President Trump Touts First Overseas Trip As Historic

President Trump said in his weekly address that his first overseas trip will be one of historic significance for the American people.
“I will be visiting with the leaders in many different countries to strengthen our old friendships, build new partnerships, and unite the civilized world in a fight against terrorism,” noted the President.
He stated that he will be visiting countries with three of the world’s great religions.
He said his first stop will be in Saudi Arabia – the heart of the Muslim World where he will address a historic gathering of the leaders of more than 50 Muslim nations. There, “I will represent the views of the American people frankly and clearly,” said the President.
The President stated that although America cannot solve all of the world’s problems, they can certainly help by partnering with other countries that are willing to eradicate terrorism from the face of the earth.
He stated further that he will also travel to the ancient city of Jerusalem where he will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority in Bethlehem to renew friendship and discuss peace and prosperity.

Additionally, the President noted that he will travel to the Vatican, where he will meet and discuss with the Pope Francis how the Christian teachings can help put the world on a path to justice, freedom, and peace.
He also noted that he will meet with friends and allies in Europe at a gathering of NATO in Brussels and at the G-7 Summit in Italy.

Finally, the President said, “I will close my trip by saying thank you to some of the courageous men and women of the United State Military serving their nation overseas.”
