US President Donald Trump addressed an audience of leaders of Muslim-majority countries in Saudi Arabia on Sunday in a major speech that is being viewed as an effort to reset relations between the US and the Muslim world.

  • Trump addressed the “common values and shared interests” that the United States shares with its Saudi allies.
  • Trump underscored that the US representatives “are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values – to pursue a better future for us all”.
  • The US president also offered some strong words on the fight against terrorism. “But the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them,” he said. “The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children.”
