Trump ends nine-day overseas trip with a flourish

Trump ends nine-day overseas trip with a flourish

The meeting just so happens to have taken place the day before Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Mr. Trump's first stop on the trip was in Saudi Arabia, where he spoke at a summit of the leaders of more than 50 Muslim and Arab nations.

The president will end the historic trip by speaking to U.S. military members at the Naval Air Station Sigonella, in Sicily, Italy. European leaders he met with at the G-7 summit in Sicily have been pressuring Trump to stay in the accord, arguing that America's leadership on climate is crucial.

McMaster adds, "we have back channel communications with a number of countries".

The president has been pressured by G7 leaders to change his attitude on climate change.

Mr. Trump, who campaigned on withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, delayed a decision on whether to commit to the accord, leaving the other G7 leaders to reaffirm their support without the USA on board.

Almost every nation that signed that 2015 accord, including six other G-7 members, has agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Ms Rudd also revealed that powers to ban suspected jihadis from returning to the United Kingdom have been used for the first time. British extremist Salman Abedi detonated a powerful bomb in a suicide attack at a concert by United States singer Ariane Grande.

By the looks of it, the members of the alliance appeared displeased by Trump's blunt way of calling out other countries for allegedly not paying their fair share.

But almost half of that speech was spent recounting his perceived accomplishments, from concluding an arms deal with Saudi Arabia (it had been years in the making) to forcing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to increase how much they spend on defense (a commitment they agreed to in 2014, under former President Barack Obama).

During his trip, Trump became the first sitting USA president to visit the Western Wall and he described the holy site as "a monument to the perseverance of the Jewish people".

"Palestinians are ready to reach for peace", Trump said. Netanyahu and Abbas sincerely wanted peace in the troubled region. Cohn stressed Friday that the president was simply being critical of the US trade imbalance with Germany.

During that visit to Israel, Trump also made a visit to the Western Wall.

Before departing, Trump thanked the military crowd.

The White House had hoped to use Trump's five-stop trip as a moment to reset as contention at home concerning his campaign's and administration's ties with Russian Federation plays out.

Bloom later tweeted , "9 hours after checking in at Belfast airport we get home after the chaos of the British Airways IT crash". Displays showing flight times had the words "please wait" next to flights instead of information about delays or cancellations.

But first Trump has to finish the day in Sicily, which includes a meeting with small African nations and a G-7 leader lunch.

President Donald Trump is in Taormina, Sicily for a second day of meetings with Group of Seven wealthy nation leaders. "Drive them out of your communities", Trump said.

And he engaged in two alpha-male handshakes with France's new 39-year-old President Emmanuel Macron, who seemed to get the better of Trump on both occasions.

The first occurred when a suicide bomber detonated a device at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, UK.

Trump's appearance in Brussels was particularly galling to the Germans, who after months of painstaking relationship building with Trump - including Merkel's invitation to his daughter Ivanka for a G20 women's summit in Berlin - found themselves under attack from him on two fronts.

Trump said he had helped forge more global cooperation in the fight against militants, a threat he said was underscored by a suicide bomber in Manchester, England, and the killing of Coptic Christians in Egypt.
