Trump tells Middle East to 'drive out' Islamist extremists

The US announced a huge arms deal with Saudi Arabia on Saturday as President Donald Trump visited Riyadh on his maiden foreign tour. Zarif wrote on Twitter on Sunday. Trump was blunter: "Drive them out!" he said repeatedly at the climax of the speech. He's also claimed that he saw Muslims cheering on 9/11 as the World Trade Center was attacked, and in 2015 he called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

Without naming Pakistan, the US President said "every nation has an absolute duty to ensure that terrorists find no quarter on their soil".

Zarif's comments came hours after Trump, who is visiting Saudi Arabia, urged Arab and Islamic leaders to unite and defeat Islamist extremists. He noted that the us arms sales includedBlack Hawk helicopters that would be manufactured in Saudi Arabia.

He is still hopeful that President Trump may be able to unify people, but he says there's a dire need to unite religions and cultures right here in the USA, and also, Qazi wants to see if Trump can do that in how he implements policies.

"If there's one thing we've learned about Trump, it's that he just wants to get the deal done, and he changes his message based on the audience", said Sahar Aziz, a law professor at Texas A & M University and a frequent commentator on American Muslim affairs. Drive them out of your communities.

With the Trump presidency exercising lax control over the sale of weapons, and even laxer over the regional ambitions of its allies, the Middle East may become more tense than it already is. But he briefly referred to his upcoming meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

But Saudi Arabia has embraced Trump, after disappointment with his predecessor Barack Obama's perceived distance from the Middle East's problems, and a tilt toward Riyadh's rival Iran.

Nor will Trump's speech put an end to the Islamophobia and bigotry that he has spent the past two years inciting.

United Kingdom retail sales grow by a better than expected 2.3% in April
The think tank expects the unemployment rate to rise from 4.8% at the end of this year to 5.4% in 2018 and 5.8% in 2019. United Kingdom retail sales volumes rose 2.3% for April compared with expectations of an increase of around 1.0%.

"In sheer numbers, the deadliest toll has been exacted on the innocent people of Arab, Muslim, and Middle Eastern nations", Trump said.

"Trump's antagonism towards Iran serves only the geopolitical interests of Israel and Saudi Arabia, who are the main logistical supporters of the terrorists", he said.

"I think that would be a bad abdication of our global leadership when it comes to advocating for people who are the subject of persecution, or imprisoned, or journalists that are thrown in jail, or people not allowed to practice their faith", Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on CNN. "It is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this very room".

"Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate it", Trump said.

"We thought it was a fantastic idea", Kim said. It's unfortunate Trump didn't use his speech to promote a more liberalized economy, but it's possible he did it during his meeting with the king and other Saudi leadership. He declared Islam "one of the world's great faiths".

Trump's team also hopes his speech will shift attention away from the self-inflicted crises the administration has encountered over the past week ― from Trump's firing of James Comey as FBI director over the bureau's Russia investigation to the president revealing highly sensitive information about the fight against Islamic State militants to Russian officials.

Soon after Trump embarked on his trip on Friday, he was hit with more accusations that, with Comey's firing on May 9, he was trying to squelch a federal investigation into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation a year ago.
