The United States and Saudi Arabia have had an interesting relationship. It has ebbed and flowed as has the past presidential administrations. Thus, it was only a matter of time before people began to speculate how President Trump will deal with the Middle Eastern country. People need not wonder any longer.
Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman spoke highly of President Trump and said the two had come to a great understanding. He surprisingly even seemed to support and defend the temporary travel ban on several Middle Eastern countries. His comments came right after a meeting with the President. The first to occur during his administration.
The Prince released a statement where he indicated the meeting had put things on the right track and marked a significant shift in relations. Relations related to political, military, security and economics. He explained that the following was how they were able to come to a common ground,
“President Trump’s great understanding of the importance of relations between the two countries and his clear sight of problems in the region.”
Salman said the following about the temporary travel ban,
“Saudi Arabia does not believe that this measure is targeting Muslim countries or the religion of Islam. This measure is a sovereign decision aimed at preventing terrorists from entering the United States of America. President Trump expressed his deep respect for the Religion of Islam, considering it one of the divine religions that came with great human principles kidnapped by radical groups.”
The Saudi Prince even seemingly confirmed that the President had a need to be worried citing his own countries intelligence,
“information from Saudi Arabia confirms indeed the existence of a plot against the United States of America that has been planned in those countries in secret by those groups that took advantage of what they assume a security weakness to conduct operations against the United States of America. His Excellency expressed his understanding and support for this vital and urgent precaution measure to protect the United States of America from expected terrorist operations.”
Despite the media’s portrayal of the President, the Prince described the President’s respect and reverence for the religion of Islam. Towards the end of the conversation, the Prince discussed how the President wants to work with the Muslim world and the Middle East. He ended by calling the President a true friend to Islam.
Allegedly, the primary topic of conversation was American investment in Saudi Arabia’s various markets. It appears that as every day passes the President shocks us more and more. He may just be able to accomplish something no other President has done yet.
