"Most importantly", he added, "the United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon-never, ever-and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias, and it must cease immediately".

Addressing more than 50 leaders from across the Muslim world who had gathered in Saudi Arabia, Trump rejected the idea that the fight against terrorism was a struggle among religions, and he promised not to scold them about human rights in their countries. "We are not here to lecture-we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship". "Instead, we are here to offer partnership based on shared interests and values to pursue a better future for us all". It "is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations" but "a battle between good and evil", he said.

Saudi Arabia marks the beginning of Trump's first foreign trip as President that includes visits to Israel, the Vatican City, Belgium and Italy where he is to take part in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and G7 summits.

In a highly anticipated speech in Saudi Arabia, Trump lashed out at Iran, accusing Tehran of fuelling "the fires of sectarian conflict and terror" and calling for its global isolation. This makes it also notable that Trump singled out Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organisations; both are anti-Zionist movements which have longed been opposed by the U.S. and Israel.
