Saudis, UAE pledge $100 million to Ivanka Trump-proposed fund
The meeting on the second day of Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia, part of his first foreign tour since taking office, came hours before the USA president is scheduled to address an Arab Islamic American Summit.
"You'll hear a really strong statement from the president on his commitment to Israel and to Israel's defense", the official added. "The president should have insisted that Muslim leaders end the use of the problematic textbooks throughout the Muslim world promoting Islamist extremism and violence and urge that they examine why terrorism emanates from some Muslim societies", he said.
Some regarded his speech as a positive step towards Muslims. But not everyone was convinced that it was the case.
Indeed, Mr Trump and Mr Salman were in agreement on the threat Iran poses to the region when they addressed their fellow leaders: Mr Trump accused Iran of "destruction and chaos" and the king said its rival "has been the spearhead of global terrorism".
"Terrorism is sponsored through groups like Hizbollah, by Iran, but there are also Sunni Islamic terrorist groups that the Iranians are fighting, not least Islamic State in Syria".
The President also called upon every country in the Middle East to make sure terrorists aren't given "sanctuary on their soil".
The speech in a gilded hall bedecked with chandeliers is part of an effort to redefine his relationship with the Muslim world after Trump frequently attacked Muslims on the campaign trail a year ago and tried to ban many from entering the United States.
"We can only overcome this evil if the forces of good are united and strong and if everyone in this room does their fair share and fulfills their part of the burden", Trump said. "Instead, we are here to offer partnership - based on shared interests and values", Trump said during his speech. "Drive them out of the holy land".
"We signed historic agreements with the Kingdom that will invest nearly $400 billion in our two countries and create many thousands of jobs in America and Saudi Arabia".
To Bahrain's king Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa, Trump declared that the two nations had a lot in common and "there won't be strain with this administration". Trump even complimented Sisi on his footwear, saying: "Love your shoes".
