Saudi Arabia's King Salman welcomes U.S. President Donald Trump to the capital Riyadh. Rough cut (no reporter narration)
ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. U.S. President Donald Trump met with Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Saturday (May 20) in the capital Riyadh as the two countries are expected to hold talks on regional security and defence. Trump, on the first foreign visit of his presidency, has been plagued by controversy at home, largely connected to his dismissal of FBI director James Comey. With delicate diplomatic meetings facing him, including three summits, Trump faces the challenge of advancing his "America First" agenda without alienating key allies. Stepping off Air Force One in sweltering heat with his wife, Melania, Trump and his entourage received a red-carpet welcome from Saudi King Salman. The trip has been billed by the White House as a chance to visit places sacred to three of the world's major religions while giving Trump time to meet with Arab, Israeli and European leaders.
