That's a desire to learn more about a problem, and in the end is very conducive to resolution of the problem.

I believe that's the concept behind this trip. Trump is visiting the holiest sites of all three Abrahamic religions, and the leaders of those religions. How better to get a deeper understanding of the conflicts at the heart of Middle-Eastern conflict (and the terrorism that has spilled over from it)?


I wouldn't go that far. This is about money and power, first and foremost. Religion is just a useful tool. Holiness, sanctity and moral high ground have no place there.

The people in that room and those on his itinerary, that Trump is pandering to, are among the most hypocritical, vile, greed motivated, blood soaked murderers and betrayers of humanity this world has ever seen.

He ended his speech by saying :


I ask you to join me, to join together, to work together, and to FIGHT together—

BECAUSE UNITED, WE WILL NOT FAIL.

Thank you.

God Bless You. God Bless Your Countries. And God Bless the United States of America.




Pink Floyd fans how do you like them apples ?

I think it should be mentioned that Trumps stance was never the racism that plenty of folks seem to shout from the rooftops. It was about putting a halt to terrorism and in turn possibly saving lives.

BS In America Christians commit five times more acts of terrorism than Muslims. So if Donnie is so worried about terrorism then where is the ban from Christian nations?


He has come a long way since his campaign days and I can imagine learned more than any of us will know. Perhaps he's found a better way forward given the vast amounts of intel received.

If he knows so much then why is he clueless about everything? He is the most incompetent person to ever hold the office. Trump is just what Grover Norquist wanted for President someone with just enough brain cells to hold a pen and sign everything put in front of him.


He was treated with a large amount of respect and that is a good thing. Leaders know how and when to approach a situation, in this case, one from strength as the weapons deal would clearly indicate, however I may have a few qualms with that.

I'm sure the terrorist that will get aid from this arms deal will greatly respect Trump for his help.

This Saudi Arabian Terrorism Summit isn't about Trump. It's about gentrifying the Middle East. It's about capitalism and it's about cleansing the area of unsavory individuals through Orwellian authoritianism.

I thought the Middle East was gentrified years ago. Then some fools thought an Arab Spring would be a good idea...

There has been some seriously f#cked up sh1it going off over there the last few years.

When I said he was visiting the holiest sites to learn, I didn't mean he wanted to become a priest, rabbi, or imam. I meant he wanted to understand the viewpoints of those involved from their perspective. That also gets back to the idea of not trying to mold a culture into our narrow perceptions.

People tend to think in terms of their own culture... in another thread some time back, I explained how the South has gotten a bad name in large part because Yankees wanting to live here would insult the inhabitants without realizing it, through ignorance (and a fair amount of arrogance). That lone aspect of human behavior is responsible for a great deal of the tension in the world. It is, in fact, the major root cause of the political division in the US right now.

One need not change their culture to comprehend another. One must understand the other, however, and not view it exclusively through their own culture. It's refreshing to see a leader who understands that.

Actually it's very smart you just got 55 Muslim nations to side with the US


I wouldn't count on all Muslim nations being on the same page, just yet. And, there are only 22 nations at this summit.


There was 55 at the speech he gave the summit involved an agreement he had 22 signatures to help fight terrorism. The anti Trump people are going to try to bash this of course but even getting 22 nations to work together is a big deal. And will do a lot to dry up funds for radical islam.

Yes. I spotted several women among the delegations. None of them were wearing headscarves.

"On same weekend as record-breaking arms deal, Saudis announced $100 million donation to Ivanka fund"


interesting tweet from Donald last year..

Donald J. Trump
June 13, 2016 ·

Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!

clear hypocrisy.

I love his tweets!

Hopefully, Trump will figure that out. I hope he does.


So far it sounds like Trump is saying you all be the way you want to be and we will do the same, but we will come together to wipe extremism off the map. He took it home to their families, innocents dying in all this that he said is an affront to God.

"Radical Islamic"
"Extremists"

Trump used those words whenever he was talking about terrorists.
It was a false narrative pushed by his enemies that he was against all Muslims.
He never was against all Muslims.



The left turns everything he says into something else. Just like stopping immigration of refugees for a negligible 3 month to review how are we vetting them turned into circus where everyone on the left wanted their 15 mins of fame. The world is full of extremest, but the problem is that radical Islamic terrorism is the one extremist group that is effecting the world. One of the big issues is the Middle East has failed to condemn these extremists by saying they are not Muslim. Since this extremism is taught in the mosque that really muddies the waters. I think much of Trump's speech was focused on that these groups are not Muslim and Middle East countries need to shut down these supposed mosques that are basically terrorist factories.

Weird world we live in.

ISIS a Wahabbi/Sunni terrorist cell sponsored by Saudi Arabia used to kill mostly non Sunni and people blame Shia for the state of the middle east and applaud Saudi for attacking Shia in Yemen and are pushing for war with Iran.

Talk about people not knowing the chessboard and therefor not seeing thru this bull#.

Clinton or Trump same middle eastern policy. Seems we never can get the real drainer of Swamp (the Military industrial complex and CIA)

Trump now has an (R) after his name. To progressives/leftists/socialists that stands for Racist. It wouldn't matter if it was Cruz, Carson, Jindal or Kasich... they'd all be racist. It's old. I'm tired of it. Find a new schtick.

That's the way I heard it too.

I'm sure his words will be twisted around to something evil back here, though. It's necessary. Obama the Great had 8 years to show everyone the benefits of his agenda, and we have seen more improvement in foreign relations in the first 100 days of Trump's administration. The only foreign leaders who liked Obama were the ones he was giving favors too. None respected him. So any admission that Trump did anything good is an indictment of the entire liberal world view.

Sometimes, given the extreme bias in the media and the rabid response to anything that might point out liberal shortcomings, it seems Kim Jong Il might not need China's economic support... he might be charging our media enough for lessons in controlling people.

It's same with regressive/rightists/totalitarians when it comes to (D) next to people's name.
Thanks for playing.

This doesn't even make sense. Did Trump try to get donations to his campaign fund while he was there?? Since you seem to think Saudis donated to Trump's campaign can you show me where??
