President Trump is set to give a major speech about radical ideology to leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries when he makes his first official visit to Saudi Arabia at the end of this week, his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said Tuesday.
“The speech is intended to unite the broader Muslim world against common enemies of all civilization and to demonstrate America’s commitment to our Muslim partners,” McMaster said. Trump will also participate in the opening of a center intended to fight radicalism and promote moderation.
While in Saudi Arabia, the president will also have coffee with King Salman, attend a royal banquet and hold bilateral meetings with the king and the crown prince, McMaster said. Trump is expected to participate in a signing ceremony of “several agreements that will further solidify U.S.-Saudi security and economic cooperation.”
