Here's how the world reacted to Trump's Saudi Arabia visit

He also delivered a closely watched speech to the Muslim world in which he called for Middle East leaders to root out extremists at home, while casting the fight against terror as "good vs. evil" rather than the West vs. Islam.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is yet to comment on Trump's remarks.

The announcement came from the World Bank President Jim Yong Kim as the Trump family visited Saudi Arabia.

He said the only sensible move by Washington was the nuclear deal it signed with Iran in 2015, when the USA "talked with respect" and reached a "win-win result". "So much of what goes on is in Jerusalem, and I think we have to see that for what it is". Standing next to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Trump said: "The United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon, and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias".

The view from Iran - captured in one way or another in all of the country's main news media on Monday - is that President Trump was in Saudi Arabia primarily as a sales representative for American arms manufacturers. "We were treated incredibly well", Trump said Monday.

Donald Trump spoke at the Arabic Islamic Summit on Sunday, addressing Middle Eastern leaders at the King Abdulaziz Conference Centre in Riyadh.

Trump, who had repeatedly slammed former President Barack Obama for refusing to use the term "radical Islamic extremism", himself backed away from the term yesterday as he stood before the region's leaders.

Trump is scheduled to visit Italy, Vatican City and Belgium later in the week.

He said he had an "absolute right" to brief the Russians on the intel. He did not elaborate and it is not clear how big the plan is.

USA policy doesn't hold that the city is part of Israel, but the White House put "Jerusalem, Israel", on its website Monday, without offering an explanation. He reiterated the Palestinians' demands, including establishing a capital in East Jerusalem, territory Israel claims as well, insisting that "our problem is not with the Jewish religion, it's with the occupation and settlements, and with Israel not recognizing the state of Palestine". "Our missiles are for peace and for defence", he said.

President Trump also did not shy away from the other reason to be in Saudi Arabia: multi-billion-dollar agreements that will provide arms to the Saudis and provide Saudi investments in American companies. And while Netanyahu in the past has expressed support for the establishment of a Palestinian state, he has been vague about this goal since Trump gained power.
