"Trump is expected to address the entire Islamic world while trying to establish this sort of a strategic partnership with Saudi Arabia, particularly concerning groups like ISIL".

The trip will conclude with the president meeting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders and attending a G7 summit. "And while the pictures from the trip may be great, the White House can't change the headlines that will follow him wherever he goes". Trump, whose denunciations of Iran have been welcomed by the Saudis, wants to frame the conflict not as one between the West and Islam, but simply between good and evil, according to his aides.
