The UAE's ambassador to the US, Yousef Al Otaiba, said that the donation reflects "our commitment to empowering women in our region and builds on the progress we have made in our country, where women play a role in every segment of society".

U.S. officials did not raise these concerns, as noted by the USA state department's past reports on human rights.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Monday cited a lack of protests against President Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia as evidence of a "genuinely good mood" on the first leg of his foreign trip.

The president on Sunday implored Muslim nations to form a new coalition to defeat extremism during a speech in Riyadh.

Meanwhile, Tillerson also said Monday that Trump's views on Islam "continue to evolve". But obstacles have emerged that may complicate the relationship between the White House and the Israel.

British police in race to find Manchester terror network
Peter Hook, a member of seminal Manchester band New Order, was among the runners and said the tragedy had brought people together. Greater Manchester Police said on Sunday that they had arrested a 14th person in connection with the attack.

"Words fail to capture the experience", he said later.

"There was not a single hint of a protester anywhere during the whole time we were there", he said.

Trump offered few indications of whether he planned to shift USA policy to better fight terrorism. The White House-driven effort is a sharp shift from the practice of US previous administrations that typically gave secretaries of state those reins.

"So, this is a unique moment for Israel and I think that President Trump is taking advantage of this moment and emphasizing its uniqueness by traveling first to Saudi Arabia and then to Israel".

Mr Tillerson referred to the visit as "a moment in time" and suggested that the U.S. would take a more active role in the future in brokering a deal if both sides make serious commitments.

Following a private meeting with Abbas, Trump was expected to make remarks about the deadly explosion in Manchester, England.

Although other presidents have landed here from Arab capitals that have no diplomatic relations with Israel, none has come from Saudi Arabia before.

In response to the CNBC host's point of reference, Ross maintained that there was a "genuinely good mood" in Saudi Arabia during the White House trip.

To get to Bethlehem, Trump's motorcade passed through an opening in Israel's towering separation barrier, a visual reminder of the complexities of the conflict in the region.

While Israeli officials cheered Mr Trump's election, some are now wary of the tougher line he has taken on settlements: urging restraint but not calling for a full halt to construction.
