump expressed his hope for cooperation among United States allies in the Middle East.

And on the eve of Trump's visit, an Israeli official said Netanyahu's cabinet has approved confidence building measures with the Palestinians, including allowing building in a West Bank area.

Saudi Arabia was the first stop on Trump's inaugural tour, where he was welcomed with open arms.

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

Tillerson was asked aboard Air Force One if the president still believes Islam "hates us," as he declared repeatedly during the campaign.

"A friendship built on our shared love of freedom, our shared belief in human dignity and our shared hope in Israel at lasting peace".
