Trump Tries To Set Things with Muslims

President Trump was given the highest honour this Saturday in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh where he tried to set things with the Muslims. His enthusiastic stop in the country is the first from the 9-day five-country swing through the Middle East to Europe.
Trump departed Washington as controversies swirled, all centring on the alleged ties between his campaign and Russia. He wasn’t able to completely escape the storm in Riyadh: at an evening news conference, his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was forced to answer a question about the matter.
But for the first bit, his proceeding in the first country went smooth without any bumps. The administration cast the deal as a renewal of US commitment to the region, though many of the sales included in the agreement were approved by the Obama administration.
Trump chose Saudi Arabia — home to the world’s two holiest Muslim sites — for his first overseas trip, in what his top aides have described as an overtly symbolic gesture. King Khalid himself reached the airport for the welcome of the US President, where he was greeted on a red carpet-bedecked tarmac by King Salman and other high-level Saudi officials.
Which featured a military brass band and a fighter jet flyover demonstrated just how highly anticipated Trump’s arrival was to this Middle Eastern kingdom.
A very different side of Trump was seen today when he took over the microphone in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia this Saturday. The Muslim ban President was nowhere to be seen. It was a whole new person giving the speech.




Trump spoke about ‘good and evil’ where he said that the Muslims were not the one to terrorise and the one pushing forth the ISIS. Nowhere in his speech was his rallying cry to fight “radical Islamic terrorism,” a phrase he insisted upon inserting in speech after speech, even as his advisors begged him to stop. Today he softened that phrase to a vow to fight ‘Islamic extremism.’ He spoke of ‘shared interests’ and ‘common security.’
Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children with a hopeful future that does honour to God … Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith,” quoted Trump.
Battling at home Trump expected his speech to show a president re-engaging with the region settling old relationships with nations and making new ones all i=united against one problem: global extremism.
But he had to overcome scepticism his reputation being a Muslim Bashing President and his hard efforts to ban the Muslims from the United States. The very idea of the Anti -Muslim president speaking in favour of them is a little hard to digest but it is definitely something that people did not expect. It was a thoughtful speech, appealing to ideals of democracy.
