Trump is on his first international trip as president. In Saudi Arabia, he gave a speech calling on the leaders of Middle East countries to share the burden in fighting terrorism. “Terrorists do not worship God. They worship death,” Trump said in Riyadh.
President Trump, in a much anticipated speech on terrorism to Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia, on Sunday said: “Terrorists do not worship God. They worship death.”
Speaking of “bloodshed and terror,” Trump said: “There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it. No accepting it. No executing it. And no ignoring it. 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.”
Addressing Saudi King Salman, Trump said he hopes “today we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to all of our citizens.”
“I stand before you as a representative of the American people to deliver a message of friendship and hope and love,” Trump said at the Arab Islamic American Summit. “That is why I chose to make my first foreign visit a trip to the heart of the Muslim world. To the nation that serves as custodians of the two holiest sites in the islamic faith.”
