Iran accused the United States on Monday of selling arms to "dangerous terrorists" in the Middle East and of spreading "Iranophobia" aimed at encouraging Arab states to purchase arms, state television reported. Additionally, the Trump administration's military campaigns overseas have resulted in the deaths of many Muslim civilians, and the arms deal struck with Saudi Arabia will allow the kingdom to continue their deadly bombing campaign in Yemen.
"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", he was expected to say.
"It's a choice between two futures and its a choice America can not make for you". But Mr. Trump still described terrorism as "Islamic" and put the onus on "Muslim nations" to "drive out terrorists".

Trump's "America first" philosophy helped him win the 2016 election and has rattled allies who depend on USA support for their defense. Saudi Arabia is U.S. arms dealers' most important client and Washington's number one ally in the Middle East. But on Sunday, standing before dozens of regional leaders, he said Islam was "one of the world's great faiths". At the meeting she stated, "Saudi Arabia's progress, especially in recent years, is very encouraging, but there's still a lot of work to be done and freedoms and opportunities to continue to fight for".
In a speech to Saudi leaders, Trump used the term "Islamic terrorism" instead of "Islamist terrorism", thereby attributing violent acts to an entire religion and not a more radical sect within.

"There is a growing realization among your Arab neighbors that they have common cause with you in the threat posed by Iran", Trump told Rivlin.
However, the U.S. president did not use his signature term "radical Islamic terrorism" in the speech, a signal that he heeded advice to employ a more moderate tone in the region after using the phrase repeatedly as a presidential candidate.
Trump made no mention of the disputed travel ban, signed days after he took office that temporarily banned immigration to the U.S. from seven majority Muslim countries: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.
Both the original order and a second directive that dropped Iraq from the banned list have been blocked by the courts.
